Default Where can i find a big bore kit for my '08 1200 nightster?

I've been looking but only found kits to upgrade from the 883.

Also, any ideas on an oil cooler? I'm not into the vertical type. I'm looking for a horizontal mount that fits on frame directly behind front tire. I talked to jpcycles.com they said that they don't make them for sporty's cause it wont fit.... BS.

I have a horizontal oil cooler that is a kind of a knock off of the old Lockhart oil cooler that I have on my XLCR and it mounts on the front of the frame but it needs a special bracket that I have and it fits my 99 XL883 Sportster. I do not know if it will fit a later year frame because of the rubber motor mounts and the frame change that came on the 04 and later Sportsters. I can check with the indy shop and see if it will fit and if it does, I can post up the part number for the oil cooler and the bracket number too so that you could order one from a shop near you or you and I can make a deal for the one that I already have that is new, unopened in the box, along with the new bracket that will be needed to mount the oil cooler to the frame. I should be able to post up YEA or NAY tomorrow on if it will fit or not. Until then, take care and ride safe out there!

Give Zippers and S&S a look for some big bore kits. They've been around for a long time.

+1, They are probably the most informative, affordable and accessible.

Yeah NRHS is the way to go. They offer all kinds of good parts. I wanted to go with the 80" or 90" but with those you have to have your cases bored out and i like to do all my own work so it wasnt an option for me. BTW im in the F***in AFG right now and get to come home in another 6 weeks!!
