who sells the best 95" kit

I am looking for a 95" kit for my 01 deuce. I have a pcIII usb, screaming eagle air cleaner. I want the best reliable bang for my buck. I have about 2500 to spend. I have contacted Wes at cyclerama and have been impressed with his knowledge. I have looked at gmr and will be talking to them tomorrow, If anyone has any other ideas that would be great. I am looking for low end power, I typically ride in the 2500- 3500 range, single rider.

thanks

If the grunt, in that rpm band only, is what you want, then an Andrews 26 and some headwork. Many dollars left over at that point.

dont think kit. think about machining and headwork from those that do it everyday. your headguy will interview you and determine the best build.

those that provide knowledge and product will save you money, hand you a build that you nly do once, and lend support.

with your budget, WFO larry, hillside, bigboyz , RRCYCLE (what gmr sells), nw guy 4 fn (deweys headshop) all can meet your needs.

until you have ridden a real 100 lbs tq that hits early, never setle for just low end. power is like a gun----its better to have and not need than to need and not have!

good luck, we enjoy someone doing their own build with quality stuff.

When I did my 95" I didn't do any head work. I had the cylinders bored, new high compression pistons (cast not forged), woods tw-6 cam. I loved it. My brother had the exact same kit in the same bike except he had head work done and he had slip-ons. He wasn't any quicker than me. I think the Fat Cat did it for me. He had $2000 in his kit, I had $1000 in mine. We both did our own wrenching.

Many good packages available. Check-out Head-Quarters' website to spec and price your kit:

http://www.head-quarters-usa.com/ushome.html

Also, nice write-up there on the "2008 HQ Power Tour" confirming the reliability and fuel economy of performance builds from 95" to 120".

95" kits

Many good kits out there. Without head work it's a crap shoot, the head work I like is the R&R 5 axis cnc machined stuff. They really know how to take the guess work out of it. Probably because they work on over 2,000 bikes a year themselves. Their stage 2-1/2 will get your heart pumping in your price range.

Are you doing the work yourself, or paying a shop to do it? Is your budget of $2500 including labor, or is that just for parts?


I would highly recommend going to 95" with your stock cylinders bored, having your heads ported/polished and milled for 10-1 to 10.2-1 CR, a set of Woods TW-6 (G if gear driven) cams. I recommend www.bigboyzheadporting.com for the headwork and cylinder boring, Bean will take good care of you. You can also do the 1.9" intake valves to get a little better breathing if you want.

Very reliable build, and very powerful from start to finish.

Steve

IMO 98" setups are the way to go over the 95" nowadays. Still using your cylinders, proven reliable and cost effective. Im liking mine! Steve will fill you in.

learning lots

I talked to a bunch of people today, there is a lot of helpful people
still undecided who I will go with, they all seem to get about the same numbers. I will be doing the work myself. Are my cylinders that are 95" now able to be bored to 98" without going to thin?

thanks

I would suggest a hq 0039 or an andrews 37 and do some headwork. The kb pistons are good because they can fitt tighter than any and their flattops are already cut for large valves. The sad fact is that you will probaley want a little more, later. The larger intake valve and a proper port is very important. If you go with better valve springs, you can use the stock rockers up to about .575 lift(per HQ) .

That seems to be the consensus now.

Call some sponsors and get some ideas from them. They are fun to talk to about what is available for your bike.
