Next year.... lol.

Thank you Brother. For the time being I've settled with the Basic 1275 kit. (But... we do know... it never ends... lol).

IF, I need to get rid of some adrenaline... I always have my Big Dog K9 ... she´s not exactly OEM specs neither!!! She REALLY GOES!!!

Those aren't the heads you want anyway. Doubt you'll find the 04+ 1200 heads that cheap.

Does it apply to conversions with stock heads?

i was referring at stockish...
a conversion sure like hell had a fatter tune and a free ac and exhaust

now
speaking about my fellow countrymen
they hardly bought a Sporty to smoke other bikes... to do so is better to buy a Superbike...
here people bought Sporties for two main reasons

- to be cool... cooler than other riders
- to have fun... a different fun than that provided from metric bikes... i belong to this mainstream... i would say not many of us in Italy...

Default Only 1200

I rode a a solid mount. 883 once. It felt weak and out of breath fast. Only way I’d buy one is either to learn and trade it in a year or have idea to immediately do conversion. I think the heads and gearing are not the same as a 1200 so it be 1200 for me.
