At Hot Bike we are always on the quest for more horsepower. Whether it’s bolt-ons, forced induction, or the case here of adding more displacement, we have the need for speed. Take this 2005 88-inch H-D Twin Cam motor for instance. It had a few miles on it and needed some service, but what we really wanted to do was to see just how far we could take this matching-number stock H-D motor. We contacted S&S Cycle, and after much discussion the team agreed to send us one of their 124-inch Hot Set Up kits to install. Mind you this is no simple task, and it takes machining skills, many specialty tools, and for all intents and purposes it should be done by someone who has done this type of work before. This is why we enlisted Phoenix, Arizona’s Danny Wilson, a.k.a. the Motor Witch for the job. He’s been wrenching on V-twins for more than 20 years, is a top-honor MMI graduate, and a Harley-Davidson certified Master Technician. Once we nailed a date down we trucked on out to Arizona and got to work on making this little V-twin a fire-breather. Check it out!
