Twin Cam 88 CID Engine

Performance and Technical information on the new 1999 engines for Harley-Davidson rubber-mount motorcycles.

The Motorcycle Performance Guide now has camshaft specifications and a horsepower gallery for the Twin Cam 88 engine.

Everyone has wanted to know what the new Harley-Davidson engine was going to be. Here is a picture of the new "Fathead" engine in a 1999 Dyna Super Glide. It is still a 45 degree, air cooled V-Twin engine. This engine was a ground up redesign. Harley engineers wanted to create a new, modern engine that will last 100,000 miles and still retain the classic feature of the older V-Twin. It looks like they have met their goals.

The technical specifications are:

Bore: 3.750"
Stroke: 4.0"
Displacement: 88 Cubic Inches ( 1450 cc )
Compression Ratio: 8.8-9.0:1
Horsepower: 62 at the rear wheels
Torque: 86 ft. lbs. for Dresser's or 82 ft. lbs. for Dyna's
Fuel System: CV carburetor or Electronic Fuel Injection
Ignition System: Single Fire
Twin Camshafts located in the engine case: Chain Driven
Cylinder Head: Aluminum, permanent mold with 85cc bathtub combustion chamber, single 12mm spark plug.
Transmission: 5 speed bolted directly to the engine.

For more information on the new engine, get the August 1998 American Iron Magazine. They have written an excellent article on all the technical details of the new engine.
