Sportsters are often ignored in bike magazines. However, the Jan. 2003 issue of Hot Rod Bike, pp. 35-37, has an interesting article entitled "Taking the 883 Sportster to the Limit".

They bumped the engine size up to a 1200, added lots of goodies and gave the bike some real punch.

I think Sportsters are really fun bikes. There was some very interesting and helpful ideas in this article. Hope ya' find it enjoyable.

Yup, I just read that article last night. I was surprised at the HP figures given since they used those 2 into 2 pipes. I didn't think that much HP would be made without a 2 into 1 exhaust. Maybe the 10.5 :1 CR helped things along.
