Well,

Here goes. I do NOT have a shop, a lift table, air tools, etc.

I DO have a one car garage, a concrete floor, a bike jack, a auto floor jack, and air compressor with blow gun, some battery tools, and all kinds of hand tools and wrenches.

Lets see how many pix I can take, so the next member can see what's up with this, and how easy (or hard) this engine swap really will be.:woohoo::woohoo:

Right now, I am going to auto zone and buy a case of brake clean and a bunch of wax rags.

Thanks Dan. I want to give an overview so folks can see if they wish to tackle an engine swap themselves, or pay to get it done.

The "Patient"... a 2010 Ultra. This bike has been totaled by progressive and has a 'salvage' title. It's MINE free and clear and a very good candidate for this type of operation. I feel there is a 100% chance of the patient surviving!!!:woohoo:

The Patient:











As it can readily be seen. Kind of a POS bike. Engine and drivetrain this year, paint and chrome next year.

Congrats on the new motor. You'll have her in there in no time. If these had been around when I first started building mine and I knew what I know now, I'd have one of these in my bike too.

Wurk Truk installs a 120R Reply to Thread

It looks just like the process my scoot will go through within the next month. I believe we have something in common. :whistle:

Jim, when he gets there with the bike for tuning, cut the wires inside the sheath for the 02's, he will never know. Better yet, pull them out, melt them down and make something useful out of them.
What you doing for exhaust, might have something around here to play with.

Comp releases

Hey, you are going to be a very happy guy soon.... Hat's off to you for tackling this yourself.
Will you be installing any comp releases? I didn't, and should have. Might have been fine with stock primary gearing, not so happy with 22/37 primary. Clutch?? I have the Primo Rivera Pro with lock up and gold spring. Dyno STILL showed slippage below 3,500. Seat of the pants dyno can not feel/hear it though.
It becomes a unicycle any time I want below 30 mph, slippage? who cares lol....

You go Wurk! That being said, I would probably strongly consider Boatnut's advice as he has some experience behind his belt. We should crown him Member Emeritus for all he has been through and how he can help the rest of us. -Tutt

Well. It's been five hours. Went to eat. Also went to Autozone for Microfiber towels and a case of brake clean. If I would have had my electric impact gun, I would have had the primary all torn down, but............... here it is so far..........













I'm going to do the paperwork correctly on my bike. MOCO will be sending me a Manufacturers certificate or origin. I will take that and go have the bike inspected by the same dudes that inspected it for the salvage title. Once done, my title will reflect the new motor. I'm doing all of that so I can sell the engine... it will no longer be part of the bike, even though it will have the VIN.

The 120R came with a bunch of plastic plugs. After the 120 is all installed, I will remove the tape from the holes in the 96, and use all of the plugs from the 120R. Just like the 120, I will spin on a filter to plug up that hole.

I was kinda up in the air about this, but this 96 has 12K miles and I want to sell it. I will use the whole crate and skid from the new motor and the old 96 will be ready to go!!!

I am going to re-use my CPS and temp sensor. I have a new MAP sensor coming with the TB. Feels good to get this show on the road and hope to be riding the bike 14 days from now!!! (gotta fit all of this in with a bunch or work YAY!!).

@gree: Jim
That guard looks like it got run over by a bus. What's busted and missing on the bike ? I would run a WTB add in the parts and pay forward section and see what comes up.
Great post mate looking forward to the engine porn photo's.

I wish you luck. but me thinks once they read the MCO they wont issue a license for it. mine scared me so much,I have it tucked away . if I need it to prove it is my motor,then I will produce it.
it clearly states for off road use only. you have that puppy dog way of charming authority figures,so maybe they will tow it to your crib instead of the impound lot.:clap:
you start painting it blue already? :whistle:

this is going to be a great thread!
:clap:
Thanks Wurk Truk!!

However, I really didn't see all that much damage on that "POS bike" to total it...

I guess the thing now is to try and get bikes totaled to get a new one.

What MB said. Hands-down these 120Rs are winners and this is going to turn out great! Good on ya Wurk.
