Default The VIC SHOP

So after a year I got my money together and rode 9 hours in rain to get to Adel, IA. Got a hotel and was at the VIC shop at 7:30am the next day. Cams, PCV, Timing Wheel, 1/4 turn throttle and then Rylan did his magic on the dyno.

WOW! Looks like the same bike but WOW! Major jump in power and feel. The bike is awesome fun to ride and it was a true pleasure to watch those guys work. I kept saying (sometimes outloud) "boy am I glad I am not doing this!" Great to support an American small business and guys that know what they are doing.

I was concerned that the changes would hurt my gas mileage but it improved it! I think mainly because the bike is tuned to perfection.

I am not getting anything from Rylan for writing this. Just want to let all know that if you are not close to NY then head to Adel, IA and get the work done. Life is too short to ride a stock bike!

Thanks to Happy Dan Larson for urging me to get the cams!
