New 2016 FLTRU 110 upgrade advice


I am getting a brand new FLTRU delivered to me on the 16th of February. I have already started picking out the normal upgrades however I wanted to get the opinion of this distinguished group of people before moving forward on one specific thing.

I am looking to have the Screamin' Eagle Bolt-On 110 Stage III Street Performance Kit installed before I even ride the bike. The reason for this kit over the rest is the FLTRU comes with the dual cooled 103 as you all know. From my research this is the only upgrade that fits at this time that still gives numbers like a traditional Stage IV for the air cooled engine, give or take.

Does any one have experience with this kit? I am not finding a lot out there on it but given my desire for my new bike's performance profile this seems to be my only option. The dealer is offering to Dyno after install and I am planning on having an auto-tuner that I am still researching. A new air kit and Xtreme True Duals from Rineheart round out the package. Did I mention it will be purple?

All recommendations are welcome around my build however I am very interested in any comments around the 110 upgrade kit.

Thanks for the comments ahead of time.

Here's my take on it and you may not like it. Calculate how much this is going to run you out the door. Then look for a leftover '15 CVO RGU. You might not be that far off apart from a CVO which has a lot more creature comforts.

You might want to ride the bike first. The new 103's run pretty good. I test rode a new RGS and I liked the power it had. The RGU having the wet heads might even run better. If you need more power. Maybe do a stage 2 and save the money. JMO

I agree. Do a stage 1 and ride it a while. My hot rod days are past, but I think my stage 1 15 RGS runs well. It's also quiet and no stranger was mucking around in my brand new motor.

Just ride it for a bit then make your decision. Stage 1 or 2 would be money better spent. JMO

Buy the bike, put a good flowing set of pipes on it, an Andrews 57H cam and have it dyno tuned. I promise you will be happy!

I'll be blunt.....The 110 sucks balls. It's not appreciably more powerful than the 103, and it runs hotter. Put your money in suspension; it makes for a more fun bike.

I like that the kit keeps the Warranty.

Does HD have any Heads / CNC Head Programs that work with this kit and still retain Warranty? How about a 58mm TB? 'ya only live once...

Not a fan of true duals...

We just set up a long-time client in Sarasota, Fla, with a set of our Stage II Heads for use with a custom ported 50mm t/body, 110" cylinders that he provided, all set to used with a Cyclerama .575 cam.
This has the earmarks to prove to be a VERY potent combo.
Waiting for dyno results at this time.
CVO 110"s in general, with one of several cams, headwork/compression increase, 58mm t/body, and a good exhaust, will easily roll out 125/125, running very cool.

I recently had the Stage 3 110 kit put on my 13 FLTRX and I really like it. Bike is strong in every gear. I don't have any independent builders in my area that I would use, so going with a HD kit was a no brainer. I'm very satisfied.
