I personally like running the champions used in the destroyer once they are tuned...for tuning them I like having an electrode though...

Talking to Jason about my experience's thus far with the turbo. Did a roll-on from 55mph to about 105mph in fifth gear last night past the turn off to my subdivision...it was still pulling hard and smooth when I got out of it. Opened the gap on the plugs this morning and took it out for another 100+ mph blast...I'm going to get arrested on this damn thing lol.

Was telling Jason the hardest thing for me so far was judging rpm. I quickly hit the rev-limiter down low before I think I'm even close...surprises me everytime. This motor is so quiet and smooth it is deceptive just how fast it is accelerating.

HOF - you gotta get a tach buddy! One of the best things I added to my bike.

We are putting on a SE shiftlight/tach... they were on back order and have just been recently released... 883 gearing makes for short gear changes too... woulda never thought I'd suggest gearing a 883 more like a 1200, I've suggest going with 883 gearing on12's but never go the other way till now... gonna send HOF a buell rear pulley as well to try that out some

Agreed... brakes are something not to be proud of with stock sportsters, much less bikes that move. I'm sure if HOF hasn't thought about brakes yet he is now... especially once he's running 14psi...

I hear good things about folks using the xr12 brakes and the vrod brakes. Personally I'm going to have a larger rotor made and switch to a zx10 caliper

No upgrades other than braided line up front. I have a four-piston caliper for the front I have tried in the past, but was never able to get it properly bled. I can tell the difference between this bike and the Roadster, but it really isnt all that bad. Then again, what do I know about stopping lol...

I have noticed that when shifting thru the gears I hear a slight "pshh" sound, kind of like I hear on the turbo'd import cars...is that the boost escaping? I would'nt mind if it was a little louder along with some more whisteling sound.

I have ZX 10r calipers on my Interceptor Jason. They are a good caliper, rigid and most importantly they have 4 pads instead of one for each side of the rotor. The 4 pads have twice as many leading edges and as a result they have more initial bite which is important.

I will be experimenting with a trick Master cylinder on the Buell in the next few weeks that I think may really boost up a single brake system, but it will only work well if the caliper is super rigid. I will let you know how it works out.
