Default Revolution Performance 117" Bolt On Kit

Posting this as an FYI in case someone here didn't see this yet. At a 137 tq; this thing would be a Harley eater. Be great in something light like a Hammer, Gunner, or Kingpin.

Victory Motorcycles - Revolution Performance


Victory 117" Bolt-On Big Bore Kits Now Available!

Victory made one heck of a motorcycle and the aftermarket largely ignored it. Maybe because it was so good stock?

Revolution Performance knows how good the 106” Victory is and that with just a little more displacement, how great it could be! The new Revolution Performance 117” Victory Big Bore Kit increases the standard bore for 101mm to 108mm yielding a new displacement of 117”. When combined with our CNC Head Port, Exhaust and Tuning we have seen gains of more than 30hp and 17ft-lbs of torque.

The 117” Victory Big Bore kit is a service kit, which means we strip, bore, and plate your stock cylinders with our proprietary (NSC) Nickel Silicon Carbide plating process and ship them back with a set of perfectly matched forged pistons, wrist pins, clips, and complete gasket kit for $1674.95. CNC head modifications, exhaust and tuners are available for additional cost.

I've been anxious to see if this was going to be a reality of not. Polaris announced they killed Victory very shortly after these guys made one of their first announcements. So yea, I'm very excited about this and will certainly consider it. So this kit, head work, exhaust and 'tuning'. Maybe enlarge the throttle body as well?

If Rylan Vos or Kevin Cross go with this, I'm in. It would be just a matter of when at that point.

All the best,

Mark

Iím sure head work and a bigger valve body will set yo7 back another 1k. Also i would think a change over to the Maximus would be in order.

The way I see this new kit is for about the same price as the Lloyds 116" kit, you get Nikasil lined cylinders. To me, this makes it much more like the original design, just 117" instead of 106". Of course the additional mods are the same; cams, intake, exhaust, tuning etc. When given the choice for my CCT, I'll take Nikasil lined over iron liners each and every time. Others are fine with iron liners and I'm sincerely happy for them. Me, no thank you.

I'm thrilled Revolution Performance didn't ditch this whole project after Polaris killed off their Victory brand.

All the best,

Mark

Six of one, half a dozen of the other.
Nikasil cant be bored bigger or rehoned without drama....but it shouldn't need either.
The iron liners could be taken out a bit larger if need be and pistons were available (say 117" from the 116" or 110" from my 109")
Nice to know I can go a tad bigger in a few hundred thousand miles should the need arise.
Best of both worlds one could say....

Apparently Nikasil can be honed out without too much drama by a company like Revolution Performance. But I get your point, it's a very small number of companies that even could do this. I'd guess a whole lot smaller than the number of companies who could bore and insert a steel liner. In theory, with enough time and money just about anything 'could' be done though.

What turned me off of the steel liner option was when I talked to a Victory tuner I trust 100%. He thought I'd have to fog the engine anytime the weather got cold enough to snow or leave a heavy frost. That, or risk rusting cylinder walls thereby ruining the engine with one start up. Fog the engine, in Chattanooga, TN, no thank you, I passed on that note. And yes, I warm up the 106" as recommended for the steel liner BB kit. That part isn't a deal breaker for me.

Maybe I'm over simplifying this but it seems a Nikasil 117" kit would be just it came from the factory. Then add intake, exhaust, tuning changes etc. as money and desires allow. Making the 117" kit more of a 'designed in' system than an 'added on' system and I'm all for that. Currently my main interest in the Revolution Performance BB Kit is to see what Rylon Vos and Kevin Cross think of it. As posted earlier, if these two go for it, that's the marker I'd use to move on it.

If I'm over thinking this, please let me know your thoughts.

All the best,

Mark

Have you called Rylan or Kevin and asked them?

No, I'm not ready to make a move yet, even if they are.
