    Bike Builds

    Wildfire

    by Jon Montgomery / March 12, 2021

    I was recently given the chance to bring a bike back for the dead. After completing the build Cycle Source Magazine covered the finished bike with a feature. I couldn't be more thankful. Below is the article from Cycle Source Magazine. Enjoy the read and images of the final build. 

    Performance Times was originally a printed piece and then a blog and will now evolve into a Podcast. Along the way we’ll bring in some of your favorite racers, industry insiders and up and coming bike builders and talk performance, new stuff and events.

     

    S&S has been building big bore kits since the 60s and has it down to an absolute science. Their latest efforts are aimed at the Milwaukee Eight® platform (2017 and newer big twins) and opens up a whole new level of performance for these engines. Combining a new design forged piston with their...

This is particularly relevant for the heavy touring machines as it’s torque that rockets you onto the highway and it’s definitely torque that lets you...

    Now available, a 50-state legal version of our popular 475 cam for M8 touring machines. Bolt-in cam pulls over 100 Horsepower and 109 lb-ft of torque and now includes a Powervision PV3 tuner with built-in tunes allowing for a simple set up without having to put the bike on a Dyno! To make it...

    Big lift cams can open up the high rpm potential of the M8 powerplant, but they can also add stress to the stock valvetrain geometry. Valve thrust and valvetrain wear in big lift cam applications drove the S&S engineers to design stronger, more durable components that will help you get the most...

    The Indian FTR1200 is one of our favorite new machines, inspired by their Flat Track race bikes and checking all the horsepower, technology and handling boxes this segment demands. Our latest for the FTR line is a technology move and allows the base model FTR1200 to enjoy the additional modes...
