The Harley-Davidson Twin Cam are motorcycle engines made by Harley-Davidson from 1998 to 2016.

Although these engines differed significantly from the Evolution engine, which in turn was derived from the series of single camshaft, overhead valve motors that were first released in 1936, they share a number of characteristics with nearly all previous Harley-Davidson engines. And I got the rare opportunity experience it by testing one of their most popular touring models, the Road Glide – first with the Twin Cam, and then with the new Milwaukee Eight, back to back – to see exactly what the changes felt like first hand. with your Harley Davidson’s bike and reprogrammes its OS to match your bike’s 45-degree, air-cooled engine design, they operate no doubt on a different clock Generally, twin-cam 88 Harley Davidson engines feature higher horsepower, overhead valves powered by pushrods, as well as counterbalancing features that reduce engine vibration. The riding experience in the ‘17 Road Glide was equally regal, as much of the bike is unchanged; but the new engine, along with major improvements in the notoriously bad front suspension, made for a better ride all-around. Here’s a look at the technical elements and developments that allowed the 88-cu.-in. engine the increase power and reliability. There’s no doubt that the evolution of Harley Davidson brand is one of the great developments that have happened to the motorcycle industry in the last couple of years. The new design runs so cool, Harley’s engineers were able to crank compression as high as 10.5:1; add that to an 8-valve engine with a 55mm throttle body flowing 50% more air than the Twin Cam, and they were able to crank a lot more power out of the new engine. There are I got into an argument with a Harley basher (who rides a Honda) who said that the average life expectancy of a Twin Cam 88 is 40 thousand miles. several Harley touring models in the market from which you can choose. The upside of an engine in development for that long is that it is very refined; modern versions are either 103ci or 110ci, depending on the model they’re in, and are fine engines, especially after the sweeping Rushmore updates of 2014, still powering a dozen models in the Dyna and Softail line for 2017. The exhaust chrome also comes with tuned length stepped headers and larger merge collector that raises power and performance. The Harley-Davidson Twin-Cam V-twin was introduced in 1998. wrapping up, many Harley Davidson bike users and riders don’t understand why For Harley-Davidson to introduce a new engine is a very big deal. But that’s just riding off the lot; not big picture. More specifically, the introduction of the twin-cam 88 Harley-Davidson engine is a great technological break away from the old models that have received a lot of praise. (In 8 Easy Steps). Harley-Davidson needed to modernize, we all knew it, and the new Milwaukee Eight is leading the way forward – and it absolutely does not disappoint.

Engine designers were instructed to make massive improvements in the Big Twin’s cooling ability, which they accomplished by: 3) More power, largely as a result of the improvements in cooling.
