Well I called and talked to Rylan Vos @ the Vic Shop about upgrading my 2013 Victory Cross Country Tour.
He stated that the Atom Bombs were making good HP and torque numbers approx. 105/115 If I remeber correctly and thier only $300.00 which is a good price.
I'm thinking about taking a ride to Iowa and have him install the Quarter-turn Throttle Ring
, Lloydz Performance Cams
, ( HOH-VM1-DR cams), Adjustable Timing System
, and Dyno tune the bike.
In order to save a few dollars, I might install the exhaust, Lloydz XC/XR Hi-Flow Air Filter
, and the PCV with a downloaded map from Rylan prior to taking it up there within a week.
I don't know much about the PCV but Rylan mentioned it has to be hooked up to the bike to download the map if I understood him right, connection wasn't that great as I was surrounded by steel. If that's the case I'd have to purchase a Laptop which I'm going to do anyway so that's not a big deal.
I'm mechanically, electrically and compter competent but know little except what I've read here about the PCV and am worried about messing up my engine unless I would just download his map and it would run fairly well which I'm assuming it would.
What I want:
I'm looking for a nice low rumble while at idle and cruise while still being able to hear my music and yet have a very aggressive bark while on the throttle.
1.) How do you like the sound and performance of the Atom bombs?
2.) Would it be better to have him do it all at once and pay for the extra labor or do some of it myself and save some money?
3.) I think that full exhaust systems versus slip on can yield more HP/torque....is this correct?
4.) Are there better exhuasts out there that will get me closer to 120/120 and sound like what I'm looking for?
I'm looking for some suggestions from folks who have had various exhausts, Dynoed by a competent tech, with the timing wheel on their Cross Country Tour, as well as, other well informed folks on this forum.
Thanks for your time and input.
