And so it begins, just text my new shop in Tennessee :



Ok, all I want to accomplish is to get the most reliable whp out of the stock 114.

I've read with the right cam, pipe and tune we should be able to get 30%+ mo Pah.

I don't need anything real loud (my ears are already smoked)

I love low end torque


Thus, when you can, let me know your performance suggestions.

Cam
Pipe
We already know Power Vision tune

Question for you bike guys...

I see this constantly bikes riding towards the center lane or sometimes ON the center lane WHY? Or riding side by side taking up the entire lane. I hear bikers want to be seen and heard, why wouldn't you want to be furthest away from other traffic or taking up less space in a lane? The only thing I can think about is road debris near the shoulder side.

What's the deal?

I usually stay toward the left side of the lane for visibility purposes. I can see oncoming traffic better and they can see me. If riding in a group you ride staggered so the second person would be in the right side but behind you. This allows room to swerve if something is in the road.

Flat land
Aka Illinois I always rode more towards center.

Here in the hills, FAR RIGHT or
You will die.

So many up and down hills, you can't see shit and I meet cars, trucks etc cresting the hill and a lot of times they are crossing the center line.

Stock Clutch / trans solid with only a stage 2
(cam, pipe, tune)

People bump displacement, 117, 128, 131
That is when clutch / trans definitely need to be addressed.
Along with converting it to chain drive

I have no desire to bump displacement.

Also, riding down the center of the lane can put you where cars are dripping fluids, such as oil, so it tends to be avoided.

So this is what I meant about staying to the right, so many of these blind hills (almost clicked side view mirrors many times)

The locals sometimes crest the hill across the center line

Had to make a beef jerky run

Thanks!

I had Rinehart DBX 4.5" slips ons before I even brought the bike home 🤣 Put them on the same day I brought it home, along with a few other things.

Cam will be in a couple years after the warranty is up. Talk to Mike about cams, he's done all the research already.

If you've never been out there, it's a must-do, at least once just for the experience.
