This is a technical site. For fun, check out some of the lifter discussions. Same discussion, countless times, and they go on and on. No kidding. Welcome.

Back to your dyno sheet. Your new claim is 10.9:1 compression @ 148". Is this correct?

Yes, it is. First you said 10.5, now 10.9. I assume you are going with 10.9.

187 hp from 148" at 10.9 compression? BS.

I never said 10.5. What time are you performing surgery?

Not for nothing but Post #20 states stock comp which is just under 10.5.

Nice bike and welcome aboard . I not trying to find out how you made the power you did , I appreciate you posting what you did. I ridden a 143 as it is stock and it did not impress me with its low rpm response and frankly the horse power when you consider how big it is. I probably catch some grief nothing new but its far from a race motor lol at its compression ratio.  I know some like the 635 but not me .... So I decided to go a different route .  I ridden a 124 that Steve built and the stock 143 and to be honest the 143 did run harder but not a huge amount and the 124 has a ton of better low end response . How does your bike respond down say at 2800 or 2900 and roll on the throttle . Thanks again Jim

OP,

What can you tell these guys about the camshaft, headers, collector, and heads?
Heads flow what or who did them?
Exhaust steps and length?
Collector dimensions?
Camshaft specs?
Who’s dyno?

When you put the smack down with those kind of numbers you make people feel small. Make them feel smaller by being a little more transparent, keep in mind, the “sharks”  are circling, not me, I never get off the boat.

  This what I think the fellow said , custom grind and the 625 did a good job so you can go from there , custom pipe with a maga cat DD I think muffler . I would assume a stepped pipe . Heads loved on lol so I have a number in mind but I going to keep that one to my self

JBroski, again, no skin in this discussion. I don’t know you, and wouldn’t conclude that I did based on forum posts like so many seem to do.

Did you measure the head CC, dome, and crushed gasket assembled? I’ll take an answer here or via PM which will remain PM between you and I, if you’d like.

Knowing GB did the heads, valves, and pistons, that stroke makes a whole pile of sense.

I’d be real interested in knowing how frequent tear downs are required. I know GBs thoughts and reasoning on the Ti valves, but never met anyone that put miles on one of those builds.

didn't measure any of that, flat top piston, s&s only makes one thickness head gasket. i'm curious about tear down too, will follow up with any info.

Jbroski, so you don’t know what the compression is, which is fine. That’s where all the BS came from and could’ve been avoided. Back calculating it via a CCP test isn’t the proper way to do it, but it might give a small indication of where you’re at with some other data points.

Did you do a CCP test, and can you part with any of the camshaft info?

FWIW, I’m pretty excited about this build.

When Star did my heads the CC's went from 89 to 90.8.
I didn't know their CNC program did the chamber also.  :emoGroan:

No, S&S 89cc 2.00/1.605.. I'm only 117".
I asked George about a larger valve and he told me the 2" would be plenty for me.
I was shooting for 10.8 and gaining a few cc's wasn't in the plan.
I'm guessing I'll be around 140hp without my bottle..

I hear you and am not a huge fan of the surprise. You can make it work though.
