Local HD dealer kept telling me to do the 95" big bore kit and would be the best money spent on the bike. Well, he was correct. I had already done V&H system, SERT, SEA/C and it ran very well with just that. The big bore and cams really brought it to life plus some "tricks" to the heads. We did some tuning on it with the SERT and it is cold here, but come Spring/Summer will readjust to normal riding weather and will dyno at that time as well. Should mention that the bike is '05 Dyna Super Glide Custom.
I have not had real opportunity to try it full throttle due to weather, but few times did take on to interstate for short runs, 2nd, 3rd, and 4th are quick. Final step for me is going to 2 into 1 V&H's which according to them is the best set up for performance. We will find out as soon as weather breaks!!

Do it. You'll be glad you did. If you're any kind of wrench at all, do it yourself

and save 2/3 the cost. I'd also consider a dealership re-flash enough tuner.

Previous threads I found

Big Bore kits?

95 Conversion Kit

Just my 2 cents I put 10:1 piston and had the heads worked on and installed SC 204 cams with a power 3 commander with true dual exhaust and the dyno is 87 hp and 93 pounds of torque and run AV gas all done for under $1,700.00 and I am very happy . I have a 05 RK 88" .If you look at the 95" in most cases you will not get them numbers for the cost .

Would highly recommend doing cams, any that have been suggested, with the 95" motor.

I studied more than a dozen charts in the 2005 Screaming Eagle catalog,

I didn't care to loose ANY mid-range or low end, so I could have a bit higher HP number

at RPMs that I don't spend much time at, and almost certainly those

are RPMs where somebody who usually rides 2 up doesn't spend much time

I get results about equal to that, within the variation from dyno to dyno,

and I don't think anybody else is going to get that much done for $1700

I run pump gas and get around 44-45 mpg commuting with Free intake,

stock heads and cams, old spec SE pipes (they say OFF ROAD ONLY)

and nothing but a dealership re-map.
