S&S 124 is in and running!!!

I took the day off yesterday and drove up to my buddy shop yesterday to pick up my S&S 124. Man this thing is purdy. I dropped it in the frame last night and hauled ass to the neighborhood poker night. I was out until 2am and tried to go to sleep but this thing kept calling my name. I caught a few ZZZZ's and woke up at 7:30 and went straight to the garage to finish this beast. It went very smooth. I had it running by 1pm this ting sounds mean. It hits a lick. Revs very fast and is SMOOTH. I'm following the s&s book about the break in and giving it a few heat cycles.

Thanks guys!

I just took it on a ride and this thing is a beast. I didn't rev it over 3k and it pulls hard. Torque,torque,torque everywhere. I don't know of I can last 1000 miles lol.



This thing is quiet no weird HD noises. Just smooth and quiet.

It's a 2013 I didn't have any motor problems just wanted some power. I tried a 107 with heads and just wasn't happy. It ran great but just wanted more. I was looking to build a 117 but by the time I added everything up this crate motor was a better option.
