Can you share what size bit you used for cutting the heads and cylinders?

Did you strip the powder coating or just paint over it? Getting ready to do the same thing here, not sure which route I am going to go on the finish of the motor yet. Looks really good, nice job! :2vrolijk_21:

First post here:
Been riding for a few years on a hand-me-down sportster but Ive been looking at big bikes since the first of march. The pro streets have my attention and have been looking and pricing around since. Local dealer has a 2016 white 420 miles asking $19,995 asked what they will go down to and immediately dropped $1k off the price; left it at that and kept looking. Few weeks go by and a 16 black pops up with the 117ci kit installed 3800 miles for $23k. Dealer with the 117ci kit said no warranty on motor, other has warranty. Assuming I could get the bike with the 117ci kit for less than asking would it be worth the risk for the upgraded engine? thanks

Jordan, I would ask if they have any records on the engine - who did what and what was done. That is a starting point and really a personal choice.

You might get better responses if you ask this on a different thread. Best of luck and welcome

A few pics of the build, I really like the chrome against the Black Pearl.

Very nice build. Been wondering how the 590's would work in the 117. Looks like they worked out well. Your work on the jugs and heads really makes that motor shine. You should be very proud of your work.  :2vrolijk_21:

Great job. It is a pleasure to work with an owner that has good attention to details and goes all the way to the end with a good tune to assure the best result and a motor that will live.

Really nice torque curve.  I like it when torque comes on nice and early like that and carries a long way.  Brandon has tuned my last two bikes, my built 13 CVO King, a 117 build and my 18 CVO Road Glide.

I am at the point where I am planning my 117 build.  It will be the SE kit with just the jobs and pistons.  I've talked to Tman and he is suggesting the 625PS.   I'm curious how you decided to go with the 590?

The cam choice is tied to the head characteristics and compression plus the ultimate goal. The pipe plays very importantly in this choice. If Tman suggests a 625 for you its does not make it a good fit for all other 117" builds unless the mating hardware matches and the combination will help you reach your goal. The 590 is a productive cam in this combination, not always the smoothest at the lowest of speeds. The 625 would be smoother but make less power and work in the ~10.5 compression area. Tman has cams that can go up from the 590 and generally the higher the HP level and compression the lowest speed manors get a little snotty. This does not always reflect in a dyno curve which is not like realistic street riding. Full throttle in high gear, 2000ish rpm to redline. I am currently using some other cams that have wider LSA angles and they provide a little more overall smoothness without a loss of any power or torque plus they are very valve train friendly.
