I think the MoCo is just conservative on where they set their rev limits from the factory. Having an overly restrictive intake would make it difficult to accelerate at higher RPMs.That apparently means rev the limit was originally set based on intake airflow restrictions.
I'm as TORQUE RULES inclined as anybody, (on even days anyway,) but even with the LowRider reflashedGimme a break - any bike that needs to rev high has kinda missed the point anyways
Hmm. Sounded more sane and sensible before, didn't I?....the speeds and quickness implict to a motorcycle's size and power to weight ratio
can get you to a dangerous place double quick. Maybe the morgue.
Think twice about when it's safe to use a bike's quickness.
It appears that the only error I can find is that the pre-04 is 5300 rpm. I am simply stunned. I always considered myself pretty well versed in Sportster-dom as they have always been my favorite Harleys.I believe that the rev limits as set by the factory are:
TC88 -> 5500 (Dealer flash raises it to 6200)
TC96 -> 6200
Sportster -> 5200(pre '04 1200) - 5500(pre '04 883), 6000(04+) I believe dealer reflash takes it to 6800.
