110 drop on kits on a 96" motor
« on: February 10, 2018, 08:57:37 AM »
A friend has an '08 Street Glide, does the 110 drop right on? Does he need to do anything with the heads? I know he should, but in general he's kind of cheap.
Given all that, which cam would be a good fit? He likes to race, but I think he would appreciate a bike with good low end and mid range over a higher rpm motor.

bolt it on with a CR575's...or many others cams as you well know

I have low mileage used SE204's and Andrews 54's = loved both...just can't leave well enough alone  :banghead:

he won't know it's the same bike after it's done  :chop:

flat top or domed pistons available depending on cam choice

for just a little more $ I'd at least have a performance valve job done with new valve seals

Gaining a bunch of swept volume, I would be looking for a cam in the mid 40's intake close if he intends to use the stock heads which are likely around 85cc. Even a Andrews 54 will end up over 200 ccp. He will need a good tune.  In all honesty I would purchase a set of 107 pistons, bore the existing cylinders and use the money he will save on the 110 kit for some headwork.
If you don't have a sense of humor you probably have no sense at all.

Just exploring possibilities right now. I doubt he will pull the trigger on anything, but if he does, I have a feeling he will have the dealer do it, for some reason he trusts them more than an experienced Indy shop. So that means an HD package with their canned tune on his SERT, no Dyno tune.
He's weird that way. I've learned not to push on him, just make mine slightly faster.

the dealer will likely offer the SE585 or SE259 - both have worked well in the builds I was involved in

the 259 definitely having more of a hotrod feel and made better(?) (read:more) power but the 585 was strong and torquey and just pulled seamlessly

I liked them both

Not really, I try to kick his ass every time we race!
He's a stubborn son of a gun, so I give him suggestions, and then just let him go his own way.
When I did the 95" upgrade years ago, I never told him it was happening. Just showed up in the spring with a new exhaust "and re-jetted carb." I let him stay really close when we raced, even let him get the jump once in a while and pulled up on him slowly. Then, finally, I just let it rip and pulled so hard on him he almost blew his Evo motor (no rev limiter) trying to keep up. He could not figure out what the hell was going on. I finally had to tell him the whole story so he wouldn't blow his motor.
I think he thought the new 96" motor would keep up. Nope. Still pulled him. So maybe he's ready to do a major upgrade to finally win the battle. Which, of course, means my 103" might get some love before he's done with his....
I can be such a dink.

The only difference between a 96 and a 103 is the bore. They use the exact same cylinder, just the 103 is bored larger. 3.750" vs. 3.875". The case is the same.
