    Big Fuckoff Engine - 2017 Dyna Low Rider S (FXDLS)

    This is about as close as Harley has ever got to making a proper riders bike. I love my Harley's but I also love having a go through the Natio etc. For me this bike ticked all the boxes, (take in mind this is when compared to other HD's) which is light, nimble, powerful and can be made to look subjectively cool.

    - 110ci Screamin Eagle Engine (1800cc) which comes with the SE 255 cam, Better Heads and that stupid donkey cock air intake
    - Twin disc front, Big Rear brake, ABS.
    - Throttle By wire so has cruise control
    - Premium ride suspension, height and compression adjustable (like a car coil over)
    - Security Pack
    - God damn canbus wiring fuck me dead kill me now

    I traded the sportster in for a price I was shooting for privately anywat, I loved that bike. I survived years of burnouts, torture and been revved of it's dick for years and only killed rear tyres and a clutch. Was really sad to let it go. I pulled all the good shit off it to make some bucks. Fuck em.

    FXDLS was presented very poorly, paw prints all over tins, dusty, and the big buck LED flush mount fuel caps/guage doesn't work for shit.

    Clutch was so far out of whack you had to pull it to the grip to engage the clutch, shift lever was nearly vertical. Fuck me dead. I'll be taking it back. Also the brakes are mushy, but that should come good from all reports.

    Bassani RR3 sounds amazing, I rode home with stock tune in it and was very lean, but just babied it the 22km home. Wired up the powervision and flashed in a Fuel Moto Map. Instantly the bike ran much better, the flat spot about 2.5k rpm gone, smooth pull through out. The increased limiter makes it way better. The stock bikes limiter kicks in way too early and hard.

    Hit the local industrial estate that was vacant at 4pm on a saturday and did some Auto tuning and logging, filled most of the VE cells and reflashed 3 times. A lot smoother and runs a lot cooler.

    This bike seems to have a shitload of compression braking compared to all my other bikes, I don't mind it at all.

    Overall, stoked on the purchase, let the mods begin


    New and old steeds






    Got to get rid of the stupid reflectors, pipe is bad ass though!




    Powervision routed from Fusebox, under seat, under tank and mounted to bars, came up neat.

    Nice, took one of these for a blast a couple weeks ago (a friend has one). Wasn't a bad thing really.

    I don't know what's sadder, the fact I get the reference or the fact I'd be lying if I said I didn't want a Dyna because of it

    Just did first proper ride through the natio this morning.

    Holy shit I am in love, this is the best bike I've ridden by far.

    The tune is real nice now, spending the day autotuning and reviewing the logfiles has transformed the engine, so smooth and filled in all the torque dips throughout the range particularly 2.5-3k rpm.

    Roll on power is amazing to me coming from a sporty, I gave it a blast from 70-160kph and it felt like it took a blink of an eye.

    I adjusted the clutch freeplay to how I like it, these boxes are smooth as butter compared to the sporty. Brakes are becoming much better, I still only have 200km on it so It's got a lot more breaking in to go.

    Stock suspension is also really good, a few patches of the road I know are notoriously rough were no issue, bike held its line and took it all in it's stride.

    I should have bought one of these last year. WHAT A BIKE! haha.

    Keen to see your custom touches with this one, although it sounds like you love it too much at the moment and are subsequently busy touching yourself. lol

    He messaged me Saturday night haha.

    I got some plans but just letting the wallet cool off for a bit and enjoy it. Might start with the usual crap like bars, seat and Pegs to get it how I like ergonomically and then the cosmetic stuff will start after.

    Something about these things floats me boat. Sentimental attachments to my current tractor but seriously considering the upgrade. Subscribed

    Looks pretty cool, doesn't sound like an old Massey Ferguson like a heap of the Harley's I hear around here either.

    Back when I had an 883

    This was like a 5000rpm clutch dump LOL



    And for comparison a stock standard Vespa...

    Vespa also did better burnouts

    So scooters are less gay than Harleys

    Looks like a good thing, but like pretty much every Harley it's 100kg too heavy and missing decent brakes haha

    The 110ci Screamin Eagle would have some good grunt though.

    Yeah it's heavy, for a full sized Harley it's light, would be approx 270kg with the new exhaust. Low centre of gravity so doesn't feels as heavy as the sheet indicates, this bike handles night and day better than the sportster.

    brakes are pretty good, twin 4 pots with ABS, never needed more than 1 finger so far. The mushiness at the lever is gone now, much better feel after 400km's.

    The engine is the icing on the cake, gobs of torque from near idle. Does start to sign off around 5500rpm but just click another gear

    Mexican batman you could wheelie a golf cart with 150kg hanging off the back of it!

    Parts are filtering in, of all places from Lebanon.

    Quarter fairing, laminar lip and a cool as fuck FXRS repop front fender in carbon.



    When a company says "direct bolt on" take that shit with a grain of salt.... but got it on there.

    Need to a bit of research on drilling Carbon, can you just take to it with any old drill bit? Would hate to fuck this piece up.

    I've drilled carbon fibre with just decent regular metal bits. High rpm, low pressure seems to get it done. If you push too hard you can blow out the carbon at the back (which causes the fibres to fray) rather than cutting a nice hole.

    I imagine it would be a lot like Perspex to drill? I'll have to go to dads to use the press.

    Nice one. One of my boss' brothers just got one not long ago with the 110. Decided it's not enough and is in the shop for a while.

    Went to a dyno day at local shop.

    Made 90rwhp & 111ft lb

    There are angry swedes everywhere because this dyno is reading 15% lower than habibi's down the road lol.

    Was most powerful dyna until a 117 kitter low rider made 103/118.
