Nodakbassmaster is right. 85 hp at the rear tire for a stock VTX1800.
It is easy to pick up another 10 horsepower by changing you
airbox and exhaust pipes and you can pick up a few more with
a fuel manager. To get more than that gets really expensive.

85RWHP. Not too shabby. Do you happen to know what the torque would be?

I did a dyno drag race and was getting 129 hp on the rear wheel. That is with the heads being worked, the air box was changed pipes and a power comander. All those harleys that went up against me left very upset that the green machine beat them lmao

Yeah, sorry to burst your bubble, but those dyno drags add a lot to the hp ratings. I did the Terresi dyno truck and got 119hp and like 130 torque. On a real dyno, I had only 99hp and 114 torque. Dyno's numbers can be manipulated very easy

I am very disappointed, I thought my 1800 had more power than that.

I'm diissapointed too. I guess the shaft drive really does eat up hp. A friend has a Softail with the 96 in it and I bet he could out run me and get better gas mileage while doing it.

Oh well, my VTX isn't going anywhere anytime soon, it's fast enough. I'm still satisfied even though I'm starting to sound like those 88ci riders.

The only dyno that really matters is the one in your seat.
