Shaved heads? No way, not on these engines (or any engine with gear drive cams).
You shave the heads, you alter cam gear teeth mesh.
You will destroy your cam gears in no time.

You forgot the 14" extended swingarm with a 240 rear tire and lowering kit.
That's good for an extra 20 HP.

And chrome wheels and polished frame is good for another 10 HP. And lots of spikes around the windscreen and bar ends and well..just everywhere.

And a flaming day-glow paint job with lots of glitter and skulls is good for another 10 HP.

And for sure, don't forget to remove one of the front brake rotors (they're only dead weight after all).
Oh, and a molded in flat screen TV/GPS/DVD player in the fuel tank.

I think if he did all this, that bike should be good for at least 200 HP.

We be bad uh-huh.

Can't be worse than my buddy who is just about to drop $3000/$4000 on a complete sound system for his Harley bagger...two 7" subs no less than 4 mids and 2 tweets and a couple of amps to power that. All in a custom setup...lol I can't wait to ride with him this season.

That sounds like money well spent, no pun intended.

As they say 99% of Harley's ever sold are still on the road,

1% actually made it home... now he'll have a nice sound with no wind noise to ruin that 70's rock band as he sits at the side of the road looking all cool and shit waiting for the tow truck

my wife sells my bike for what
I told her it cost.
