I live in the desert so it was gear the 883 or buy a bigger bike. Mostly open road. The thing is I like the new gearing even when I'm beating around town.

Under the same conditions the hemi chamber will typically have higher engine temps while making less power. The hemi chamber will also be more susceptible to detonation. The difference is how well/efficiently the mixture in the chamber burns. A more efficient burn typically gives lower engine temps, lower cylinder head temps and lower exhaust gas temps.

A good comparison is the pre-Evo hemi chambered 1200 vs the bath tub chambered Evo 1200. The Evo's run better, cooler and are less prone to detonation.
That's what I wanted to know! Thanks. If I understand this correctly, the bathtub bath tub chamber gives more efficiency which results in longer engine life.
