In about two weeks Iíll finally get my bike on a dyno to see some numbers. Over last winter I had the throttle body punched out to 49mm, the Torque Tubes modified to work with the larger TB, added .495 cams and everything required to run them, also got head work done by Star Racing and added high compression (10.4:1) pistons.
Riding around at 3K rpm itís just a normal feeling bike to me,.. Around 3400-3500 the party starts and keeps pulling hard to 6K.
If you do all of that to a lightweight steel frame it should be ok without the extra displacement. Add those extra inches with everything else to a light steel frame and your bike will be an absolute monster. For the core frame bike I would just go with the extra displacement from the get go especially with those bikes being a heavier.
