    Watched the clips several times. Noticed I was touching myself after the third time so I had to quit!
    Thanks. Really like the shredded rear tire, shows you really mean it.

    What is your general rpm operating range? If I was guessing 3500-5500 with current set up. I'm thinking some S&S/Lloydz .495 cams with a reworked third gear customs intake (better peak power above 5000ish than TTI). We could get by with a PCV, a Maximus would be better (but I have the PCV already and the price is right,,,,,Free)

    I currently have the used cams, new springs, the intake and PCV. So all we need to do is figure a way to get the bike to Texas after the season.

    I'll drop the motor, pull the heads, do a little port work, change the springs, install the cams, get the ecm reflashed for 7000 rpms and then tune the girll up. Then get it back to you.

    Easy day.

    @RT Thor , wouldn't higher compression pistons be worth a few more ponies? If you’re pulling the heads I think they would be worth doing?

    If I ever make any real drastic mods that'll be one of the prerequisites. I think you'd get much more bang for the buck than the big bore kit.
    Looked at a lot of dyno sheets here and just can't justify the expense for the power gain from the 116".
    Seems like higher compression, cams, better air flow: bigger valves and headwork would yield a lot more for the money.
    No, I did'nt forget fuel management. Maximus for sure.

    Yes it would be worth a few more hp, but then you have a added cost as well. In my opinion not the best bang for the buck.

    I have included my v92 ebay build as an example of well thought out combination on the cheap, but solid.

    The bike is a 03 v92 with a

    -100" big bore. Not a kit but just some 100" jugs (off ebay for $80, but when the guy shipped them it broke a couple of fins off so got them for free) with late model 106 pistons.
    -used .495 cams off ebay for $120
    -ebay Bassani road rage exhaust $240ish
    -merger collector was giving to me
    -Autozone 3" pipe with a 2.5" reducer $17
    - Used Barnett heavy spring and pressure plate $50ish
    -New PCV $299 Motomummy
    -Used gen 1 Third Gears intake that I ported to match 48mm throttle body $200
    -48mm throttle body that i did years ago for flow testing maybe i paid $250 at the time.
    -New high lift springs $130 ish.
    -bowl work on the heads. The throttle body is not worth power, but my stock throttle body boot was cracked so the only boot I had was the one for the 48mm TB so I just put the tb and boot on.
    -ECM reflash by Rob'd Dyno Service $300

    My price list may be off some but all of it was great deal, mostly of ebay.

    Makes real good power for pennies on the dollar. It took a lot of testing on exhaust to get to this level.

    I have rode it from Texas to Maryland twice, once pulling a trailer.

    Really long post to say that, you are correct. However, I think that we can add some much needed power in the right rpm window to add to the fun factory without jacking up the cost. 20210729_121153.jpg 20210729_121349.jpg
