Want to make your Harley run harder? Does your bagger grunt instead of go when the hill gets steep? Or, do you fancy dining on a crotch rocket or two? Whether you have an Evo, TC88, or V-Rod, this book will show you just how to extract the maximum performance from your V-Twin. Performance modifications are arranged in co-ordinated packages -- improvements to intake, exhaust, cams, ignition, and displacement -- changes that work well together. They range from a set of simple bolt-on modifications up to big-inch racers. The packages start with Stage One, bolt-on improvements that are economical and convenient to apply, but will give your machine noticeably better driveability and punch. Advancing to Stage Two may require some machine work, but you'll be rewarded with greater performance improvement. Stage Three engines -- 100 cubic inches and up -- lead to 100+ horsepower, with ground-ripping performance! The ultimate performance modifications include turbocharging, supercharging, nitrous oxide, and exotic fuels -- both alcohol and nitromethane. There's something for everyone, even the true speed junkie. To handle the increased power, this book also describes modifications to suspension and chassis and a drag racer's primer. A convenient list of sources for aftermarket parts lets you get started quickly with your own project. Numerous colour photographs of bikes, parts, and racing bring the text to life. Covers: Evolution, Twin-Cam, and V-Rod engines. Modification packages match intake, exhaust, cams, ignition, and displacement for best performance; Choose Stage One through Stage Three modifications, according to your performance objectives; Turbocharging, supercharging, nitrous oxide, and special fuels.

Go on a 60-year ride with Harley-Davidson's Sportster Things got a little weird in the American motorcycle industry after World War II. People hungered for new motorcycles, buying just about everything manufacturers could build. But on rare occasions a manufacturer produced a machine that nobody wanted. Such was the case with the Harley-Davidson Model K. The Model K had most of the features buyers wanted in a modern machine, like hand-operated clutches, foot-operated shifters, and cool-running aluminum heads, but it lacked perhaps the most important technological upgrade: a modern overhead-valve valve-train design. The Model K retained the antiquated side-valve design because of arcane AMA racing rules written when Harley-Davidson and Indian competed head-to-head on American racetracks, but by 1952 Indian was on its last legs. This should have made the Model K a massive sales success. What nobody counted on was the British bike invasion. Thanks to their modern overhead-valve engines, the lightweight British bikes humiliated the side-valve Harleys on the track and on the street. Upgrades to the Model K didn't help; Harley finally relented and introduced a new overhead-valve middleweight for the 1957 model year. Dubbed the Sportster, it was everything the Model K was not. More importantly, it was faster than the British competition. Thus began the Sportster's sixty-year reign. Harley-Davidson Sportster: Sixty Years tells the complete Sportster story. Noted Sportster expert Allen Girdler covers all the bikes--the XLCH, Caf_ Racer, XR1000, XLX, 883, Iron, Forty-Eight, Seventy-Two, and Nightster--that have made the Sportster one of the most iconic motorcycles on earth.
