Red Wings, are you referring to the Ultima 127 when you say stroke an engine? Since I am new to Ultima could you elaberate for us? A stroked engine means modified from it's original, like installing a stroker crank. Is the 127 a factory built mold or modified from some other size engine like the 120?...... Knowledge is power!

1. 127 CI

2. First time I had issues it was around 2000 miles. I thought it was an issue cause by the original builder where he left the bike fall on the front oulley and it wouldn't stop leaking oil from the crank. Come to find out the crank pin was slightly bent so it would continue to stretch out the seal.

Second time I have had issues is right now at 430 miles on a freshly rebuild motor from Mid West. It's the exact same issue I had prior to the rebuild. Oil continues to leak from the front pulley out of the crank seal. They sent me all the old parts back to ensured of the rebuild. Hopefully they will honor their 6 month 6k mile warranty.

3. Stock

4. Me personally I would have rather fork out extra money for an S&S its spent more time in shops than on the road.

Do you think it could be the crankcase pressure issue? I had the same thing, until I vented the crankcase, and others here too, Worth looking into.

In 1999 I built a pro-street bike and put in a 96" S&S. At 110k I had to put in head gaskets and the valves looked good. At 180k I rebuilt the heads and the motor still had great compression. At 210k The front head gasket started leaking and I sold it to my buddy.

He's still riding it so for the $$ I'll go with S&S.

Thumbs up from me

I picked a 100"...two reasons...1} easy upgrade to 107 when and if needed 2} Same stroke as factory Evo, which helps longevity due to design criterias. I have over 80,000 miles on it and my only problem has been losing a lifter and having to deal with replacing the damaged parts, which included the cam. But I have no one to blame but me. 5/8 of an inch lift 1600 per minute for God knows how many hours some days ( I have had the motor 4 years ) it had been recommended by many to change lifters at 30 to 35,000 miles regardless of what I felt was going on.....NAW I said...they should go longer with ease. OK...that happened at 41,ooo, and I recently changed them again just because. The factory lifters ( Meaning Ultima ) are made by the same people that made the Evo lifters for H.D., and they are very reasonably priced.

Lucky you...I bought 96" S&S ...broke it in according to their rules, without ever exceeding the recommendations. At 34,00o the motor was wore out. Oh yeah, it still ran, but it was wore out... My 100" Ultima has over 80,000 on it and going strong. I ( for the record ) don't do burnouts or wheelstands...I like to get max miles from my motors...being retired and spending much time on the highways of this great country of ours. My next motor, should I live that long, will without a doubt be another Ultima.

I have an Ultima 127 I bought way back in 2005. I have had the cylinders off because the base gasket leaked bad from loose cylinder bolts. No problems other than that. Would I take this from the East Coast to the Left Coast? Maybe, but would have a chase truck....Performance means broken parts eventually!
