Stock HP

Stock HP is about 64. S&S 96 puts about 94 to the wheel with a carb with 96 ft/lbs of torque. S&S 113 puts about 124 hp to the wheel with a carb.

I'm not a big fan of Harleys lame attempt to make a "Big Inch" motor. My mildly modified EVO 80 is making 80 HP.

Some better exhaust would have given you some more HP. Those are pretty, but not the best for generating HP.

As far as HP being meaningless, I don't know about that. I think it's just been ingrained in everyone's heads over the years since Harleys typically don't produce much HP, but produce decent torque that that's the way is should be. Not true, a good balance of HP and torque is the way to go, like the S&S Motors. But they are typically built with better components in order to handle the extra power.
