    Just had my cams installed, V&H Power Duals  fitted up to the Two Brothers Racing mufflers, SERT in and heavy breather fitted. Won't be tuned until tomorrow.
    Keep you informed, but we all know what the outcome will be.

    Just picked the RoadKing up from Bikeworks, and all I can say is I love this thing now.
    The cams/headers/SERT/and intake mods have woken it up, and gave me back the thump and sound I was looking for.

    101RWHP, and 113 Ft lbs was the end result, right in the rev range where I want it, overtaking speeds.

    Whilst it was in there, I added a internal wire kit for the bars, smooth fuel filler and gauge, and a set of CVO hand grips.
    Roll on the road trip.

    Agree with all you've said, Lofty. The power duals and pissing off of the cat make a huge difference to sound and breathing . Really nice useable power in an area where it's been found wanting on mine. The RK is looking schmick! All you need now is a sprung seat to cushion those ribs, mate. Keep your eyes peeled for pot holes on your run.

    Hey Loftybob, I noticed in your upcoming upgrades to your Roadking you mentioned putting 2 brothers racing mufflers on with the other gear - I believe you had the 4" Rineharts before- are you changing for a different sound or performance? Just curious, because I was swaying towards the 4" Rineharts for my SGS but haven't heard anything but the Screaming Eagles yet which I wasn't keen on.

    Performance - here is my dyno sheet....

     Thanks OzDan, that's the problem though mate, I've only heard sound clips so far or S/E slip on's. Does sound good though.

    Here is a sound byte of my bike. 4 inch Rineharts and I also have Bassani headers......pulled 97/109 on the Morgan & Wacker dyno, goes great!

     Went with the TBR's, because they are on the bike already

     Thanks Lofty, I think I saw a piccy of your bike before and just thought the pipes were Rineharts with the black end caps - my bad.

    Your bike is looking pretty sharp with those bars and new headers, impressive results from the upgrade - enjoy.

    Well I pulled the trigger on Saturday , added this latest beast to the collection ... 2017 Road Glide Special ... To go with my 99 Springer , heavily Customized plus my 08 Softail that also has its fair share of extra goodies .

    This gorgeous thing ... In my opinion of course ... Has as you can see the Chrome Turbine Wheels , Detachable sissy bar and carry rack ... The 1.5 inch Burleigh Bars , not totally sold on them yet with my background with low wide bars but they were part of the deal and cost a ridiculous amount of money so wasn't about to give them back , Lol .

    It has the Stage 2 Stereo upgrade ... Again never had a bike with music and GPS so will be an interesting learning experience ... It has the Full House Stage 4 Screaming Eagle motor upgrade , supposedly making between 115 & 120 Hp and 110 to 115 ft pound torque ... Will see once she is run in , only has a couple of hundred K's on her .

    Was only built a week or so ago ... Rob , one of the owners from Gasoline was not real kean to sell her as it was going to be his private toy for a few weeks ... I saw it last week when it got rolled out , fell in Love , Missus said yeah baby , haggling was done and deal was done .

    Of course probably the most controversial / talking point are the pipes ... I reckon they are going to be a Love them or Loathe them subject but of course I Love them ... Freedom 2 into 1 Turnouts ... Unbelievably deep rumble ... Have a quite baffle on the way just in case officer plod takes offence ... Strangely up around 100 / 110 they don't sound loud at all , but down low with the exhaust bouncing off walls and so on they might attract some unwanted attention and I imagine when I get to crack open that throttle it will be a different story , Lol .

    Have a wrap round front guard to complete the look ... Won't be here and fitted until Wednesday and due to work commitments not picking her up until Friday ... Going to be a Bloody long week.

    Anyhow no doubt I will have a few questions to throw at the more experienced Toured riders out there so my apologies in advance for any stupid or novice questions to come ... Thanks for reading .

     Nice bike mate, if it were mine, I would add some stretched bags to fill in the void left behind by the removal of the mufflers.

    Very strange that a stage 4 motor would only put out the same torque as my stage 2 107 motor. Obviously built for HP

    Love the color, congrats on the purchase, and welcome to the bagger brigade


    Regards Lofty

    Lol ... Yeah Baloffski , I reckon I had to many Black Harleys ... Thanks for the compliment .

    Lofty ... Actual figures quoted were 120 Hp / 120 Torque but I like to understate these type of figures until I see them for myself ... Mind you both dealers up here in Sth East Qld say the 515 Cam is more of a in between Cam , not all Hp and not all Torque but suits the whole package going from 107 to 114 and bigger throttle body and of course C N C ported heads .

    I haven't even picked it up yet but have already thought same as you regarding bags , Lol ... It's what first attracted me to the Road King Special ... No doubt I will find something to spend my hard earned on .

    One of my new Bagger novice question ... The bike lifter / Jack I use on my Softail , can I use that on a Tourer ... Any restrictions under the Bike .

    The lifter I bought for my Fatboy was also used with my CVO Ultra, no problems at all with
    clearances.

    Used my lifter on my old Softy, Roadking and now the Streety no problems. Unless the M8 has something different it should be ok.
