No, he has it in a '95 Road King.
I don't have any idea of the actual numbers it makes.
I will tell you that I BARELY outrun him with my 107 which is a fairly strong runner.

I hope others have better luck with their 111 than I have had. I put mine in winter of 2010, I had trouble also with running rough at 1800 rpm like the other poster has. Mine was mostly getting the jetting right, it's still not perfect but better. Now for the big whammy! The crank pin is soft on these engines aparantly. Mine started making noise on my way back from vacation. It has 19,000 miles on it. Any way the heat treating doesn't go deep enough on the pin, I'm hoping they have solved the problem. My engine went in the shop Aug.13 and I got it back Nov.2. To say the least I'm not too happy with S&S for taking so long during riding season. They ended up putting in a new crank assembly, lifters, oil pump, rods, pistons and rings, and valve springs. My engine isn't alone with this problem, the shop where I took it says he has fixed 2 others that were out of warranty. I was lucky I still had 2 months warranty left. As far as fitment to the bike no problem on mine, I put mine in a bagger.

This is my second S&S engine, the other one wasn't very good either, circlip came loose on piston pins, both pistons, and scored the cylinders at 30,000 miles. Lifter came apart at 60,000 miles and ate the cam and oil pump. I'm hoping the have improved the heat treating by now on the pins. The 111 is basically the same engine as the 117 and 124 just different stroke and valve springs and I haven't heard of any of those being bad. Duno, I'm just a lucky one I guess!

My first S&S engine was a 88 wasn't too happy with that one after the piston thing. just my luck. As far as getting S&S to admit they have a problem, good luck. They tried to tell me the rod race was bad in my 111, I asked if the rod race ruined the crank pin or vice versa. I got blown off with them saying they weren't sure. The shop I took it to had already diagnosed the crank pin

len thats my opinion to
s&s tell me when i called them on the phone when i had
my 107 s&s engine stated above there is no way that motor is bad because
its has left our building.
by the way i heard the 111" shold have at least 2800rpms to runns good sounds odd because its have a very good bottom end on the dyno chart s&s have on the home page and other dyno charts i have seeing.

regards speed.

When I put the engine I thought about changing the transmission sprocket to gear it higher but because i pull a trailer with it and they said not to, keep it between 2500 and 3500 rpm when loaded
