That and all the dyno's for pipes for my bike show a nice 4 to 5 hp dip right where I cruise on the freeway. Just seems they moved it to an rpm range I dont visit very often. Add in noise, nah.

i bought a new 1200 c sportster in 2005. it was one fun bike to ride. i am 6-1 and 205 lbs. with a slip on muffler and jet kit it put out 72 RWHP. more than a new full size 96 cu in HD. it was well made and i just loved it. buy one and just ignore the stupid fools on big twins remarks about 1/2 a harley etc. i sold it becouse i am crazy and just wanted to try something else.
