I'm happy with what I have and I busted my *** to get what I have. I think I'm out of my league here. I just wanted my 124" and enjoy it. Of course there are MANY other people with more power and more money to throw at being the top dog. I'm not into that anymore. I have exactly what I set out to achieve and I'm happy with it. Later.

Congrats on finishing the build. Big motors are fun no matter the peak numbers so no need to ever consider chasing the ultimate dyno sheet, waste of time and money. And trust me there’s all kinds of bs dyno “non sense” at play out there, I’ll just leave it at that.

You don't put a race car engine in a school bus.

I agree,when building a motor,build it for YOUR riding style,not others.we do a lot of 124" builds,from very mild touring motors to very aggressive builds.one thing we don't do is try to push anything on anybody,its built to the way they want it.my personal bike is a 2002 RG with a VERY mild 124",131/142,with 2 nitro bikes & the shop to run,i want a fun bike to ride & tour on,but don't want to be messing with it all the time.have fun with the new build!!
