117 Build
« on: January 01, 2018, 08:40:15 AM »

Getting ready to start my 117 build.

Build details:
117 HD Cylinders
Pro Street Porting and valved by Don at HD Street Performance
11:1 compression
Pistons - Diamond Racing w/ 7cc domes
S&S Piston Jet Oilers
T-Man 590 Cams
SE adjustable push rods
S&S Premium Lifters
Thayer 3 stage oil pump
Billet cam plate with 42lb spring
S & S Crankshaft
New HD lefty bearings
Alto Carbonite clutch plate kit
AIM VP-SDR
T-Mann No Loss Air Cleaner
Chrome Inner Primary

I plan on dyno tuning with both a complete Fulsac system with 1.75 baffles and a D&D Boarzilla.

New cylinders and spare heads I bought I had done by HD Street Performance (Don) have been painted Pearl Black. I thought I would try my hand at fin cutting (attached picture), heads are done, still need to do the cylinders. - Update - Cylinders are now cut.
Not perfect but I thought came out pretty good.

Will be painting the rest of the motor Pear Black when disassembled.

Agree.
Diamond Heads has a patent on that. They hurt a lot of people doing that for money.  >:(

Yep, they have a BS patent based on a false and unverified claim of heat reduction that did hurt at least two others that were making a meek living from offering this service. They can't stop me from doing my own though.

Getting ready to start my 117 build.

Will add more details later.

New cylinders and spare heads that I had done by HD Street Performance (Don) have been painted Pearl Black. I thought I would try my hand at fin cutting (attached picture), heads are done, still need to do the cylinders.
Not perfect but I thought came out pretty good.

Will be painting the rest of the motor Pear Black when disassembled. Will be adding a chrome
inner.
Mr. Warlock, I live up the road in Elon area and was contemplating doing the 117 to mine. Are you doing the work or someone you know?

The diamond cut looks great and was thinking about doing the same to mine although I am not sure how good it would look on the granite

care to share any tips on how you did the diamond cut yourself

Good luck on the build, I will follow it

Update......

Finally able to get back at this. Motor and tranny both out of the bike. Motor completely disassembled, next to press out main and cam bearings, install new and then do the black pearl painting.

Updated with the building specs on original post.

Just for info, the compensator has close to zero signs of wear.
Chain tensioner has some wear but nothing to worry about.
Pistons and valves are caked up with carbon pretty good but show good condition.
Crank was at .003 run out and all bearings seem right.
I had one lazy lifter prior to taking apart but in addition to that I can see the beginning stages of rollers finish starting to give away.

Anyone heard of HD lefty bearing retainer failures?

Just had my 117 done from the ground up and builder refuses to use HD lefty bearing retainers as the little screws can vibrate loose and let everything walk so they use a complete sleeve setup.
Said it happened twice to them before switching to the in house solution.

Glad to see you have got all your diamond cutting done. You have way more patience than I could ever have. Good luck as the rest goes together. Waiting to hear how it turns out

How did it turn out? I just did a very similar build but am at 10.7 to 1 compression. Same cam, head and valve work done by suburban speed. I’m going to have it retuned, but so far it’s at 124HP and 133TQ.

Anyone had any experience with the Screamin Eagle 117 bolt on kit 9500054 for the 110 CVO motor?
