Goin’ Big for More Power With H-D’s 110 Big Bore Kit
As the saying goes, either go big or go home. At least that’s the plan with our 2012 Road Glide Custom. We are going to transform this bad boy brawlin’ bagger into an undisputed world champion.
For starters, if you’re going to run with the big dogs, you better have big legs. While it is possible to push a lot of horsepower and torque out of a small engine, in the end, you just end up stressing parts to the eventual point of failure. And at the end of the day, there’s still no replacement for displacement. Cubic inches that is!
For the first installment we are tearing down the motor to its core in preparation for a Screamin’ Eagle 110 Stage I Kit. Keep in mind this job isn’t for the timid or mechanically un-skilled. Don’t expect to finish it all in a weekend drinking brewskis in your garage because you are going to need a shop to do some machine work. To make sure this was done correctly, we enlisted the help of the good folks over at the H-D fleet center. After all, if you’re going to perform open-heart surgery, you definitely want the skills of a surgeon. Like we mentioned before, our Screamin’ Eagle 110 Kit requires some machine work, so we’ll start with showing how break down the block and prep a motor for boring. HB
