The Dynojet® 250i chassis dynamometer shows what a potent package the S&S® 1250cc kit for Harley-Davidson® Sportster® models can be. This chart compares a stock 2009 883cc engine before and after the 1250cc kit was installed. Over twice the horsepower! In addition to the 1250cc kit with 5.5cc pop-up dome forged pistons, the test bike was equipped S&S slip-on mufflers, stock EFI throttle body with an S&S tuned induction system, S&S 600 cams, and stock cylinder heads CNC ported by S&S.
S&S cylinders match the fin profile on 1986-’03 cylinder heads. Although there is a slight difference in the fin profiles of S&S cylinders and stock 2004 –’14 cylinder heads (shown left), the look is generally not considered to be objectionable. You decide!
- Can not run stock 883 cylinder heads with this kit.
- The cylinder fin profile does not perfectly match the fins on 2004 and later stock heads, but the difference is not considered to be objectionable. See Photos.
- S&S does not recommend boring 2004 and later 883cc cylinders from 3" to 3-1/2" bore to increase engine displacement to 1200cc due to changes in factory cylinder and liner. A smaller O.D. liner and large chamfer on the bottom of the spigot make boring the 883 cylinder not possible. New cylinders are recommended.
