    What's the Horsepower of a stock 2013 FLHR? I thought they were around 70,but I read an article saying 100.

    You're in luck! Stock numbers are impossible to come by as far as I can tell but I have in my posession a copy of the June 2012 Cycle World magazine and they did a full test on the 2012 FLS Softail Slim with the TC 103engine, factory stock. It's rare that they do full tests on HD's and I lucked out because I was curious about my 2012 Fat Bob. Here's their numbers:

    Corrected RWHP 67.4 @ 4800 rpm (corrected to sea level performance)
    Corrected RWTQ 88.4 @ 3150 rpm (corrected to sea level performance)

    1/4 mile 12.96 seconds @ 100.45 mph
    0-30 mph 1.4 sec
    0-60 mph 4.2 sec
    0-90 mph 9.4 sec
    0-100 mph 12.5 sec
    Top gear time to speed 40-60 = 6.2 sec, 60-80 = 7.2 sec (bet it would be way better in 5th gear)
    top speed 115 mph
    high/low/avg mpg, 37, 36, 36
    There's a bunch of other specs if anyone is interested.

    Also, keep in mind that the "B" motors supposedly have a little less hp and tq because of the counterbalance mechanism. I think I read somewhere that it amounts to 1 or 2 foot pounds and hp. It's annoying how they give tq and hp numbers from the crank to make the numbers bigger, an enduring auto manufacturer trick too in my humble experience.

    Stage 1 and dyno you can get a whopping 80/100 like I did.
