Beating the Screaming Eagle Electra Glide

beating the chicken The 2005 FLHTCSE2 Screamin' Eagle Electra Glide, is a 103 stroker and you would probably not a match for the Biltz. However this Glide is much more than that. With high compression stoker pistons, 257 cams and a 58mm Jim's throttle body matched with Vance & Hines dual exhaust and a PCIII its build to perform. However the downside of the Electra is its weight, tipping 355kg on the scale without oil and gas, the wet weight should average 390kg+ the rider. Friday witnessed a drag race between the Bomber and the Electra. The advantage of the Electra was its take off attributed to its weight, it took of the line, while Blitzy was burning rubber, rider fault I did not test the Mikuni 42, which I installed the night before. The Electra relegated the Bomber in first, second and was ahead by 2 cars length. Once I shifted to third the Bomber went super sonic and Blitzed the Electra as if it was standing still, crossing the line with at least 3 cars length ahead. Mission accomplished, I still believe it was not a fair race as weight ratios are handicapping the Electra. Nevertheless a win is a win, and in life there are only winners and losers. One Screaming Eagle Gunned Down who's next?

HTCC Ported?

ported HTCC stands for High Torque Combustion Chamber (or High Turbulence?) In a nutshell the job was straight forward, heads off, cylinder off, pistons on, cylinder honing, gaskets on etc. The question was should i keep the Mik 42 or should I swap for the 45. See ( The 42 is snappier and more responsive below 2500, whereas the 45 is more sluggish off the starting line. Once past 2500 revs the bike is a daemon, it redlines across the board reaching its top speed of 220KPH in no time (Harley time relatively speaking). Am I happy with the 1000$ I have spent on those mods? You bet Blitzy feels like a Ducati, unfortunately does not brake like one :)…

Blitz Bomber Phase III

Its been a while I did not update the blog and for good reasons. Blitzy got a major engine make over. The flat tops 10.25 Pistons has been swapped in favor of the HTCC 10.5 pistons, installed 0.30 cometic gaskets vs SE 0.40 and for the coup de grace, HTCC CNC Ported Heads coupled with a snarling Mikuni 45mm. The seat was swapped with the crossbones seat, after using the OEM springs way too mushy for my taste, I reinstalled the La Rosa springs. Cosmetically the light was moved up to the upper lower tree, giving the bike a more retro look.
