    I have been looking at buying a new street street glide and i have noticed that all the soft tail modles have a 96b engine and all other modles have a 96 engine. what is the diff and way if there is any.

    96B is a internal balanced engine .. only used on softtails to help with vibration .. the balancers also soak up some HP parasitic drain or load.. you should figure 3% HP loss
