Revtech 110 is a very smooth engine. Ultima's are brutes. I have a Revtech 110 and an Ultima 120 (had an Ultima 127). The Ultimas are like bucking broncos for the first 500 miles, then run like apes. The 127 had the absolute best throaty sound with Martin Bros pipes. Performance Ultima, cruise and smooth - Revtech.

My Revvy 100 would not hold a candle to a 120 ultima, speaking from exp, but its been a good motor all the same with 8000 milkometers on it.

What type of motor you buy should depend on what type of riding you do,if you ride in traffic alot in hot weather then bigger is not better.........if you like to race other guys and are into burn outs then go bigger.....I put a 110 Revtech in mine and that has as much power as the other brands,and they do run smooth... as far selling points go, are you building it for you or sombody else .............

Lol I knew ur were gonna bite on that one, racers always do! Yes there are alot of variables the 120 doesn't make much more power than the 113, I would put my money on the rider that in my opinion is the main variable in determining the winner

sorta on topic, sorta not, but I have a question...
I have been considering building a new bike from scratch and have been researching Ultima engines, I have heard (locally) of a couple issues, well same issue, 2 different Ultima engines, but on here everyone talks about how good they are
So my question is this.....how many people here actually ride their bikes with Ultima engines?
I keep reading stuff like "I have 2000 miles on mine" or "after 3 years and 4000 miles mine seems ok" etc, etc, etc
My bikes get an average of 9500 to 11500 miles per year, does anyone with an Ultima made engine put that kind of milage on their bikes?

I have a Revtech 88 in my hardtail. I don't like the fat look of a big motor, so 88 inches it is. I have 2000 trouble free miles on mine, but a buddy of mine with an 89 FLH has a Revtech 88 that just turned 40K with no issues. I will say this to you, the bigger you go(size and HP) the shorter the engine life(in general). If you run allot of highway miles(and it sounds like you do) you want to gear your bike so it's not screaming and it is revving within the workable range of the cam(i.e. a cam that comes on at 4000 RPM's will be useless to you).

lots of em are choppers and not daily riders.

I think a better question would be what's the resale value when comparing Revtech\Ultima to HD or S&S? If the Ultima or RT is 2-3K less then say an S&S, is that chop going to bring that same 2-3K back in resale? I don't see that happening these days.

That's interesting on the ignition. I'm guessing yours was a fluke because that ignition comes from Dynatek. Its a Dyna 2000I ignition with a different label. Dyna has a pretty good name.
