Default Building up another bike

After some investigation we ordered up performance parts for my bud's 2008 Yamaha Stratoliner VTX1900 EFI Midnight. The engine has been completely stock since new and is kind of a beast as is. Scott is upgrading to the best "stage 1" available for the bike and yeah, I get to help put it all together .
1. Baron Stealth Big Air intake 2. Freedom True Duels Racing exhaust(BLK) 3. Power Commander V. 4. dyno tuning by Dyno Solutions

I can't wait to see the number this bike achieves, I'm pretty sure its going to trounce what stage 1 Vics are getting.....but I will keep you posted. Scott is 21 years old, so he'll be real proud to have more Hp and Tq than the old man...lol

Since there is soooo much interest in this I thought I'd update .....lol
Work started on the build last night, Scott just couldn't wait for everything to arrive, so since the Freedom exhaust was dropped at his house yesterday he HAD to get going on it. He worked until very late so using drop lights I "assisted" him to remove the stock exhaust. Later this afternoon we'll mount up the Freedom duels and I'll get a few pics and maybe a sound clip.

BP666VR, no, that is a Honda VTX1300 not a Yamaha Stratoliner 1900.

Those Strats are nice bikes, but the Victory is a much better looking bike.

They have an over running clutch so that the back tire never slides on a down shift as well as a bunch of other nice features. It doesn't hurt that Yamaha is consistently number 1 in owner satisfaction either. Nice ride!!

Scott is the same over his Stratoliner, he loves it. I have ridden it a few times, the big 1900cc engine is impressive, lots of grunt everywhere, it pulls smooth...got to keep a close eye on speed or it'll get away quickly and the bike is more spacious than it looks, when I ride it I don't feel that cramped-ness of being on a Harley or Indian. Where it doesn't compare to the Vic XC is in handling and braking, the big Strat does not like to turn, slow or fast its got to be forced to maneuver, not a bike for flicking around. The brakes feel wooden and slow to stop, with no ABS it can get hairy to haul the Stratoliner down. Then there's the tranny... I have no idea what Yamaha was after for this bike when they geared it. The five speed gear box just does not seem to fit such a big torque monster V-twin.

Anyway work has kind of stalled for now, since the exhaust gaskets got delayed in shipping, Freedom exhaust didn't supply any and none of the area dealers stock them. Of course the kid is having a hissy-fit.....but that what young impatience gets a 21 year old that starts ripping into a project before they have everything to do the project ....One ends up with no bikey to ride on a beautiful Sunday ....
