Default What am I missing?? 117 build

Hey all. Getting ready to complete my install and wanted to lean on the experience here to help me see what I have overlooked.

Bike started out as a 2014 Road King. Love this bike. Decided to convert it to a Street Glide when I found a screaming deal at an insurance auction. Frame was cracked and bent so they totaled it out. Everything else was 100%.
4015 miles on the bike. So I stripped all the good stuff and am selling whatever's left that I don't need.

Had the plastics and tank painted to match. Ran the FLHX wiring harness and began building the motor. Am going to swap the front end and bolt up the ABS pump and module. Touchscreen radio connected to the Wild Boar SG audio system already installed.

What I've done so far:
S&S 117 big bore kit
Darkhorse bottom end including:
  • Upgrade all bearings - Balance/Blueprint lower end and assemble complete
  • 4.375" stroke flywheel set 07-later
  • Centerless ground 1.6710" 2-hole crankpin
  • Darkhorse Rod-roller bearing Set .2164"
  • TC Competition H-beam Connecting Rod Set
  • Balance new crankshaft assembly
  • Darkhorse pro-plug
  • Weld crankpin
  • Race,Inr,R Main Brg,Pkgd,
  • Pinion Clip
  • Man O' War 4-3/8" Crankshaft
  • Assemble *Balanced & Bleprinted with Competition Rod
  • TWIN CAM TIMKEN BEARING CONVERSION UPGRADE A -MODEL
  • Case boring to 4.322" x 1.545" with step to 4.162 x 2.250"
  • HBR Main Timken Bearing
  • Bearing Roller
  • DH SPROCKET SHAFT SPACER
  • Motor Sprocket Shaft Seal
  • JET PISTON ASSY WITH O-RING
  • Cam Bearing 06 Dyna, 07-08BT
  • THRU-BOLT KIT TC BIG BORE CASES
  • Bearing Retaining Plate Screw

Revolution Performance Monster head package:
  • CNC port work
  • CNC valve job with guides and intake seats
  • New 2.000" intake valves
  • New 1.630" exhaust valves
  • New .675 max lift springs
  • New valve guide seals
  • TP Engineering Roller Rockers
S&S Gear Drive Cam kit with Andrews 67HG's
Feuling roller tappets
S&S adjustable pushrods
Evolution Industries compensator eliminator
Baker 1.5" oil pan
Baker Primary Chain Tensioner
Throttle Hog 58mm throttle body
Fueling 5.3 g/s injectors

Go with S&S tappets instead of Fueling for obvious reasons.

You mentioned "port work".........
But that means nothing without at least some pics
RINGS ,Piston Rings!
Spend the money on low drag rings.It is the best money you can spend.
A lot of shops overlook this little trick.
Why OH why push and pull 30 lbs when you can do the same numbers with 9 to 12 lbs?
why turn it all into heat /friction?

AND
the BIG one How is this bike to be proposed?
The longer haul or all that you can reasonably get which means shorter lived valve related stuff.
Are the guides cut trimmed?
Guide bosses have a nice boat to them??
It is all a slippery slope and it looks like you have a good handle on it all.

I will add, make sure you have a REAL Turner (TTS, PV, JMHO in that order) a REAL Dyno Tune and sum thing to wipe that chit eating grin of your face!

***Warning- Good luck, been 3 years and I still can't find anything to wipe the grin of my face!

I had planned to use Techno Research perform a wide band o2 tune on it. Then off to Nitro's in Pasadena for runs on the treadmill. I believe they also are a technoresearch shop.

we installed the S&S rings that came with the 117 cylinder kit. Honestly didn't think about upgrading them. I will call Revolution Performance today and inquire about the guide bosses, I would assume, but then again.... Excellent point, and one I didn't think to double check.

bike is my daily "driver". Only car I own is a 1963 DeVille Convertible that gets driven for the pure pleasure of it. Lots of long trips across country and into Canada.

I'd add an oil cooler if you don't already have one.

motor is already assembled but they are easily changed. Why you recommend the S&S tappets over Fueling?
