How much taller is it than stock. Looks like it just might be able to eat alright.

Fitment for 2008-up touring chassis? Makes me think there is more room than say an 06 model for example or has S&S redesigned that twin to keep it near stock height. Could not find anything on their site.
Is this engine a parts only?

what's the mpg? if you have to ask that question it is not for you. I know - 146mph into a 10mph headwind, 3500' elevation, flat road surface, girlfriend on the back, light luggage, cruise control on = 11.2mpg

146 mph with cruise on????? My cruise control doesn't work at that speed, even if I could go that fast.

If I'm on a touring bike (which is what this is all about) then I probably don't want to have to fill up every 50 miles so I find it to be a viable question.

Endangering myself is one thing but recklessly endangering another person's life is unacceptable in my book. If you somehow manage to make it through Darwin's Theory of Natural Selection and one day you have to explain to her family that the reason she is dead is because you wanted to go stupid fast down the highway with her on the back, then I hope they can forgive you. I pray you never have to do such a thing but maybe the harsh reality of what I just said will sink in to anybody reading this that wants to be a speed demon off the track and on public highways.

The mpg post was a joke. I suppose not an obvious (or funny) one! :)

Back when we got our S&S carbed 124" powered RK built and dialed in out of curiosity checked it got 33mpg. The R&R carbed 155" RK gets 31 mpg again just to know otherwise could give a hoot. The Thrill factor is worth every cent the fuel costs besides we do not have a choice.

Always enjoy hearing about these big guns more enthusiasts should have the chance to grab a handful with one of these thumpers between the knees.

We have injected 124"ers that clients have reported back to us that they are north of 50 mpg, under normal riding conditions.:)

Those big motors dont need to work very hard at normal cruising speeds. I think that that is why they can potentially get good mileage if you are easy on the throttle. I would not worry about the mileage nearly as much as I would worry about the rear tire. I could see myself smoking the rear tire 1st thru 3rd gear a lot and hoping to get 3000 to 4000 miles out of a tire.

Funny when you own a bike with one of these big engines the rear tire is another one of those things you don't concern yourself with too much since premature wear is a given.

One of the biggest concerns I have especially the way I ride is brakes that work. No ABS just years of using both ends knowing how to handle panic situations.

When the VE is way up, most any engine will have very good fuel economy.
I'd bet a 140/85/16 rear, would be worthless in the lower gears with that 144.
I believe that Shinko has a tire for that power, but won't last at all.
