    Mine is fast fully dressed I can't imagine the grunt of the MT01 that is easily a couple hundred lbs lighter.

      Impressive numbers. So with the Patrick Racing heads it would certainly make 90+ horsepower. Seems like that would be a cheaper alternative to the MT-01 motor. And it would fit in a Roadstar frame.

        Just in case anyone is interested I found that the mt-01 engine has a hydraulic clutch located on the right side of the bike

          If you want a faster Road Star... Buy a Stratoliner, Road liner, or Raider.. Hell a Vstar 1100 and RSV are both faster...

          If you want to spend $9k to make your bike faster send it to Patrick Racing and have them do everything to it. Get 95ho to the tire and 110lb torque. That way when EVERY SINGLE SPORT BIKE MADE SINCE 1992 beats you it won't be by 100 bike lengths just 50 bike lengths... Lol

          Seems like a project that would take lots of time effort $ trial and error to end up a custom somewhat butchered bike that likely will never quite "be right" and have almost zero resale value.

          For the sake of both time/money why not grab a used bike that someone has dumped money into to make it fast (I. E. Turbo Raider with about 170hp) for $8-10k and actually have a fast cool bike?

          I totally understand wanting to do your own thing but man.... Got to have a plan and some realistic goals in mind... Time frame... Budget... Etc otherwise it just sits in the garage and you loose interest
