, I’m sure you’ve heard this before but removing the cats on a Victory Cross bike reduces torque below 2500 between 4 to 6 pounds. Exactly where you don’t want reduced torque. The Cross bike oem header system is an excellent design which is why keeping it intact and only replacing the mufflers is the better option.
Yes, you can add a Lloyds timing wheel to regain the lost torque which in that case, only might get you back to where the bike started before cars were removed.
If your cats are gone and your mufflers are gutted, overall reduced power and torque are the typical result. Unless you’re building a 1/4 mile drag bike. But it will be very loud.
Like has been posted, chasing high numbers is a fool’s errand. There are too many other factors to consider. In the US many years ago many with the exact same bike, the exact same mods had very different end result numbers. Yup, you guessed it. One persons dyno was consistently and ridiculously optimistic. By nearly 10/10! The other two were only different by 3/4 each.
Your biggest current issue seems to be your hydraulic clutch causing high load slippage due to not being able to adjust free play. Unless you can find a way to physically move the clutch shave cylinder you have no real choice but to remove it in favor of the standard cable actuated clutch.
Your bikes lack of cats and its fully open exhaust system will be your next area of concern.
