Those are quite respectable numbers for a Vegas. I bet you can easily bring the front end up or spin the back tire at will.

Keep an extra belt or two around. Methinks you will be needing them unless you switch over to a chain which I think would be a good idea for your bike. More maintenance but won't let you down right in the middle of a good strong pull.

I think the belt is supposed to be good for up to 120/120 hp/tq. I suppose if you don't drop the hammer down all at once; your belt may last a while.

I am still running the OEM belt drive and have had no trouble. I have 2500 miles on my Highball and believe me, there are MANY 'strong' pulls on it during that time. I am running 9lbs boost on it but have never had it dyno'd so can't tell you what numbers I am getting. I would guess somewhere in the 140-150 range at the wheel.
I recommend you put the chain conversion money into more sweet upgrades!cheers

that is awesome numbers!

How does it ride now? Have you done any drags with it? curious to know what the quarter mile time would be on something like that.

Sad to say I have nothing to qualify all that power... no dyno sheets, no 1/4 mile times... nothing (well, except for the huge grin on my face!). I am coming to the conclusion that I work too much.

You can go to my Youtube page (in my sig.) and watch a pull from 10mph to 100mph that doesn't seem to take much time. I know that the bike is doing better than that now that I have the boost controller in and dialed at 9lbs.

I am hoping to be able to post some real numbers this summer but don't like to speculate so will have to wait for the data. My guess at the current HP is based on the dyno sheet on Trask's website and thats only a 100cu/in running a little less boost than I am.

Nice numbers, but be careful what you wish for. I ride a 1979 HD, just 80" motor and it makes over 80RWHP. I have a buddy who builds 142" shovelheads making 150RWHP on 87 octane pump gas. That ain't no "sally" bike :)

Neither is a V-Rod with the same mods.

Dyno numbers are in.

I was down to Arizona Bike Week in April and had Trask Performance dyno my Highball (they designed the turbo kit). The bike is 145 HP and 144 ft/lbs torque. Over 7000 miles on it now and still no issues with the belt.

One thing to mention though is that both the power curve and the torque curve are very linear as the bike revs through the RPM range. All that power does not hit the wheel all at the same time like it would with a built motor or nitrous which may be easier on the belt.:D
