That is exciting Hal... getting close to being done... :bigthumbsup:
It caught me by surprise cause I had told him not to rush as I had some other parts being done. My exhaust isn't done and my seat is up in Canada being redone. So I bought another seat on E-bay and I hope it shows today.

Well, you said:
We want 140HP (at the rear wheel) without going into the block and without using any artificial chemicals.
But I said:
1. Dyno bike before removing the engine = 0 HP
2. Remove stock clutch to install new high performance clutch = 0 HP
3. Engine-increase compression by 1 point = 2.2 HP
4. Install new cams = 2.8 HP
5. Port, polish and totally go over the cyliner heads and valves = 3.3 HP
6. Install pair valve covers = 0.9 HP
7. Power Commander with MAP = 4.6 HP
8. Install new wave front brake rotors = 0 HP
9. Install new air intake system (done) = 6.4 HP
10. Install new 2 into 1 pipe-JR style with a twist = 4.5 HP
11. Other small tricks yet to be decided = 1.2 HP
(12.) Better weather conditions for dyno run = 2.8 HP

27.5 HP for mods PLUS 118.82HP existing Dyno Run EQUALS 146.32 HP.

I can't find the key. I may have to push it to Daytona.
Hmmmm, well.......one horsepower = 33000 ft/lbs per minute (according to engineer James Watt - you know, light bulbs and steam engines? He also invented the horsepower term - J R 's probably got a better resume than him though ;) :joke: ) , soooo......which is 33lbs moved 1000ft per minute if you are a horse. Hal , unfortunately (or maybe fortunately) is NOT a horse, so this is the hard part - how many feet can Hal move 33lbs in one minute (as compared to a "horse") *? Hal I am going to guess......about a tenth as far as a horse......so lets go with .10 horsepower if you push..... hope you work out regularly, that 109 is over 700 lbs gassed up :eek:

Just having some fun, looking forward to seeing it complete , Hal..... J R just a friendly reference to you as well, no harm intended..... :bigthumbsup:

Well the better question is how many miles can Hal push a Honda VTX1300 without having a heart attack?

The day after Hurricane Wilma we had three cars with no gas and a VTX1300 that was not on reserve yet. I rode it to the office to check things out and on the way home I ran out of gas. But I could see my house across the lake but I had to go down about a half-mile and turn into the gate and then another half-mile back to the house. Luckily one of my neighbors saw me pushing it and loaned me some gas. But that was a workout. So how many mice-power is that???

without going over each individually as they will all work together I say: 28.5 total HP gains (hopefully the port and polish job is a good one)

so final number shall be 118.42 + 28.5 = 146.92 HP at the wheel... Now where is my Power Commander? LOL...
