I haven't found any good videos of the stryker put up against a Harley with either the 103 or 109 engine was just curious to know if the stryker is faster than most Harleys on the road. My buddy has the Harley Roadking police interceptor bike it has the 103engine and my stryker seems to keep right up with it. My stryker isn't broken in yet so we haven't got to line them up yet. Has anyone got to race a Harley ?

the stryker will take most hardleys out there, not sure about the vrod but that is not really a hardley that is a porsch engine and design, a guy i work with has a harley that would probly take my stryker but he has over 10k into the engine and puts down 108 at the rear wheel on the dyno. not sure what my bike dynos at i have the LA choppers XXX intake, cobra fi2000r programer, and the V&H staggered slash cut exhaust.

Sad to say, but my wife's FLS Slim with a 103 wins right now. I have the cobra down turn pipes but a stock intake. I think that a better air breather and the fi2000 will make all the difference.

Wow 10K in an engine alone. I know its possible but still blows my mind.
One goofy saleswoman hit the nail on the head 2 decades ago when she said to my wife "The difference between men and boys, the price of their toys..."

To be fair though, 9k of it is probably just to keep the oil from dumping all over the pavement. :D

Oh yeah one of my buddies has his HD parked in my garage temporarily and it has leaked oil in one spot and some other kind of fluid in another spot. I told him he's gonna have to get that piece of **** out of my garage before the whole floor is oily. Lmao
