Trask on here which took a lot of work to modify to get it to work. If you want it, no big deal. Started with a 80CI with 124 # torque, ran good. More is always better? 100 CI S&S was getting 165# within min. of start up. 4 hours later it was evident the frame was definitely not up to the task of keeping it together, literally. A new frame must be designed and built for more than the 80ci. We do not do straight line as handling and real word riding is our focus. Fun Factor +1 with a lot of work. No bolt on!



And another but not too much in the handling department:

I live in minnesota..... no question at 90 plus added heat not good, yet nothing is....'s's70's and 80's not an issue..... What's good is, on 3 three different bikes, and 14K miles, no problems with the turbo or the bike..... Get the right parts correctly matched and you are only half way there... The tune up is the most important part of the set up... the Air, spark and fuel must be spot on for the engine to live over time. Blowers, supercharger or turbo, work great on the Harley engine... I have 25plus years with turbo's and I would recommend you find an experienced blower dealer who knows the right way to tune the set up and get it on the bike......

the main reason I haven't done anything is there is no Trask Turbo installer near me. I've begun to think blower motor, but like turbos--no belts to deal with.

Rode a RG 2 days ago...96 with 255 cams and an intercooled Trask kit on it. Alot of power for the motor in that heavy of a bike.

Currently am waiting for my Trask to come in. Going to add 255 cams at the same time to my 103 in a Street Bob.

Pricy as fk....but life is short.

The only thing that I do not like with the Trask is the plumbing nightmare on the right side of the bike (particularly if you install an intercooler) and the non-bolt on nature of the unit that everyone talks about.

I'll stick with my setup for now as its far tidier.

Try here: LINKY

You can also look in Mag's I have on my site as well as Keven's Eslip's (Big Bear & now Rage Hard) 4 signature bikes. He has one red FXR that is great looking and truly flattering as you already know my own bike:
