this is my first post in this forum.
So I first want to introduce myself a bit.
I live in Cologne/Germany and got a '05 Fat Boy for Christmas (big gift, I know
). It's all still stock.
I have some HD experiences, 'cause 10 years ago I build up a custom Sporty. I planed to spent one winter in the custom job, but after all it tooked me the winter and most of the following summer to get the bike done (done? is it ever done? lol). And did I mention, one girl friend
For the last few years I was more in riding sport bikes on the race track (YZF-R1, ZX-10R).
But now I am back with HD and guess what? I need some serious performance upgrades. Riding a stock street legal HD here in Germany is a no ng! If u would like to overtake a normal car u must wait until the next 2,5 miles of traffic free straights. And compared to my last hot ace (175hp/200kg)this is like riding a slug crossing a highway.
So I began my research for more engine power.
My first choice was the Edelbrock Performer Kit.
Dyna chart was very impressive but I did not found any dealer or reseller and only one review on the web.
Then I inspected many of the big names. Like Underground Heads, Bishop's Performance, Cycle Rama, S&S, etc ...
But I ended up with the Screamin' Eagle parts.
On reason is because the parts are genuine parts, that will make it easier to sell the bike later on. And a friend of mine is a HD mechanic, so he could help me a lot on this parts (he is also new in this hd business, an old moto guzzi mech).
Here is my prefered setup:
- Air Cleaner and Breather Kit 29440-99C
- CNC Ported HTCC Heads 16925-02A
- Big Bore Cylinders 16546-99
- Twin Cam HTCC Forged Pistons 22439-00A
- SE-257 Cam 25155-00
- Quick-Install Adjustable Pushrods 17997-99A
- HTCC EFI Intake Manifold Kit 29608-02
- Race Tuner
- Exhaust from '05 Screamin' Eagle Fat Boy Cal.
This is a mix between a carburator and efi set I found in the
"Screamin’ Eagle® Pro Racing Parts" catalog.
It should not make a superbike out of my Fat Boy, but give my some seriuos power and a smile in my face.
a) Did I miss anything? (Except the gaskets)?
b) Do u have any comments or suggestions?
c) Can I use the Intake Manifold with these heads?
d) Would it be better (price?) to get a Stage II kit kit and sell the pistions and cams after?
