Well the only thing I can say about bikes with bigger bore kits is when they pass you on the slab, or roll up to the fuel pumps they sound great.

The only time I've seen them in a situation where I could actually look at them hard was at a dealership and 50% of the time when they go to fire them up the battery is dead.

After about 15 mins on a tender they sound great too

I bought a V96 after I found out the 111 has compression releases. My rule of thumb is "anything that can go wrong will go wrong" and a compression release is just one more thing to give problems. In the S&S tent at a bike show one of the S&S people said he runs a 96 in his own personal bike and is happy with it.
