Screamin Eagle 95" upgrade

[I]'ve got a 05 Heritage and i'm getting the tensioner upgrade done and figured I would go ahead with the 95" upgrade. My question is how reliable is this build. I'm happy with it now, but a little more power riding 2 up would be nice. I'm also having the valve seals replaced and the heads cleaned up, it has[the typical oil consumption problem due to the 05 seals. The mechanic said it wouldn't be worth the money putting the Screamin Eagle heads on.
The build will be the 95" flat tops, 203 cams, new cam bearings, hydraulic upgrade, sert, mechanical compression releases, clutch spring, and will be dyno tuned after 500 miles.
Again just after a reliable build with a little more power.

Thanks, Wes/I]

I would say you have lost very little in dependability but why are you going to run a new motor out of tune for 500 miles?

Sorry for the confusion,
It will be tuned but he would like to have it back at 500 miles after break in and spend several hours on the dyno.

I may still be looking up skirts here, but what it looks like to me is that those year heads would fall into the catagory of money well spent to have them not only polished but street ported as well. Yeah many would agree with you who have used SE heads with the 1.9 valves etc., to not satisfy the $$ per tq/hp ratio aspect of a 95" reliable/long lasting build...

Im just saying it will be money well worth spent and danm it required if your going to be doing a respectable 95 ". Look into it.

Like others said, I wouldn't put it back together until you had the heads reworked. Give Steve a hollar over at GMR and see what he can do for you. Or any of the other site sponsors for that matter.

coastie56 is reading this now saying WTF is this?
I have the same set up. Got 80hp, 98tq. The stock crossover on my RK cost me a few hp. Heads worth about 10 more. Bike is much more fun now, and passes trucks much better. Definitely consider a 30 thous head gasket. A little more squish and less prone to detonation.

Looks like a very good plan.Have the heads decked for desired compression with your cam and ported while off.

I had a similar upgrade done while I was in there doing the cam chain tensioners. 95" 10.5:1 forged Ross pistons, SE 253 cams, ported heads w/ new guides/springs/seals, adjustable SE pushrods, SE clutch spring, and some porting on the intake.

It took a while playing with the tune but it hauls butt. I dropped only 2mpg off with my upgrades, which is surprising as I expected to loose more. The thing hauls some serious butt now which is saying a lot for an 800+ # bike and a 300# rider.

I've got about 3500 miles on it now since doing the work and there haven't been any issues...well there is one. I need a new back tire now.

I bought mine with the SE 95" kit including heads done to it by the previous owner, it had 5K on the upgrade when I bought it, and I've put 10K on it over the last two years...all trouble free.

My cam bearings went after 26,000 and I did the 95 inch upgrade with 203 cams & NO HEAD WORK! After some research and talking to some genuine engine builders the $$$$ spent on head work is not worth what you get. I did the straight-up out of the box SE 95" big bore kit with a dyno jet kit in carb and I cannot believe the difference. I bought the bike new in 2000 so I know how it ran.

You'll never regret it. Look harder at bigger (?) cams and heads. It's a Harley. If you want a rocket.....buy a mustang GT. You'll love the extra power.

Sorry any engine builders that says it isn't worth doing the heads on a 95" kit isn't a builder worth talking to.

Well the build went very well. The old parts look as good as the day they were new, including the tensioners. I achieved exactly what I was wanting and the motor is very quite. Simple 95" Screamin Eagle kit, new cam bearings, tensioner upgrade, stock lifters, sert, manual compression releases, cleaned the heads up and lapped the valves, stage 1, and v&h longshots.
Thanks to everyone who chimed in.
