Motor Upgrade! Taking the Plunge!
After hemming and hawing back and forth, I finally decided to take the plunge and do something about my 2015 RGS engine. When riding two-up, it just didn't have enough power to basically get out of it's own way. So I trailered it down to Americus, Georgia on Friday and dropped it off at Star Racing, to get one of their Thrasher 107 kits installed. George Bryce, the owner, was nice enough to wait on me to arrive, (they close at noon on Friday) and let me drop it off.
Mr. Bryce gave me a tour of his shop and I got to see Angelle Sampey's NHRA Pro Stock Harley up close and personal. (Incredible!) The engine work should be done in about 3 weeks, so I'll be posting an update then, but wanted to give everyone a heads-up that I finally got off my keister and did something about the power (or lack thereof) with my RGS. Oh, and as part of the build, Mr. Bryce does a "before" dyno run to compare it to the "after" results, and my stock RGS made a paltry 75 hp.
Counting down the next 21 days till I can go pick up the new-and-improved bike!
I hope when I die, a lot of people say, "Man, that guy sure owed me a lot of money!"
