Need a good quality frame and rear driveline,1" (2000-up) rear wheel/axle,and especially good brakes.This big of a power planet is a whole different ball game,and requires top shelf components that will hold up.

Just understand that this thing is going to rattle anything and everything loose on your bike.

I have the exact same setup of all 3 parts, except my motor is the 120ci... I go through bulbs like crazy, so replace those with LED's. All sorts of bolts, nuts, and other shit have been rattled loose, so loctite the shit out of everything and check them continously if you don't want to be stranded on the side of the road.

As well, you MUST MUST MUST break this motor in correctly to standard specs (Don't go getting it dynoed the first couple months of it's life). If you don't break this motor in correctly, you'll end up with leaky heads and a lower life on the motor. Just to set your expectations in the right realm, this motor is going to last you around 30k miles and then you'll need to do some work on it and quite possibly rebuild the thing.

All that said... there is nothing like have 125+ hp right under your nuts and gassing the throttle... makes you feel like a real man. My 120ci was dynoed to 125 hp, so yours should be a bit above that. Also, I have a higher compression on my motor... It will run with 91 octane gas, but it does sputter now and then. When I run 101 octone, it drinks that shit like koolaid and runs like a kid who just dranke a whole piture of it.

Hope this helps... let me know if you have any other questions.

Also... I just read you're running a belt secondary drive... You need to change that immediately to chain... Just my opinion though...

No dis-respect intended but your kinda puttin the cart before the horse aren't ya? I mean.....ya already got the driveline so any bad stuff is moot

use a well made frame....watch the bearings in the Ultima tranny (I know guys who have had problems with em) like the other guys said...use a chain and have fun

I also have this same set up and realizing that I too have to switch to a chain drive. I believe the best option for me is to "keep it simple" considering I am just a modest gear head. I did not spend the $ on a belt but I did buy a pulley brake combo, (spokster) that I will have to try and get ride of before I switch over to chain. Besides that, I have everything and ready to finish!

I wont comment on the experience(s) needed-nor the will ,willpower,expertise(minus the beginners luck or snags that might-or WILL Occur) or quest for knowledge that you want because you have Heart & an Interest in a field that is very *cool* and I applaud you for taking the plunge .

The 120 is the square engine so its a lot smoother, or should be then the 127" I'd take all this advice and hold on

and +10 on the chain

127 Ultima

I have a 127 and have beating the hell out of it for three years without any problems. I have raised the CR to 12.1, .700 lift cam, bored and T-jetted S&S G, ported heads etc... Also using 2" Cycle Shacks w/o baffles--yes it is loud as hell when you get on it. As mentioned above be sure to use a high grade chain--forget the belt. There is absolutely nothing like this combo and is an absolute blast to ride. Good luck and DO NOT underestimate this engine!!!!
