There’s a new player in the Sportster big bore game. S&S Cycle’s new big bore Sportster conversion kit will bump up your 883cc up to 1,250.
Obviously there were always other options out there in the past. Riders are no longer limited between the Wiseco, Revolution Performance, Buell, or Harley-Davidson parts to kit up their 883cc Sportsters.
The S&S Cycle Sportster big bore conversion kit is good for Sportsters from 1986 through to 2014. In other words, it’s made to work with all evolution engines.
Performance changes are dramatic.
Within the same engine rev range (under 6,000 rpm), max torque increased from 47.3 to over 80, and max horsepower increased to over 90.
Performance further increases past 6,000 rpm, but lets be honest, that’s not the Sportster’s happy place. You can find out more info on S&S Cycle’s web page, here.
