I just got back from the local bike wizard's custom shop today . I printed out all the specs on the Volusia . He took a look at everything I had , then took a look at the bike . This guy rides and builds HD's for a living . BUT , he also built the hottest 1400 I've ever seen . So , he will build anything for a price .
So he looks over my scoot , stops to jot down some notes , turns and says he can get 75 - 80 ponies out of it ! It all depends on how "street worthy" I want to keep it . Now I would love the "most radical" Volusia on the street BUT , will I be able to enjoy it ? He told me , if I like the way it is now , not to change it , but instead , get a different bike for this , and keep my Volusia for the longer trips . He also brought up the fact that , this fuel delivery system would have to be changed , meaning , fabricating a manifold , to put a different carb on . He said , in all reality , the Volusia does have somewhat of an "oddball" carb system on it . I don't know how "oddball" it is , but I do know it's a pain in the shorts when you have to remove the tank to get to it ! :roll:
