2014 Harley-Davidson FLHXS Street Glide Special

When it comes to stripped down bagger style , highway comfort, usable technology and an unruly attitude, this is the new state of the art...

Enhanced by Project RUSHMORE, the new- for-2014 Street Glide® Special takes the hot-rod bagger formula a little further, adding a Gloss Black inner fairing, Reflex™ Linked Brakes with ABS, the Boom!™ Box 6.5 GT infotainment system and CVO™-style hand-adjustable lowered rear suspension as standard equipment. Powered by the new High Output Twin Cam 103™ engine and featuring a new Batwing fairing with Splitstream vent to reduce rider head buffeting, the Street Glide® Special is truly loaded bagger.

The innovative Harley-Davidson® Touring chassis, based on a single-spar, rigid backbone frame and a stout swingarm developed to withstand the demands of long-haul touring riders and todays more-powerful engines.

2014 Harley-Davidson FLHXS Street Glide Special Total Motorcycle Features and Benefits

Project RUSHMORE - Engine

As every rider knows, the engine is at the heart of the experience of riding a motorcycle. The amount of torque and horsepower it delivers over the RPM range is in direct proportion to the feeling it gives you when you roll on the throttle. We know what riders want from a motorcycle engine because we’ve been building them for 110 years. Project RUSHMORE gave us the opportunity to dial it in just right. We conducted thousands of road tests with real riders giving us feedback to build the next iteration of the legendary Harley-Davidson® engine. The consensus was: We want more. More low-end torque, more passing power, more perfection in the tone of the exhaust note, more of the feeling we ride a motorcycle for. So we built the engines that deliver it. We’re proud to unveil the next level of Harley-Davidson® V-Twin engine. And prove once and for all, the customer is always right.

Twin-Cooled High Output Twin Cam 103® Engine
If you started in 1909 with the very first Harley-Davidson V-Twin engine and worked your way up through every engine, every innovation, every improvement, every ride, every durability test in all those years and countless miles since, you arrive at the Twin Cooled High Output Twin Cam 103™ engine. This is the top of the line. 103 cubic inches of air and precision cooled Harley-Davidson® V-twin power. Twin cooling cools the heads around the exhaust ports to deliver at or near peak performance under all operating conditions and temperatures. Higher compression ratio increases efficiency and horsepower. There’s a new airbox for increased airflow and a new cam to optimize low-end torque. It’s got the fastest 60 to 80 mph 5th gear roll on in the history of Harley-Davidson. Which means it’s got the most passing power in the history of Harley-Davidson. On top of all that, it puts less heat on the rider and passenger on scorching days and in stop and go traffic

At first glance, even I missed where the water cooling was, but it's the "engine crash guards" that are the water cooling tubes! Now, that will be horrible in a crash (imagine scorching hot liquid being pumped all over your legs/you). But it's an interesting and unique idea, almost Buell like!
The above was my initial guess, but I maybe off (see page 2 of this topic) as I (still) can't find where the radiator is on this model.

Water Cooled Harley-Davidson 103 High Output Engine: The Twin-Cooled High Output 103 offers 10.7 percent more peak torque than the standard Twin Cam 103 engine.

I voted "cool". Interesting way to partially water cool the motor, but I'd like to see how the long term reliability holds up. I'm still waiting for a proper, fully water cooled motor in aRoad glide chassis, so I see these 2014's as a tempting glimpse of what will hopefully be coming soon.

And Mike, if you get into an accident bad enough to rip the crash guards off, I think you'd have more problems than just hot water spills to worry about. :shock:

I went with uncool, apart from the partially water cooled engine part, it's really just more of the same. When the motor company released the V-Rod, I briefly thought maybe they might start doing something new and innovative with their product line, but no, all we are getting from them is basically variations of the same old tired and oft copied theme.
Always ask why.

Well, judging by the bike in the pictures they deserve an AWESOME for making the radiators transparent. Is it just me or are the radiators missing completely from the bike in the picture??? :mrgreen:

Okay, I'm trying to figure this thing out. The press notes say it's twin cooled, but it doesn't have radiators like the Electra Glides. (Even the technical illustration posted shows these radiator pods).

Also, apologies for how massive the following image is. How do you resize these things?

The radiator shrouds on the Electra Glides (Even the technical illustration posted shows these radiator pods) contain a fan, now I'm guessing here, but the fan could be there because not enough air flow is making it to the pipes (engine guards). And I'm only guessing it has to be the engine guards because I don't see anything else attached to the engine to bring the coolant down to any radiator and the tech diagram shows the coolant pipes that match the "engine guards"... Maybe they are just engine guards and they are on ALL the new tourers and not the coolant pipes... but if so, where is the coolant pipes?

Same cooled engine, but it is either so well hidden or there isn't water cooling on the Street Glide versions.

UPDATE: So it appears from the Patent, the Street Glide isn't cooled then? As it looks like it needs the plastic shrouds which contain the radiators like the Electra Glides...? Can that be?

After perusing the HD website, I finally found the answer buried deep within all the videos and pop-up menus of the Project Rushmore section; the only bikes that get the Twin-Cooled motor are the stock and CVO versions of the Electra-Glide Ultra Classic, Ultra Limited and Tri-Glide Ultra. Good catch, Mr High Side!

It seems the focus of the "select" bikes is more on the new options rather than the new motors. One tidbit I missed in all the hype was the introduction of the electronically linked "Reflex ABS" brakes on 5 of the models.

What an awesome discussion so far!! :cowboy: :cowboy:

Thanks for doing that research last night. So that's quite interesting then, as the Street Glide (obviously) is using the High Output Twin Cam 103™ engine, but then if it's not liquid cooled, still gains the roughly 10% more torque vs the standard 103 engine. This is something that doesn't make sense (to me) as H-D would not have needed to liquid cool any of the engines at all to get the same torque OR would have put the +10% non-liquid cooled engines into their entire line up as it didn't need "anything else"?

Thus:

Happen to know if "Reflex ABS" lets you use the rear brake on its own? I've got linked brakes, but I can use my rear brake on its own (pretty useful for slow speed maneuvering). I actually wish my brakes weren't linked, since I don't see the point, to be honest.

It took me a while, but I found this item in a review posted on the Overdrive website; "The system connects the brakes between 32 and 40kmph. Lower speeds or higher speeds allow the brakes to be operated independent of each other". I guess that explains why they are electronically linked.

I've never owned a bike with ABS (but have ridden a few) and while I do like the idea behind it, I'm not sure if linked brakes are a good idea at any speed. in fact, on a sidecar equipped motorcycle they would actually be more of a danger than a help in certain situations.

I might have a chance to see a new 2014 H-D 103 high output tourer in the "flesh" this week from a local dealer. If I do, I'll ask them about the cooling on this model. :D

Yeah- how the cooling works on which models is still a mystery for me. I give it a cool for the updates but the styling is still dated.
