Well, I have a 103 kit on order and do have I think a good reason, for me anyhow.midnight sporty said:ive hurd that a 95 is more power than a 103 so why the heck does anyone git a 103 i know there a stroker so does this mean there more torque than a 95 or what... whats the deal?
Im real curious as to your reason for running that cam. And when did H-d start building gear drive cams? (se 253 GD cams)Tomkat said:Everyone has some pretty impressive dyno numbers but no body has said how FAR their motor has gone. I converted my 2000 FLTR Roadglide to a 95" at 1700 miles and I'm getting ready to rebuild it at 71,237 miles(current Mild engine, 203 chain drive, flat tops, SE ignition, SE non-HTCC heads, K&N filter, 6 speed H-D brand better OD ratio for Dressers, HSR42, White Bros 2 into 1 "E" series). It looks like the front piston skirt hard coating came off and ate my connecting rod bearing or the bearing got loose and let the piston wander in the bore(chicken or the egg?). Out of that mileage about 20K has been pulling my cargo trailer(about 300#) and two up riding, so my motor never completely unloads at road speed. I've got friends with close to the same set up I have(various compression,head,cam,etc,combos) and some of them have 90,000+ miles on their motors (NOT pulling trailers). This rebuild I'm installing 98" Nikasel cylinders, 9:2 to 1 pistons, SE 253 GD cams, set of '05 flywheels "0" miles, I'm looking forward to see how FAR this set up goes.
DYNO mumbers are for BRAGGIN' rights only. Most guys know what parts are in their engine, BUT, did they put them their themself????
Are you trying to tell us you caught the performance bug? :laugh:midnight sporty said:ive hurd that a 95 is more power than a 103 so why the heck does anyone git a 103 i know there a stroker so does this mean there more torque than a 95 or what... whats the deal?
WAY COOL- THAT'S WHAT I'M TALKING ABOUT. TomkatFXDRYDR said:Tomkat,
A fellow named Lakes who posts on a number of other forums is a drag racer in Oz. He recently tore his motor down after 80K -- and a lot of drag racing. He had cracks in his piston skirts and was still running mid-11s on a 95", Andrews 55 set up with CHAINS - if I'm not mistaken.
Here's part of the thread:
For about the last year, the bike has only been ridden on the track - and once/twice a week at that. These are durable machines and kind of puts things in perspective when we sometimes start to get a little anal about things. Lakes' 95 is quicker than mosty and he dids his share of winning -- with 80K on the odo and cracked piston skirts...
