131ci Street Glide Special Harley-Davidson Lübeck

131ci Street Glide Special Tuning at Harley-Davidson Lübeck

The 131ci kit in a Street Glide Special and the Wilbers Nivomat suspension change everything!

went on a big tour with the first Milwaukee-Eight to drive it straight to the North Cape

In the end, I drove 30,000 kilometers with it in that year and, apart from an accident on a mountain passage in Norway , where a bus tipped me into a stone wall, it carried me across Europe. Today we know how much potential the Milwaukee-Eight still has; I wouldn't have expected that from Harley-Davidson .

The Milwaukee-Eight engine has enormous potential

The engine was designed in such a way that it can cope with the increasingly strict European standards. You have to ask yourself why it is even necessary that vehicles that are used 80% only for leisure purposes have to comply with such strict regulations.

We are currently using the Harley-Davidson Milwaukee-Eight engines with up to 117ci in the series and they are driving really well. The tuning has now gone up to 144ci, which is very intense. In Oxford / England, HD technicians got well over 200 hp out of it and are driving it with the original gearbox. I still have an invitation in my pocket, at some point I have to see it live.

131ci Street Glide with Wilbers Nivomat suspension

At Harley-Davidson in Lübeck, which also has a very good reputation in the scene for DynoJet mapping, the 131ci has now been installed based on a Harley-Davidson Street Glide Special from 2020 in the color Zephyr Blue / Black Sunglo. DynoJet mapping tailored to the vehicle turns it into a real monster. All assistance systems continue to work and there are no indicator lights flashing, which indicates good tuning.

What you should never forget when tuning is to also keep an eye on the chassis; on the 131ci Street Glide Special they installed the Nivomat chassis from Wilbers. The corresponding spring elements at the front and rear were replaced with Wilbers. If you're traveling without a lot of luggage or tuning, you'll certainly be able to use the original chassis as long as everything is set up correctly. However, if you have more plans, you should definitely look into the subject of the chassis.

In order to find the right basic setting, the driver takes the weight into account; this is the basis for everything that the Nivomat system adjusts to if the conditions change. This means that as soon as a passenger is on board or there is a lot of luggage on the Harley-Davidson, everything changes. The Nivomat system regulates itself after a journey of approx. 300 meters and automatically adapts to the new conditions. You get a tremendous amount of stiffness in the Street Glide, which prevents it from swaying at higher speeds.

In the series, the Street Glide Special is limited to 178 km/h. With the 131ci and after DynoJet mapping it is open. This means that it can reach speeds of up to 220km/h and rides like it's on rails, no comparison to the original chassis. The 131ci puts a lot of pressure, it's not always just about the high speeds, it should also stay on track when the torque is called upon and you accelerate out of the curve.

It's a powerful combination, the engine pulls continuously from the bottom, even in 6 gear it pushes hard. The 131ci are the equivalent of 2146ccm³, which now build up the pressure in the Milwaukee-Eight V2 to produce an incredible 200Nm of torque.

The price of the projectile is 50,000 euros.
