cylinder and head compatibility

I have a 1999 FXDS (88 ci ) i would like to know if 96" 2007 BT cylinders and heads will fit. I still want to use my intake and rocker boxes etc??
It would be nice if I could purchase these and upgrade my cubes without breaking the bank

Without a crank change , it'll still be 88 CI.

06 heads will bolt right up, better flow and you ca use a higher lift cam with the 06 stock beehive springs. The 06 heads might have the motor mount bosses for an flh but no issue just mask them off and hit them with black bed liner and they wont be seen after install.

jammer45u is reading this now saying WTF is this?
Bore on the 96 is same as the 88. They got the extra displacement with stroke.

No need to buy new cylinders, just bore yours and get new pistons to make your 88 a 95.

Search the site for 95 builds, plenty of good information and ideas to help your decision.

Good luck on your build.

So here is how it winds up - hope i am not in trouble.. I just purchased a complete top end for a 2008 FLHX the heads are part 17192-06 and 17193-6 the jugs are 1593-99 X2 . are the jugs still the same bore as the 88ci.. Oh well the project begins.. I just completed the complete feuling camchest upgrade pump and all to the 2007 specs.. ( IT ACTUALLY RUNS )
Now is the time for a little more CIs.. I love working on this thing to bad its so dam expensive.. I would like as many pointers as I can get.. Thanks

You done good, the parts you purchased will work with no issues, just need the 1550 pistons to get your jugs bored for them. You will also need the 06 and up intake flanges to use the same intake on the early heads. Part number 26993-06

Thanks again.. Is there work to the heads that should be done.? ( my cams are fairly mild not real high lift - feuling 525 series )
How do I determine the compression ratio.. I would like to be close to 10/1 if that is reasonable.. as you stated earlier the valve springs should be OK.. I read allot about different types of gaskets. What do you suggest..

On another note - I belong to the local HOG chapter ( 230 members ) and I cant locate anyone to even talk technical with or get advice..
thanks

sgmfisher wants to know where he is and how he got here
Why have you gone the hard way Keith?? Axtel makes a 97" kit for the 88" engine that costs less than $500.00 where they bore your cylendars and you get new pistons, rings, pins, locks, and a complete gasket rebuild kit. That is just about as good as it gets. In the wind.

Here is a reference chart which may help you out & the BBs Calculator.

http://www.bigboyzcycles.com/TwinCamComp.htm

Alot will depend on what it is your wanting to achieve as far as Tq/Hp.... 95" + Street port does wonders with the right cam vs rider-bike weight.

thanks Pops I bought the whole top end mainly for the heads but also so I can get the cylinders bored without taking my baby down for long..

Dare that is a good calculator very cool thanks.. I need to figure out the cc of the 2007 head.. I don't have a good way of doing that.. Maybe there are specs on the stock 2007 head somewhere..
thanks

rocker compatability

are the rocker assembly's from a 1999 tc head compatible with a 2007 head.. ( I hope so )
Is there a particular brand of gasket set for the top end that is the best.
I am having my cylinders bored out to 95ci and I have 2007 heads I would like to have 9.5 to 10 to 1 compression. what is the best brand and type of piston to use.. also I dont have very high lift cams. ( feuling reaper cams Intake 525 and exhaust 535 )
Advice is greatly appreciated and thanks..

Cometic seem to be a good choice and I've been using wiseco pistons for years. Buy the pistons first because many kits come with gaskets. They make a a forged piston look like jewelry and as strong as a diamond! Make sure who ever does the bore and hone follows wiseco's specs and matches the piston to the cylinder.

When I was checking out pistons for my 95" this helped me. http://www.v-twinforum.com/forums/tw...ine-95-bb.html Check the spec's on the cams you are looking at. They have a sweet spot for compression. I had my heads cut to 80cc to get the 9.8 comp I needed for my 37g's. Talk to a good porter. I went with BigBoyz myself but there are many here that can help you. Good luck!!
