I got my 2013 Road Glide Custom back from DragosBikeWorks
Frank installed his 580 Cam Set with S&S Traveler Lifters and Pushrods. He also installed the SE Clutch Spring and did some work on my compensator to help oil it better. I fired the bike up and can tell there is indeed a cam in the motor it has a nice lope to it. After getting the bike back home via trailer I went for a ride. On the big slab doing 70 in 6th gear I rolled on the wick and it jumped to 80- like now and then 90.

I did have some cager from Minnesota in the left lane was doing 90+ I cracked the wick and caught up to him in no time at all. Frank will be doing some more work down the road as the CVO Mufflers and Fullsac 2” baffles with the Dragos true duals is not giving me optimal HP and TQ. This is not a negative comment on Franks work nor his products but rather a decision I had made as I love the true dual sound and knew when I bought the pipes that it would be that way.

I may sell the Dragos true duals down the road and go with his “H” Pipe setup to gain a little back but honestly, I am very happy. Even at the 90+ mark on the speedo it wanted more and I will not confess nor infer that the bike will do well over 100 and I have never inhaled.

Frank at Dragos Bike works knows his stuff. The dyno sheet attests to his ability to tune a motor. Frank Tunes on the dyno to true number not some "HAPPY DYNO" number. He predicted and got me what I asked for.

I am a customer for life and highly recommend anyone wanting excellent service and work done to get with him. Best in the nation bar none!!

Ride Safe.

Great looking numbers! Very encouraging! I'm in the process of breaking in my Dragos Stage 2.5 upgrade. (106" 10.4-1/stage 2 heads/580 cam/S&S lifters) I can't wait to be able to "ride it like I stole it". Update to follow.

Yes, funds were a constraint for me but this fall I may go back and have Frank do the 2.5 and a new crank as well since the stock one is like sheet metal... that 580 cam is a puller for sure ! !

Nice and flat torque curve makes for a good riding bagger.

Congrats!

Totally Agree

Very Nice. That's where you want your torque on a bagger, good job Frank
You bet! Frank at Dragosbikeworks does excellent work and has a non happy dyno. He gave me exactly what he said he would and a little more without fudging the numbers. Honest and a real person !
