I second that. I read an article on these motors years back in OzBike I think, and they stated that due to the extra height of the motor you need to buy a frame from Renegade to suit or have a one off frame made to your design to suit it. This is not the sort of motor you can bolt in as a replacement for your current Harley or Chopper to replace a tired Evo.

Thanks for the intro Goose. It always pays to check the date of the original post to see that there has been no movement on it for over a year. Chances are the OP hasn't been back after spamming up the joint.

Hmmm, let have a look at it then. Nev, joined up and his first post was an ad for an engine for $14000. He made one rely and hasn't been back to this site sine Feb last year.

I reckon the chance of him seeing a reply almost 16 months later is slim to none.

Jessee James has just done a deal with Renegade for a "Signature" series of engines. I think the price might be 20k now.

Not 100% sure but I believe these do not fit a stock Harley frame,
I have been looking a bit to upsize/Update my 1450 and this is what the websites I visited advised.

The power and torque figures quoted were pretty impressive though.

It's a valuable and an important part of these forums to list pros and cons, just that it is done in a non offensive manner.

eg...

Offensive manner...

"xyz engine is a piece of s#!t."

or "I wouldn't touch xyz with a ten foot pole!"

Non offensive manner...

"a bloke on a forum had an xyz motor and it made less horsepower than a standard twin cam. When they pulled it down the tolerances were way outside what they should have been."

or "They use cheap bearings in these motors and they only last 20000K befor they need rebuilding"

ie... it isn't just a uniformed put down, but offers a reason why the xyz motor is not a good way to go...

Not sure that I can explain what is acceptable or not any better.
