Money is down...

Put a deposit down on a new Road King last week at site sponsor Ill. HD. (nice to meet you Sam!). It's a 2005 Road King in Black Cherry. Still trying to decide on what motor work to do. Ill HD has (3) 1550 upgrade kits. Stage 1 is 1550 with stock cams. Stage 2 is SE 203 cams and Stage 3 is SE 211 cams and their own porting work. Stage one is good for close to 80hp, stage 2 90 and stage 3 100hp. I'm not sure what to do...my intial thought is go for it...get the 100hp kit. However, I think it moves the power too far up into the rev range. Stage 2 may be the way to go with the power square in the middle of the band...but then again I had a 1550 stage 1 on my 1999 RK Classic and it was a good runner as well. What to do???

I'm open to advise from others who have gone to a 1550 with cams and head work...Tony??? Thoughts?

Awesome ride. The 100 horsewpower kit can be targeted to the rev range you wnat, its all in the size cam you go with. I have the SE 257 and above 3 grand it starts pulling like a frieght train, but mye is setup for top end, you can go lower.




HDTony.... Damn glad to meet you!

Thx Chills...however, I've been on the "dark side" since 1993 with my first HD, a Fat Boy. In '96 I had a Heritage Special and most recently I had a '99 Road King Classic.

Thx Tony...not sure I want my power that far up the rev range. I'm thinking SE 203 cams and no porting. Still should produce 90 hp and 90 ft lbs torque. Have you had your Standard on the dyno? If so what did it produce?

Well, at least you still own a Kawasaki.

I saw a guy with a RK and ape hangers run a 1/2 block wheelie, with his girl on the back. I think he had a 1550, stage two kit.
