    do the 883 28 tooth conversion, best thing I ever did when I had my 48. Woke it up as much as the cam/heads did IMO.

    Makes 5th gear more usable too. Only downside is it puts the speedo out a few km's/h out, easily fixed with a powervision or any other tuning tool with access to the VSS.

    I have one you can have for a pineapple, it's just a paperweight here.

     Change the speedo drive out of a 883 iron

    I'd rather just add 7.1% to the VSS table than get my hands dirty haha

    I nearly had my heart set on a Low Rider S, after riding one I'm more likely to drop $5000 into my 48 to bump up the power a little. That said,I have $2000 in the suspension of this bike, push the limits of Pirelli Night Dragons and surprise sports bike riders when we hit the local mountains.

    13" Ikons on the back. 2" over front suspension, Harley, but not for a 48 internals. Plus a few other things.
    The ZZR1100 had to push his limits to keep up on the way to Church.
    Kinda forgot about the stance a while ago, my Sportster isn't much of a 48 any more.

    Edit. Fuck phone, fuck auto correct and its help.

     Isn't the speedo drive the same?

     the speedo sensor picks up at gear box, so if a ratio change in rear drive to a lower gearing, your speedo will read a bit faster, if you can change the primary ratio lower. no change in speedo but I'm not sure if different ratio primary gearing for sporty. my 1200 carb Buell has 27 front Sproket my 03 1200 sporty has 29.

    Not sure about the older stuff. My bikes speedo calibration is just a number in a file. Unlike me old Suzuki that has a cable from the wheel.

    Not sure on the new model 48's but The Oldman conversion worked wonders on my front end.
    Should be able to search the site for it?

     I'm sure like cars they have different speedo drives to match front and rear pulleys

     They have a Vehicle Speed sensor (VSS) and it is a pain to get to.

    Just read your story and updates along the way which was good reading. Glad you're liking it and the trapp pipe has made a good difference to your midrange. 

    Surprised that you're running with no endcap at all as the trapp endcap is shaped a particular way to provide backpressure for low down torque. Was it dyno tested to see the difference between the open end cap and no end cap?

     thanks bud, i'm loving it, it's sooo much nicer to ride now! The S/E tune in it was based around the short shots and heavy breather, my changes threw it way out of whack.

     How much did you pay for the dyno and tune? I've got the S/E Supertuner as well, not sure if previous owner did any tune for it.

     Fred at precycle charged me $600 and was very thorough, it was on the dyno being strapped on when i left at about 9 and he took it for a test ride after 5pm and it shows.

     Wow that's a good price for a full tune and dyno run. I'll look him up. Am in Ormeau Hills but drive down to Fortitude valley for work everyday. Might ride in one day to drop the bike off for tune.

    the supertrapp looks good.
    how many disc's,
    I used a supertrapp with a 95 inch twin cam tuning from 12 to 18 disc's, but my system you could see the disc's, I had race open endcap. a friend had one on a dresser with the closed encapsulated needed 21 disc's,  when you tune with closed end need to add more disc's, but can gain torque taking disc's out.
    does it have finer glass packing and can you repack silencer.

    Nice job on the seat, it matches the rest of the styling perfectly.
