  • Anyone Rocking a 120ci stage 3 bike?

    Down the road from me (about 3 hours away), a company builds various quality v twin bike engines. Got me thinking about what if... I could buy one. Always wondered how much pulling power a 120ci bike such as a HD Fatboy would provide. I am not in any position to get one, but sounds like a fistful of fun to bomb around on. Especially passing on the highway or doing the odd holeshot for chuckles and giggles. When I had the 108ci Road Star, the extra grunt was nice to have. Never road a 120ci bike and wonder if is all that and then some.

    Anyone ever ride such a unit? The guys getting the 116ci Indians seem to like the torque. I figure a 120ci stage 3 bike would be nice to ride.

    I haven't rode one but I agree would be fun. But why not get a Strat or Raider and get the motor done up from Patrick Racing? I believe that would get you the 120 ci and probably less $$$ and more reliable than an HD.

      Why not just try out a ZX-14 or a Hayabusa? Much cheaper and would probably blow the doors off any 120ci bike you could ever make...

        The biggest I have seen was a 160 cube vtwin. Was supposed to be a "9 sec Harley"....it ran 11's. Get a 2nd Gen vmax for $7-12k and go kill any vtwin motorcycle you can find. Or...go buy a $5k used busa/zx-10, 11, 12, 14....or a gsxr 1000....or any sport bike ever made really and go gast AND handle AND brake AND be stable at 150+ mph.....

          I rode a Yamaha Raider 2 summers ago and near pulled the arms off of me. Wicked power from that engine. To me that would be money well spent.

            What is the biggest big bore kit for 1700 RS?

              I beleave it's the 110ci kit.
              With enough money, you could build just about anything. I'm running the 98ci on both my RSs and still find they're a lot of power for me. I have a 108ci motor sitting on my bench, and will be putting it in one of my bikes after I have problems with one. It may be a long time for that to happen.

                I briefly browsed through Patrick performance. I thought it was a 108 kit for 1700 and a 110 for 1600 but I may have looked it incorrectly

                  The closest I've been is a factory Harley 117 Lowrider with a stage 4 kit and it surprised the hell out of me. Keep in mind, it weighs a lot less than an Indian 116. I've ridden an Indian and it was only slightly more torquey than my R*. The Low rider was not like any other Harley I've ridden and I was literally too nervous to go WOT. Granted, it was only a 20 min test ride, and I'm sure in time I'd get more comfortable with it, but if it's any indication I'm sure the 120ci would get the old ticker up a few digits.

                  But like it's been said, you can get the same [or greater] sensation for a few grand. Even my old R6 [yes, a lowly 600ccs] could snap your head back and hit 150 without breaking a sweat. You can pick up similar 1000+cc used bikes for under $5000 all day long. I can't imagine what a Hyabusa would be like. You could even slap on a turbo for not much $$ and have a 200+hp monster to convey you that much quicker to your expiration date. Speed is surprisingly cheap if it doesn't have to come in a V-Twin.

                    A turbo Hayabusa is on my bucket list to ride. Not necessarily to own. Just to ride. And they easily make 300hp (probably more). Can you imagine something that weighs 600ish lbs with 300hp. Ha ha. Makes me giddy like a school girl...

                    Actually, no, I can't imagine. My race car made 350hp, it weighed 2000 lbs more, and it was *fast*. 300hp on 600ish lbs is insane. Maybe on a massive airstrip or something.

                  Hyabusa maybe quicker but I don’t feel like looking like a dog humping a football haha I’ll stick with my big vtwins

                    Ha! they are ugly "...Dog humping a football", surprisingly accurate.
