    • CVO1: 2013 SERG

Want a stock replacement that is similar in performance but easier on valve train, use the tts100. Personally I chose an Andrews 54h. Little different, not sexy but it works, is quiet, and easy on parts. I did no porting or changes to the heads other than springs (conical) seals and changed the lifters to hylift b-2313se
Any cam change then forces a retune.

Thank you! Exactly the information I was seeking. My wife is happy (for now) with the performance of her stock engine, so I am just looking at trying to maintain it close to that performance level while addressing some of the well known issues.


I have the same set of lifters waiting to go into my bike. I have 17K on mine and am very gun shy at this point. Going 117 on mine and heads should be in the mail back to me either today or tomorrow. I am ready to get that together but planned trip will delay me for about month.

So now the ESP wants to consider the price of a new motor instead of rebuild or long block.   Local Harley is saying that the part number for the 110 engine is valid, but the product is no longer available.  WTF?   Can't buy a complete engine from the MOCO?  Surprising.

can you take a pay out for the price of the now no longer available motor and then just buy and S&S?

I think they will do a payout and I will be able to do whatever I choose.  If the full motor isn't available, I don't think they can base they payout on something that can't be purchased, but that is yet to be determined.

While I know the S&S would be a great engine, I think it would hurt the value of the CVO if I were to go that route.

Most likely the long block route will make the most sense.  This would eliminate any possible metal contamination in the engine with little downside, except for my plans to upgrade it to a 117 at this time.   I would still do S&S lifters and upgraded SE cam plate/oil pump.   Maybe rocker locker/stoppers as well.   Still need to make a cam choice that will work with both the 110 and future 117 plans.

The long block is still available as best I can tell, so that would be what the ESP should do.  Yes, they would have to pay the dealership to transfer heads, throttle body, and various other covers and bits, but it would still be much better than having the average dealership build an engine from scratch.  You could always have the heads freshened up by a good shop during the process.

I've never seen anyone who swapped out the Harley engine for an S&S come back later and tell us if it actually affected resale value.  I'd be interested in hearing such information if anyone has any to share.  Considering the fact that CVO's no longer hold value any better than any other model, I think I'd go with the best alternative for myself and not worry about what it may or may not do to resale value.  People who follow the trials and tribulations of Harley engines may actually pay more for a bike with the S&S.

Find a builder with an impeccable reputation, and build you a Motor.  Harley 110's are junk.  Some of them more so than others.  They'll run up to 95, or 100 MPH pretty quick, and then take 10 more minutes to get to 110-115 MPH, WFO.  No compression.  Compression is HP.  No compression, no HP.  There endeth the lesson.  Later--HUBBARD

For those following the story...

Looks like the Long Block will be approved in the next day or two.  When this happens, I will credit the ESP company for doing the right thing.

So, I don't believe I'll do the 117 kit at this time.  The long block does come with virtually everything internal, including the heads, rockers, pushrods, lifters.   From what I'm told, it does not come with the cam plate, cam or oil pump. 

Should like the SE cam plate and pump will be my choice.  S&S Premium non-limited lifers and pushrods will by on my nickel as they already include the SE parts for that.  Cam will be a credit that I can use for any cam, so that is still the big question.  Best cam for basically (except stage 1) stock motor, riden two up most of the time, BUT could work really well with the 117 kit at a later date.  I wonder if there is a cam that would cover both scenarios.   Originally I was planning on the Tman 620PS, but now without the 117 kit, I'm not sure that works.  SE585 or something similar may best.  I understand the SE cam that comes with the 117 kit needs more compression to really work well, so that probably isn't the cam I'm looking for.

Well if all goes well, I may have my bike back in 3 weeks!

Neither.  Being done at a local Indy here in my area.  They have been great to work with so far and very professional.  Will post my comments regarding this shop when job is completed.
