Rob, the 259E cam likes more compression than comes in the kit.  So if you ran a thinner head gasket, or changed to higher compression piston, about 10.75 to 1 is what that cam likes.

Thanks Dave. I’d like to keep the bike as smooth as possible. How harsh would this setup be?

I had a 10.8 compression set up with the 259E cam in my 13 CVO King.  I rode it to Key west.  Also rode it to lake superior and the apostle islands.  Bike was very smooth, smoother than stock and easier to ride then stock.

That bike is now in this build threads.  I'm at 11.4 compression, 138.5 HP and 140 Torque.  I can ride it any where east of the Mississippi.  It really needs 92/93 octane.  That said it is the easiest to ride Harley I have ever had.  Power every where over 100 torque at 2300 rpm and over 120 at 2700 rpm.  Very smooth linear throttle. 

Its all about matching cam, and compression with a very good tune.

Sounds great. What about heat? Being in Florida that is a factor as well. I’m seeing mixed reviews about the heat on this 117 build.

I hear you on heat being in FL.  The bike does not seem to run any hotter than it did stock.  I think it may be a tad bit cooler, but not much.  Your's would be cooler than mine I believe do to the water cooled heads.

Rob, I have the identical build as Dave and our builds do run cooler. While I was in Daytona for Biketoberfest I was on a ride with a group guys. It was an 80+ degree day. We were in stop and go traffic for about 10 minutes before stopping for lunch. One of the guys had a temperature gun. He checked his bike 103, my 117 and a friends 110. His head temp was 310, mine was 250 and the 110 was 300.

Rob, hope your 2017 is an awesome bike as I remember following you way back on your 2007. I still have mine. Just couldn't trade up, still to many issues for me. I wish you the best on yours.

Joined the club with the 117 kit and S&S premium lifters.

Now I just need to get a second look at the tune.  Decent numbers to start, just need to fix the flat spot at 2500

Nice numbers, CVCVORG.  :2vrolijk_21: Assuming you used all the parts from the kit except the lifters. What other mods do you have? Pipes?
