Anyone have one in their shark? Thoughts?

Is it worth $6,200?

No I don’t have one but don’t forget to consider supporting mods. $6200 is not the end of your journey. You’re going to need a throttle body, clutch, tuner, exhaust, dyno tuning...it’s going to add up fast. Much more affordable to build what you’ve got.

HELL YEAH IT'S WORTH IT!

Here's a Dyno of my bros RGS S&S 124" with KJC CNC Heads, Custom CP Pistons, HPI 62mm TB.

And for sure will need some more supporting parts as well.

Dyno Results are in "STD" vs "SAE" but still a Ripper!

Depends on what you really want your scoot to be power wise. If you want the power of the 124" then it's worth it even with the extra stuff involved. If you try and build yours to match the 124" numbers you would not have the reliability in the bottom in that the S&S has. If you don't need as much power then just build yours and call it a day. I say the S&S is worth it if that kind of power is what you want.

If I had a rod go through my case out of warranty I would. Then I'd be at the drag strip in the 124" class. Losing and loving it.

I had a S&S 124" high compression motor in my 12 and loved it.. But unless your doing the swap yourself your going to be looking at around 10k all said and done.. My 130 lost a rod bearing at 50k that's why I went this route.. One thing to keep in mind with the S&S motor the bike has no value to a dealer at trade in trust me I know.. I had 30k on this motor when I traded it in and had a smile on my face all 30k.. If you plan on keeping the bike it's wort it.. Would I do it again?? Will cross that bridge when the time comes..

...chain conversion, beefed up brakes.... I'm sure it'll be closer to 10 or so having chatted with my local shop.

I may sell the Dyna and go big on the shark. :grin:

I want power AND reliability.

if you can find an independent that builds them you can save big bucks.
there's not as much room to haggle with a crate engine, and most of the good builders love to assemble them.
most of them still take pride in their work.

pull the stock out, fog it, put it up on the shelf on a turntable and just admire it. or you could sell it and recoup some of the money.

if you're sensible with it, you won't have to worry about the drive-train.
i had to change to a solid rear wheel on my heritage, spokes were pinging at me all the time lol

Thank you for all the responses guys, much appreciated.

So right now I have a 103" with a TW555 cam. It has 4500 miles. What could I reasonably expect to get for it should I decide to sell it?

Stuck a 124lc in my 13 last fall. 58mm tb,D&D 2into1 and T-Max tuner. Dyno'ed 120hp 127tq. Didn't get to ride it much after getting it dyno'ed but what little I did it was a blast.

8 years old I was going to the local Indy and look at them work on Harleys, Indians and British stuff. They would tell us how to fix our bicycles.

Very cool. In '71 I was -8, as in negative 8 years old. Dad was still out riding and tearing it up with his buddies.


I was racing dirt bikes at 8. Fun times. I still have my first bike from when I was 4 years old in the garage. Little 50cc Yamaha.
