Hi Mike I got a 2007 Fxwg Harley with the new 96 cu motor and 6 speed transmission. I've done a Se high flow air box, put a set of D&D Fat Cat 2 into 1 pipes with the sert. I was looking at a 103 kit. The H-D dealer closest to me is 50 miles, he suggested doing a 103 kit with this for parts, he's suggesting to do forged pistons, he has raced harleys for 40 yrs. He said the compression ratio would be 10:5.1 and the heads would have compression releases. I screwed up and bought a extended warranty on the bike. Don't know if its any good or not. The dealer said they would stand behind the build along with the warranty at this dealership only because of the kind of build they are doing.
all prices reflect a 10% discount on parts and pricing for cylinder bores are pending on napa.
I went to a indy shop and here is what he suggested.
David, In my low compression kit, 9:8 to 1 , with a stock throttle body,
your d&d exhaust, your stg 1 hi-flo (installing new filter), my cam and
cylinder package with heads. Your race tuner, tuned. 3200.00 inc. tax and
labor. 12 mos, 12K warranty. Approx. 104 hp 112+ tq. should be close
w d&d pipe.

Which build would you go with of do something different ?
Would you worry about the warranty on the bike ? I've never had a new bike and never had to worry about it.
What kind of suggestions would you give for a build. Also what do you think about Zippers thundermax Generation II with auto tune against Sert ?
What ever happened to folks sending heads off to be ported and doing a build like in the 70's at the indy shops ?
Thanks for any help you could give.
Oh yea I ride a lot by myself. I would like the cam to be all way threw the rpm range starting like at 1800rpm. and my wife rides 2 up with me a lot too.
