poppamark, what I'm talking about is the amount of air that the bike can let in is limited by the way the air intake is set up due to the frame. Only so much air is going to get in there.
Half Crazy, since you brought up Lloyds, I'm going to have to stick by the answer given in the FAQ on his website.....
Will doing "performance" engine work void my warranty?
Good Question. Yes, By deciding to do performance work you are choosing to sacrifice your warranty coverage for harder acceleration. We believe an informed decision is most important and with our experience, we can advise you of the pros and cons of any modification you are considering. After all, the decision to do so is solely up to you.
I've spent way too many $$ over the years on various cars and bikes to know that once you get into internal engine mods, factory warranties start to get dicey at best. If you have a good dealer and your saddlebag hinge breaks on your Vic with a 116" will they fix it? More than likely, but there is a whole lot of talk about the dealer network being in its infancy to put it politely and Mother Victory not always going out of her way to assist on warranty work.
If there were a mechanical warranty issue and I was the guy at Victory in charge of deciding if I should honor it on a modified bike, you would need one hell of an argument to pit your mechanic, no matter how good he is, against my engineers who designed the bike. After all, the only argument they really need is that the bike was designed within certain tolerances and parameters, you intentionally exceeded those.
I'm not saying I agree with it, I'm just saying if warranty is an issue, don't start pulling the engine apart and modding it.
