Brian,

That's a nice looking dyno!! Three questions - 4th or 5th gear, SAE or STD, and which Crane cam?

Very nice indeed!!!!!!!!!.............still think there is a bit more to be had with slightly larger T/Body.

Would be nice to see what pipes you were running too.

All the best, Ozzie

Hey Brian,

I caught 120 TQ with the 98, Deweys heads, and a TW6HG a couple of weeks ago. Steve asked me for the dyno. Wonder if that is what he is talking about.
You have to let us know what off the shelf Crane cam pulled 120 TQ, though!!

Hey GRock! That is EXACTLY the one he is talking about. Reckon I could get it? There is probably an RP t-shirt or skully in your future in trade.:brows: Didn't get an AFR graph from Wes and he keeps his cam choices close to his vest. I'm sure he would tell you if you gave him a call. Thunderheader was the exhaust and Wes said that he has a piece that he puts into the end of them that completely removes the T-Header "dip" but the customer wanted the bike quick so he didn't get a chance.

Looking for some understanding on this Revolution 98" build.

I saw some 95" cylinders on the counter of a Harley dealership today and was looking at the sleeve.

Now from what I was able to measure with my handy pocket tape measure was that if you remove the sleeve so that you can get a 3 15/16" bore you will not have any cylinder sleeve sticking down into the block and if you do. Would it be thick enough to keep the cylinders in place without breaking? I guess I just don't see how there would be enough metal without boring the case for the cylinder to stay put.

Any enlightenment would be appreciated as I am looking at doing this build next winter.

You are absolutely right in speculating that with a conventionally sleeved cylinder, especially OEM casting material, that there would be a lack of stability. Because the Revolution cylinder is a one piece unit with no sleeve and a plated bore there is nothing there to move around and we are able to utilize a thinner bezel wall without fear of movement.

Brian,

Another question. Do you coat the piston skirts also with the NSC coating? Also, when are you planning on having your tappets available?

Thanks,
Bill

Hey Kohn,

No, the pistons are not coated. The tappets are available now. I will have pics and details up on the website by tomorrow.

Thanks!

Brian,

A new question about the 98" kit. You say on your web page that it has a compression ratio of 10.5 to 1. Is that with stock heads? Special gasket? Special head CC volume?

Thanks,
Bill

That is based upon an 85cc, stock combustion chamber with the .030" head gaskets that come with the kit.

Thanks,

With the 98" kit are the wrist pins the same size as the stock HD ones? How many grams do they weigh?

Hey there Mr. Kohn,

Thanks for all your great questions. The wrist pin is a .927 pin just like the OE's. It is tool steel and it weighs 118.0 grams.

Can you get the pistons about .0028 diameter smaller so that a anti-wear coating can be applied to the piston skirt and a ceramic coating of the top?
