Sounds mean! you can hear the motor if you listen carefully behind the clutch-belt chatter...
I think this motor has lots of potential above the claimed hp/tq mentioned, of course this would require massaging and attention to detail much like the 120r does when they get "worked".
I have seen these motors with the 4 cams in drag-bikes producing very respectable numbers.
A motor like this sent to Randy or one of the other tuners (Hillside comes to mind) would be impressive I am sure. Not to mention it should have quick rev characteristics like a sportser.

Well...I like the fact that the push rods,lifters and rockers are all lined up. talk about corrected geometry. This motor has it. looks like a BIG sporster motor. Wonder if 7200 rpm would be possible.

[QUOTE=stuntboy88;2205905]I thought the 120r was like 10 grand and it doesn't put out really any better numbers. Maybe a little more horsepower but most of them aren't out of the box 120r's. they are 120r's that have been tweaked and massaged to get about 135hp


The 120R for rubber mounts is $5695.00, add $450.00 for the 62mm throttle body and your about 6 grand.

I agree with 2wheelrider, about the valve train lining up.
BTW Delkron had 4 cam engine cases available more than a few years ago. Didn't catch on with street riders.

Thanks for the info. I wasn't sure how much they were. I heard 10 grand somewhere lol. 6 grand is good bang for the buck. But I would go with the Delkron cause I don't want to have the same thing as everyone else. I think it has a better design to make more power ultimately and 142lbs of torque is real nice I like all the big motors with big power tho. What's not to like??

I think just the price is the only thing that puts me off. I bought a S&S SA126 with B2 heads and paid 8000 cash to my door. A much better motor IMO. But if you want to be the only guy on the block to own one...then you would defiantly be that. I would check to find out what parts will work with what. parts might be hard to find or expensive for that motor. I herd some were that there was a problem with delkron cylinders some were along the line. I was going to use them in a 117 I was building and was told to use zippers cylinders instead. I forget who told me that. If you get one post the dyno#s

Probably won't be getting one until my twin cam in my fxdx blows up. Lol. So, it might be awhile. Haha. But, if and when I get one. I will def post numbers and quarter mile times.

I'd be interested how it vents, via heads, via crankcase, or both?

I wonder if this is a newer version of the billett cases we used in the 90's for racing,a lot were used by nitro racers until the overkill and prp engines came along.
