I'm close to converting my '03 sporty to a 1250 cc from Hammer Performance. I'm hoping to be pushing 90 hp before Sturgis. What are some tips and tricks to squeeze out as much hp as I can, keep it reliable, and do the build well?
I'd rather laugh with the sinners than cry with the saints.
If you go bigger, it will burn more fuel...and with a small fuel tank and a distance like Sturgis, you will be stopping more often. The performance you gain , you will be sacrificing fuel economy.
Can you get 90hp from a Sportster? I'm sure, how deep is your wallet?

By the time they found out what it was both cylinders were destroyed, luckily the indy had a couple they gave em at a good price. Rebored and I believe they did S/E too. This was a fiasco that went on all summer. That engine was torn down so many times if you walked toward with a wrench chit would start falling off, just so it wouldn't be wrenched on again (just joking on this part).
