Here we are with part II of the S&S; 106ci Hot Setup kit on our '02 Road King. To get you up to speed just in case someone stole your copy of last month's (Vol 41, No 4) issue, we spent some time with Eric and Bob Bennett at Bennett's Performance in Signal Hill, California. We left off with Eric and Bob putting the lower end together, fitting the pistons to the cylinders, installing the cams, lifters, and oil pump, and everything in between.
In this issue we're wrapping up the top end and building the new S&S; Single Bore VFI assembly. As soon as we get the motor back in the bike, we can program the new S&S; EFI system. For better tuning capabilities we are updating the bike from an open-loop system to a closed-loop system, so we will need to weld in exhaust bosses for the oxygen sensor. We'll cover more on this next issue. Then we will put as many miles on the bike as we can, and get the final numbers.
