Larger HD motor

Postby NVSB4 » Tue Oct 27, 2015 2:38 pm



I've just run across a bunch of stuff about a 120 ci (1966 cc) Screaming Eagle "Performance" crate motor that you can install for only $5700 (doesn't come on any bike yet) that is now "street legal" in all 50 states.
120CI Screamin’ Eagle SE120ST Crate Motor

It produces a whopping 106 hp and 117 lb-ft of torque at the rear wheel.
Hasn't the stock GL1800 put out 118 hp with 123 lb-ft torque for the last 15 years?
Shoot, the stock 1500 has 100 hp and 111 lb-ft torque starting 27 years ago.

And...you don't have to worry about your teeth chattering while you're grinning. :D


It's never too late to have a happy childhood!

I haven't read about this due to lack of interest in HD.
Just had a very brief conversation with a HD owner that spent a bit over $2k on his $20k bike to get it to 96hp.
The one sided conversation ended when I mentioned that my $4k 27 year old wing had more hp and torque than his.

I gotta chime this, hopefully you'll at least chuckle.
.
Pool team mate said his HD will out run my Wing, I said it won't. Back & forth it went then our mutual bud leaned over and whispered, his HD built to the hilt.
REALLY, i said. That's OK, he WILL lose.
HD dude finally dropped it. He must have realized that he can't win.
.
I know why he can't win Anyone care to 'Esplain?' 8-)

I take it you've never been challenged to a race.
He who has been challenged, gets choice of rules.

He's got a HD, it was at 9 PM on a cool night when most HD's run there best.
My rule would have been, "Last one to Denver (blah blah bet) starting right now."

Well it so happens I have on the bike almost all the time...
a change of clothes,
a waterproof cold weather jacket,
ski bibs and long socks,
couple of snack bars,
and usually 1/2 gallon spare gas in sealed canisters.

Get it? .. .. .. I think he did too. LOL!
:twisted:

I certainly like FM-USA's suggestion. But the only true way is to do such a race over a measured distance, more than a 1/4 mile and ideally have both bikes ridden by a rider used to going 100MPH. Best time wins!

But you do have to be careful and a highly modified HD can have a very powerful engine---how much are you willing to spend?

your right, ive never been challenged to a motorcycle race, but if your talking about an endurance race, i think a goldwing would beat a HD,(ANY HD) every time no matter what size motor the HD had on it just on the merits of the bike itself.

As it was, he made no other statement, just "My bike that will beat your Wing."
It wasn't a race of 1/4 mile or endurance, he made a rather simple statement. HUGE mistake. 8-)

Long story short, he never brought it back up.

His demeanor, When he tells others what I ride, he says: 'It's a hAAAndAAAAAHHH'.
I'll do like Jack Benny, turn my head to the audience and blankly look, then I'll say,...
'It's not just a hAAAAAndAAAAAHHH, it's a GoldWing. (nothing else needs to be said) ;)
