Honestly? I think you're on the wrong bike. What you need is a V-Rod if you're lookin' for a Harley that winds out.

coastie56 is reading this now saying WTF is this?
Do the big bore and heads and you'll be happy every time you ride. Pistons and boring is dirt cheap when you have the heads off anyway. The big bores 10 to 12 ftrlbs of torque is very noticable in the mid range where you ride most of the time. I have a friend who could stay with me in a drag race because he used a higher lift cam in his EG Standard without the big bore but in normal riding any thing short of WFO I just walk away from him. Dude unless your doing drugs I doupt you ride harder than my buddy. Guy owns his own bar and is constantly putting his tire against the rear wall trying to push the building down!

I have the S&S EZ start cams in my 126" RK and they realy are amazing new technology. There wasn't enough room for electric releases in my stock Road King frame They are less expensive if you have to buy or upgrade your battery,starter,&cables.

Yes it's worth it. Go with 98" and 585 cams, head work, 1.9 intake and u will be in the 110 hp range. It will be like a completely different bike. The 585 cams like 195-200 ccp in a small motor.

Softail Deuce Big-Bore kit

[I'm new to this forum. I hope this is an OK place for this post.]

I love my '98 Sporty (XLH1200). I'm 68, and thinking there might be one more scooter in my future. I'm looking at a Softail Deuce, I think it's a 2002. It looks to me very much like what I think a bike should look. I'm not crazy about the 'solid' rear wheel, but nobody is perfect. The guy wants something less that $9k for it. My recollection is that it has less than 20k miles on it. It's attractive to me.

Two things concern me. 1) It has a big-bore kit, 1450 to 1550 ('88' to '96'). Will that engine hold together long-term? (I don't know whose kit it is, or who did the work. I'm going to try to find out.) 2) I couldn't quite read the handwriting, I don't know if he wants $8100 or $8700 for it, but either one seems low for this machine. Would that price scare you? (...as in, "What's wrong with it that it's so 'cheap'?")

As I approach retirement, this is a lot of money to spend, even if it's a great deal. Honestly, I'm terrified. I have not ridden it, but so far, I really like this scooter.

Anything I should be looking into / asking / concerned about?

The last post before you was in 2012 bout 5 yrs ago so don't expect anyone to respond that was here then.
Your better off starting a new thread. Not really the place to ask new questions here on this 5 yo thread. Go back to the Sportster section and ask a question there and you'll have better results. Welcome to the form by the way )

A big bore from 88 to 95 inches isn't a problem if done correctly. I don't think the price is a bargain.Shop around for prices.

Thanks for your responses, 2wheelrider and autoworker.

I thought that this forum preferred that one post to existing threads, rather than restarting. Maybe I'll make a new thread.

Thanks again,

Paul

Paul,
$8000 seems a little pricey for an 02 Deuce, I'd shop around a little. A friend just paid $7000 for an 07 Street Glide with only 8000 miles on it. There are deals to be found, patience.

No worry about your post. You'll get your balls busted for digging up an old thread and you'll get 'em busted for not searching archives as well. Welcome to the forum, search your questions, post new threads or just hang around and read what others are experiencing with their bikes. A lot of knowledge to be gained here.

As far as your original question. Depends on who did the work and how the bike has been treated. Most guys prefer to buy as close to stock as possible and do any mods they want themselves. That way they know what they have. Most modifications do not increase resale value, sounds like that owner is trying to recoup his expense.
