I live in Dubai and have not seen the article which I believe is in American Iron. I am really interested in hearing what others say about the 110 engines.....am nervous about putting out that much money for a dog!
I am a long distance solo rider and need a machine I can depend on. This past summer I did all 49 states in one ride (24K miles solo). Check out my blog... http://cruisingforthecure.blogspot.com
I would really appreciate hearing more dialogue about the 110 and have someone post a picture of a 2009 Black Ice/Blue Ice conventional Ultra.
Thanks in advance.
All I can complain about is at 115 mph with me the misses both bags packed and a back pack she was toten and an almost head wind cuttin across from Denio Jct west bound the rpm's climbed, but my speed didn't. I'm fixin to hop it up cause my 103 bro is gunnin for me.
I really am thinking seriously about buying a 2009 CVO Ultra or a regular 2009 Ultra in the Black Ice/Blue Ice color. I have a couple of questions:
1. I am starting to hear horror stories about the 110 engine.....True or not? Do you like the bike? Would you buy another 2009 CVO?
2. Does anyone out there have a 2009 Ultra in Black Ice/Blue Ice that they could post a picture. The on line catalogue makes the color look blue on blue and not very good. A guy who saw one said it was super.
I need your help and input on both of the above,
I have the 09 Ultra Classic in the color that you are asking about, I am new to this site , actually only registered to answer you question. I have uploaded some pictures, if I did it correctly. The color is awsome, almost everytime I stop somewhere people comment on it and usually ask who done the paint job, not realizing that it is custom from the factory. Out in the sunlight it is different than in ths showroom, there appear to be a purple tint on it but that is the way it looks, you make one step and it changes.You are right about the bike looking like blue on blue even my pictures look that way, but when you actually stand by the bike the black really stands out.
I too am wondering about the 11o engine, I have 2 buddies that had it done last year one has 19k on it with no problems. I had the stage one kit done on mine but after riding theirs mine is going in next week for the 110 upgrade. The dealer is warranting the work so what have you got to lose.
Hope this was helpfull, and the pictures are attached
|This could be due to the fact that Harley uses the same piston cylinders for the 110's as they do for all the other displacement twin cam's, just a larger internal bore.|

you have hit most of the common problems of the 110. nice write up. I disagree with the quoted statement as the clys are not the same as the other displacement twin cams. in fact they are not capable of being bolted to any thing other than the 110 cases because of there spigot dia and o -ring grove. but the loose liners are a very common problem.
If you are serious about getting a good tune. Bob and Ron are ones to see in your area.
the true duals don't do anything except move the area that the heat is in around ...what the key is ....the tune. when guys make the claim that true duals cooled there motor down what actually happened is the motor got tuned when the 2-2 pipes were added. the biggest mod you can do is swap cams for one with some more overlap to aid in cooling the motor. the 255's in the 110's help some over what stock 96 cams do. but with the added displacement ,compression, of the 110 the 255's don't have near enough overlap (holding the in and ex valve open at the same time) to properly cool the motor.
a good 2-1 pipe, swap the cams, and a good tune will make all the diff in the heat of the motor.
Edit I see that was a year old post also.... hell I thought it was 12/27/09.....duh! never mind
