You don't want that engine.


But I'll tell you what...


I have a nice 80" with about 1400 miles on it.



You send me that 127 boat anchor, and I'll let you have the 80".


Now that's a bargain!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!

If you don't like the 127, you can always buy a Bad Dog 215 cubic inch (3500 cc's). It's got a 6" bore x 4" stroke and best of all, it's only 40 grand including the fuel management system. Oh yeah, it won't fit in a normal frame so you'll need their custom frame and six speed.

Here's a link to the Kneeslider article.

It's a unit construction, so the six speed comes with it. For 40 grand, you get a motor, six speed transmission, primary drive, fuel injection, ignition, engine management system with software, sensors, charging system, external oil pump and starter.

It's pretty big, here's the comparison:

Shit since it comes with all that I will take 2...... When its forty grand I guess its a fuel management system not a carb or fuel injection. It sure is one hell of a nice motor either way

Shit..... Sorry I forgot the original question I have a Ultima 127 in my bike with about 2000 miles and it runs great no problems. To be honest I would be more worried about the Accessories Unlimited tranny than the motor especially with the HP the 127 puts out.

I only have 2000 mile so I dont know for sure. I would say no though the warranty is less than the smaller CI motors also its just a higher performance motor so more performance less reliability. When I bought mine it really came down to money for about $ 400.00 more I could go from a 100" CI to a 127" CI it just seamed like such a small amount of money to go from a quick motor to a shit hang motor. Plus my riding back round was street bikes so I like to go fast.....

I am sure I will loose some reliability but the truth is this isn't my daily driver so I want to have some fun.

I have one and have run it for two seasons with no problems, but no big inch, high compression engine with a high lift cam is as reliable as a stock Harley or smaller aftermarket engine. If you break it in right, change the oil regularly, have it properly tuned and set up, and don't beat the shit out of it, it should be OK though.

Just get one of these. There have been numerous complaints from a member here about Ultimas, wont mention any names but he says stuff keeps falling off of his.
