Can you make a stock SHO engine bulletproof??
Picking up my 2011 SHO cruiser this week after selling my well loved and very reliable FXHO cruiser.
My riding is all salt water with conditions generally mixed, somewhere between rough and smooth. It will definitely not be used as a wave jumper but will see a lot of time touring and towing.
All out acceleration and top speed is not my aim, but absolutely reliability is.
From the experts that are on this forum, what are some of your top mod tips to enhance the reliability of the supercharged motor?? Can you actually make them almost bulletproof with some reliability mods if they are looked after and well maintained?
I plan on keeping this one for quite a few years .

In stock form you shouldn't have any trouble; however, adding a bov will take a lot of strain off the SC.

No expert here but the WAY you ride will affect the SC clutch life, which is the weak link at the moment on these engines. Letting off the throttle then going to WOT abruptly as well as unhooking/hooking under power is very abusive to the clutch. Not saying you can't hammer it--just be easy with throttle input changes.

Saving up cash, going to get a BOV like everyone says we should.

If you want to save yourself pulling/ tapping the manifold than this part is key. http://www.4-tecperformance.com/inde...oducts_id=1000
or you can just T the hose that goes from the manifold into the MAP sensor so save some dough.
