107" Upgrade

Is bumping up 107 with head work, throttle body, clutch and cam from a 103 RG worth the money for a touring bike?

Well that is subjective, but the easy answer is Yes. You dont lose anything in the process it is a great enhancement. Now i would upgrade to hydraulic clutch.

I would do it every time..

Conrad, instead of bumping to 107 have you ever thought of jumping up to the SE120 or S&S 124?

A properly built, well tuned 107 is an excellent setup and they run out real strong. The most important aspect is using a combination of components that works together. We build & tune them day in day out with various setups, for those interested there are several hundred dyno charts to reference on our website here http://www.fuelmotousa.com/p-33193-dyno-charts.html

I would take a good look at the cost of the 107 build VS the cost of a 120 or 124 engine swap.
The cost of a 107 build would be reasonable if you did all the work yourself but if you're uncomfortable tearing into the engine and have the work done then the labor cost will add a significant amount of money to the price tag.
On the other hand if you are capable of doing the engine swap yourself which isn't hard to do then the new bigger engine may be a good option.
Swomack and Smarty like this.
