We use them all the time, I like em alot!
The smallest one we use is the 100" best bang for your buck!
The 113" is kick ass!
In my bike and my brothers we have 127"s they pull like a freight train!

We use a ton of these motors. The 120" is one of the best motors Ultima has ever put out.

Polished 113, registered last Aug and over 3000 trouble free miles. Runs like a MFer. Purchased from Southern out of OK. Pre run, crane rockers and push rods amongst other non Ultima parts. I wouldn't hesitate to purchase from Southern.

100" started knocking with less than 300 miles. Sent it back to Ultima to be fixed. They rebuilt and updated to a 107". Again under 300 miles, the oil light comes on and starts knocking. Ultima's advice was to change to Valvoline oil which was flatout stupid bullshit. Drained the oil which was full of metal. Called Ultima requesting a refund, but they want to repair the motor again. NO WAY! They will receive a letter from my lawyer requesting a refund or I'll sue for the refund plus damages. I've had a TP in the past which gave me problems. My 107 S&S and my current 124" S&S were both upgraded by Kendall Johnson and have never given me any problems. I'd rather spend twice the value of the Ultima engine for my lawyer to screw their asses due to their piece of shit motor. I've ordered a S&S 96" for replacement.

I would have bought a 120, as that seemed like one of the best of the bunch, but that warrantee, IMHO is BS. 6 months? Come on guys...This was supposed to be your motor for people who want a lot of the power of a 127, but with more dependability, lower compression, square b/s etc....so a six month warrantee to back that up? make it 12 or 18 and maybe I'll believe you have some confidence in them.
Got an S&S 113 with IST and 3 years instead.
