So I added COBRA SWEEPS, POWER COMMANDER, and THE COBRA AIRINTAKE. I dynoed' it at 79HP up from the stock 62hp. What do I need to do to get my bike to 100hp?
LOL... I believe you are right. The bike just looks badass so the sleeper effect doesnt really work with this bike.11Stryker said:Where does the Sleeper Effect come into play!!! Almost everyone that has walked over to see my bike cannot believe that it is only a 1300. Even most the HD duds think it is a modded Raider with a 1900. The bike is long and raked out at 41*. In no way is the bike seen as a sleeper unless another Stryker owner sees it and doesnt know Jack Didley about the mods that are attached to it!!
Agreed, but part of that includes a visually different Air Cleaner, and Audibly louder exhaust. Adding a Turbo or Blower or Nitrous would be visual also. About all that could be hidden is programmer, cam, or overbore.SR71 said:The power to wieght ratio of this bike is really good. If you can get 79 HP out of it even better. That is the equivelant of a camaro with 450 HP at the rear wheels.
Christopher said:The bike has plenty of power for me. But coming from a crotch rocket to the Stryker I do sometimes miss the adrenaline rush of more power. But I think I have that worked out. I plan on buying a Busa as a second bike. ;D
I will take this recommendation to the local tunning shop. Let's see what they quote me. any idea what type of HP gain I will have?Matt said:Easiest thing at this point would be to port the heads, match the trottle bodies to the intake and port the intake and exhaust manifolds. You can do all of that for about a grand without an issue. It's all about combusting that fuel man. The smoother the air gets in and out of ur motor with a high volocity the better it will burn.
I think that if your really trying to hit the 100HP, your going to find out that it will still be cheaper to sell and trade up. By the time you get it up to 100 HP, and that is if you can. I don't think you will. You can try boring out the heads and going larger pistons. The cost won't make sense. Your bike will still be worth the same amount as everyone else and we wouldn't have invested that kind of money in ours. Its like someone who owns a 71 Trans Am, has 20,000 into it and is asking 25,000. Its lost money.thegreyman said:Well looking back I should have just went with the raider. The stryker was my first bike. So I thought 1300cc was enough. After a month it wasnt. Thus came the initial mods which keep satisfied until recently. So yes I want more power, but at this point I love the way my murdered out stryker looks. I have invested to much time and money on it and do not want to start all over again with a new bike. And yes, the SLEEPER effect is also cool.
That being said, what can I do?
