    Hi, I currently own a 08' 883L Sportster and was curious about a certain kit to make my little 883 into a more powerful 1200. It just needs more ummf :)

    The kit I was looking at was the SE 883 to 1200 conversion kit since they lowered there price a bit on the kit its quite the eye catcher now. Although I'm a little skeptical about buying SE stuff because a lot of harley vets I know always bad mouth SE.

    What I was curious about was if this is a good option there are many other options I have read about such as using other companies like Buell, Thunderstorm, Weisco, etc.

    When I called the dealer they said I would be getting a increase of about 25-30 horsepower, this is decent but what I really want to do is double the horsepower. Now I'm aware of putting non HD stuff on a bike may void the warranty and is this really worth taking the risk if something gets messed up?

    Now my father and of course the dealer are all for me buying the SE kit but before I make a big decision I'd like to hear some opinions.

    In simple terms, what would be my best bet for this project?

    PS. I'd like to keep the price range below two thousand dollars thjanks!

    Understandable I think my best bet will be with SE as of right now its the cheapest (I can get it for $960) and not so complex as I will not be doing the work myself. My knowledge on Motorcycles is not very inclined as you could tell, just a youngin' that wants a little more kick.

    But more suggestions never hurt!
