Disappointing Build

So I had a 117" build and asked them for a 130hp build just got the dyno results at 113hp and 127tq

Bore - 4.125
Stroke - 4.375
Cams Tman - 625
Compression - 10.5
Injectors - 5.3
Throttle Body - 58
Dragula 2 in 1

What do i need to change to get this done?

Man something not right. Any head work? Maybe a different tuner. That hp/TQ is in the 107 neighborhood.

Definitely seems like something is not right, I would have expected higher HP as well.

Yeah I could have got those numbers with a basic 107 just talked to Jamie at fuelmoto I need to get more specs over to him to see how it rolls. Definitely not worth the money I paid. I could have spent half and got a better build..

I can understand you being a bit disappointed but I don't think that the #s are something you would get out of a 107 build.
To begin you would be hard pressed to find 107 builds that are getting 127 ft lb of torque, the HP isn't that important anyway so why is it much of a issue TORQUE is where it is at.
Looking at most builds on the 88 inch engines with a 95 inch BB it was typical to try for 100 hp and 100 ft lbs of torque, then HD stroked the 88 inch engine 3/8 of an inch and you got the 96 inch and with a 103 inch BB in it you would get 90 to 95 HP and 104 to 112 ft lbs of torque (depending on the cam). The stroked 103 engine would not produce the HP #s the 95 engine would but the 103 would beat the 95 hands down on torque.
Dyno #s depend on the ability of the dyno tech doing the tune and also on how familiar the dyno tech is with the tuner you are using and of course the elevation and humidity also affects the dyno results.
I would think you could have the bike dyno tuned again and you may pick up or lose a little bit on the #s but the main thing is to make the bike a comfortable bike to ride on the street. JMO

the Last thing I should be worrying avout with my build is keeping up with a CVO..currently that is an issue... Granted 127 is high for a 107" build but 120ish isn't... Fuelmoto has put a 107 kit with those numbers before.. regardless 113hp is stupid low. The point is I asked for a 130 build and I could have went with a fuelmoto kit and got 130+ hp and Tq for the same money. My mistake was trusting the guy building.

Have you done a compression test and leak down test? It could be something small. Who tuned it? It very well be the tune.

I honestly believe it was just lack of knowledge on his part.

Dynamic Performance in Marlyland did the build, compression is fine could be the tune but it seems that the build is "light" from a few builders I talked too
