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..

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.

If a 124" is in the future, a good running 103" with a cam, and a good set of cylinder heads may hold you for awhile.
And when/if a 124" is wanted, we have dedicated LARGE torque combo's, that encroach 150 ft/lbs with early delivery just for touring machines.
We currently have 4, 124"ers we are completing.

Been Happy with My 107 build from Drago Bike Works. I have put on 27k miles since the build. As to the 124, bigger is always better or so they say. But cost is about half.

Good morning all!!!!!
I am sorry I don't post much any more just very very busy here don't have time to sit in front of PC when we are busy between our 2 shops!!!!!!

A good solid 107 with 108/115 HP and 118/124 TQ is a great all around driver. And at half the budget.

Here is a Dragos 107 Diablo 2.8 kit with our prototype cams 600 cams series I will not give out specs yet until kit is 100% ready.
4th gear
5th gear more timing.
New Dragula 2 exhaust.
Enjoy.....

I've got Dragos Diablo 2.5 kit in my bike and love it! I had my bike tuned by a no BS tuner who doesn't play games to up the numbers and I got almost exactly what Frank promised. Great service and support. Frank will spend as much time on the phone as you need w/o the high pressure sell. I am 100% sure that the other shops on the Forum are great also, but my first hand experience with Drago was great. That will be $.02!

It's always nice to see a dyno sheet posted with your builds.Some builders talk about all these monster builds but never once show a dyno sheet to back it up.:confused:

I've been real satisfied since going to 107. I was able to do all the wrenching myself and had Hillside do the machine work. As long as you plan for the right combination of parts, your build will have you grinning in no time.
