88 then bump it to a 95

y less money on the 88 and a well built 95 will out run a 96 and be just as reliable depending on your riding style.

Faast Ed wants to know where he is and how he got here
One of them comes with a 6 speed and better tensioners. Problem is there is a slight bit more parasitic drag with the 96 er's but not enough to ruin it.

Me likes the 96, and it was an easy conversion to 103".

Both engine's are basically the same. A twin cam air cooled v-twin. One has more cubic inches and a 6 speed. Both respond to modifications. Both are fine stock. A 96ci is going to be a newer bike. Personal preference as with any type of bike.

the 88 is the same engine as the 96 the only difference is the 96 is a stroker witch makes it a 96. but I agree with oslow, an 88 with a big bore kit will blow away a 96, even if you put a bigbore kit in the 96 and make it a 103 Ill take the 88=95 anyday.

that post only proves that a well built not a stock HD 95 kit(i use the term stock hd kit loosely) will out run and perform a stock 96 Ci bike. add a baker or S&S 6speed and you will really have some bragging rights over anyone that has a newer 96 bike.

if anyone wants to question that i have a coupe of guys i ride with that will happily show you there tail lights all day long with there 95's. one of them i would even put up against a stock 103 kit (again i say this loosely an HD 103).

Original poster ya it comes down to preference as in anything.
Plain and simple when you compare apples to apples.
same conpression same heads cams etc.the more ci is going to win out.
Human nature sometimes gets in the way of honest opinion.
you know what I have is better because its mine!
when you go to a big bore 95 from a 88 you increase compression more than what a stock 96 has so that isn't a apples to apples comparison.
Although even with the increased comp of a 95 ci and Andrews 26 cams with stock heads...my stock head 96 with 204 cams produced better numbers on the dyno than the friends 95.
Even showed up more on the street
and this was his RK against my ultra!
Of course Dennis I was running true duals.....wait a minute so was he LOL!


o-YEA I agree one is just as reliable as the other...Once you address the junk cam tensioners in the 88's
