We are flying into February with Screamin’Eagle performance work for our customers to start 2017 miles ahead of where 2016 ended. While the hype is still around the new Milwaukee 8 engine that was introduced with the 2017 Models, we’ve gotten the opportunity to enhance a few of the new engines for those who share the need for speed. We took a stock FLHTK and installed the SE8-462 Power cam. The increase in mid-range to top end power was impressive to say the least. The horsepower cam picks up right where the stock engine begins to fall, which is displayed perfectly in the picture below. There is so much potential in these new engines, I get sweaty just thinking about it.
Maybe that isn’t enough? (You and I just became friends.) Look no further than the Screamin’ Eagle Stage 3 and just released Stage 4 kit for both Air & Twin Cooled Touring Models.
Be prepared as both of these kits will turn a torque-driven platform into a full range performance motorcycle. The stage 3 features 114″ Cylinders with High- Compression Pistons, SE8-498 Cam, High Performance Lifters, and Valve Springs to deliver up to a 39% increase in power. The 2017 Flhxs below went from the stock output from 76.87 horsepower to 114.40 horsepower as well as increasing torque from 95.14 Ft-lbs to 120.80.
That is a 48.8% increase in horsepower and 26.9% increase in the torque. While the increases are great, these parts all maintain factory warranty, which is something that the aftermarket vendors will never be able to provide.
The Stage 4 kit brings with it the addition of CNC ported heads, a MASSIVE 64mm Throttlebody, High Flow Injectors and a higher capacity clutch kit to handle to ridiculous amount of torque and horsepower it produces. I have to tip my hat to the guys in the Screamin’ Eagle division at Harley-Davidson. They have really put the gloves on and were ready to come out swinging with this new powerplant.
While the blog is centered around things going on in the Service Department, it’s also about encompassing the House of Harley family as a whole. What better way to do so then come party with us? Come burn some of that winter blues and get your motorcycle mojo going in time for spring. Check the link for more details and join us for out “Not Your Mama’s After Party, Saturday February 18th!

And when that party is over, you’ll be amped up and ready to rock. Why not rock all summer with a stereo upgrade? H-D’s Boom Audio is the perfect upgrade for your 2014 and later touring models. We also have a great upgrade for non-Touring models with the new Boom Bluetooth Handlebar speaker kit and rear speaker expansion kit as well. Here’s a Street Glide Special receiving a Boom Stage 2 saddlebag speaker lid upgrade. The speakers are paired with a 4 channel amp, discreetly mounted in the saddlebag. The lids are paint matched directly from Harley-Davidson to ensure that the fit, finish, and paint quality are second to none. The additional set of speakers is the perfect way to increase audio output without sacrificing space. Come see our Boom wall at either store and inquire about special pricing on Boom Audio Installation throughout the month of February!
