Where have you been hiding? Haven't seen you on here in a while. To give you some food for thought, I did a 107" and cams (no head work & 9.8.1 compression) last fall and in the 1000 miles since had the stock crank shift on me. I'm having the crank, trued, welded, balanced, and Timken bearing conversion done now. It destroyed my bored 107 jugs in the process so that cost for 107" is now double. Lesson learned for me. Not to say my issue is going to happen to everyone, but with the way HD makes the bottom ends now I wouldn't take the chance again personally. JMO
I intend to keep my bike a long time, but if I were ever to do a big bore kit and cams again I would spend an extra Grand and have the bottom end done right from the git go. If your looking for long term reliability do the crank too. It's only 6 more bolts to remove the bottom end from the bike.
