I still want a road glide, the 103ci is an amazing engine. I'd love to ride a SE with the 110ci.
personally, i wouldn´t buy a twin cam harley. the cam design is pants. S&S do a gear drive conversion, but that´s how it should have been in the first place
the heat levels are too high. they run a higher oil pressure through smaller journals, and combined with the increasing emissions regs they run hot. the tc88 ran hot, the tc96 ran bloody hot, the tc103 is a sodding microwave on wheels! i´ve yet to ride a 110, but if i did it´d be on a cold day.
IMO, they´re pushing the envelope of the tc engine too far. from 88cu/i to 110 cu/i using the same basic design is not a smart idea for a production engine we´re talking a 20% increase in capacity over the original design. yes, you can big bore engines and have them running reliably, but on a mass production engine i´d have doubts. combine this with the falling quality control, and i would not want to buy one.
if i was looking to buy a harley, it´d be an evo from between `95 - `98. it was a great period for those engines. they were born 80cu/i and finished as 80cu/i. they were a nice flexible reliable engine that simply by freeing up the breathing have enough stomp to be really good fun. a design that harleys kept as it was without farting about to the whims of fashion, and proved to be good. the roadie is effectively what harleys should have built instead of the twin cam.
if there was a cheap low milage evo dyna
for sale near me, i´d be more than tempted as a second bike. cracking engines.
