I would leave well enough alone. I know guys that have spent enough $$ in upgrades to buy an s&s.

Cams, big bore kit, heads, you will open a big can of worms of where to stop. After you dump a few grand into the engine can your tranny hold up? Starter hold up? Battery? Clutch? The list goes on.

96" is plenty. Just do the exhaust, intake and adjust the ecu with a power commander or fuelpak. That's what I did and it's almost as nice is my buddy who spent 5k on his Twinkie.

If you are not happy and want major upgrades pull the motor and replace it with something better.

you make a very good point here socal, I get a laugh when I see stuff for sale stating racing this or racing that. You could put THOUSANDS of dollars into a motor and the first Hyabusa that you come up on? He's gonna dust you soooo bad you're gonna feel like a complete idiot. HD's just are not built for speed, they'll outlast any pos asian bike but they're more of a tank than a rocket.

Did a stroker kit on one for a buddy of mine, I suggested installing compression releases because he does allot of bar hopping, he didn't do it, after several jackshafts and ring gears he now has compression releases.

Well I have my chopper with a 127" motor so getting off it and jumping on the 96" street glide feels like night and day so I figured I would see what could be done to the 96" to get a few more ponies...but looks like I'll stick with what I got...
Thanks

Cams will make that thing come alive and are still easy on the motor as far as reliability etc. I use the S&S 510's on the Twin cams and they make killer power. Here is a link to the package we use in the shop. There is a dyno sheet from a bike that has only a high flow air cleaner, D&D two into one exhaust with a TTS mastertune tuner (the original maker of the SERT) It made 89.5 rwhp and 101.5 ft lbs of torque.

That's a really nice torque curve on that setup John. Is it still nice and rideable at light throttle cruising speeds?

Yes they are pretty docile nice set up. I do that cam in the new 103's and they have been coming in around 95 rwhp and 107 ft lbs of torque. the power comes on so quick I have a customer who has a 103 we built from his 96 with heads and it makes 113rwhp. We put the 510's in his wife's stock 103 and he won't give her bike back to her!

Yeah - of course John's right - factory bikes cams are about
economy and emissions.
