    friction, wind resistance, weight, all factor into top speed

    you might not go higher but you'll get there quicker...

    YOu could take it to Wolfgang Grasser on I-10 in Baytown and he would probaly charge you 250.00 to dyno it REdneck.
    He would do a program right then and there.
    YOu got my number it you don't know how to git in touch with him.
    Thats the least amount of money you'd have to spend.

    I don't mind throwing 'em around on the tight slow speed stuff but 120 mph? ..I must be getting old. I do like that true track on the back though. I don't know if it would have made things easier on the coronado trail but it is a lot nicer to ride now..especially pulling the trailer on the twisties..some day gonna have to go back to AZ and ride the trail again..that was a lot of fun.

    I am confident that I would break 105 with no problem. My bike weighs a lot less than yours my friend. I guess since that I have one year of riding under me, and a Sportster to boot, that must automatically mean I do not know how to ride? Just Curious?? :D:rolleyes:

    How much HP and Torque you putting out JB. One year of riding is OK and a good start but it takes years of riding and proper training to be a really good rider and well experienced. A straight line ride don't mean as much as compared to how well you handle it in corners. Have you taken any experienced rider courses besides the initial course you would take before you got your motorcycle endorsement. Keep riding cause every year is better and better. I've talked to riders here that have rode for many years and don't know what the term left push right push even means.

    I despise straight line riding. I look for roads that are twisty because that is how you learn how to ride.

    I am running at about 85-90 hp and around the same if not a little less on torque. I will have a better answer on those numbers once my season starts.

    I have not yet taken any type of advanced riding courses, but I will soon. I spend a lot of time on my bike, especially after I got it to run the way I needed it to. My bike is not a drag bike by any stretch of the imagination, just not practical for me. I think that my bike is set up perfectly, has a lot of power, nimble and comfortable.

    When I am out on my bike, I am crazy without being stupid. That is how I ride.

    I am running 10.5:1 compression, a nice set of SE Heads (with some head work possibly in mix) Pistons are flat top, 1250 cc, upgraded AI/AC, carb tuned really well, upgraded selectable ignition/coil and .497/.497 136/136 cams.

    Everyone that I have spoken to says I am around that area for HP and torque, but like I said, will know more at the beginning of riding season.
