    Find a dealer and take one out for a test drive , see if you like it .real world off the dealer floor HP is 110 - 112 stage 1 will get you 118-121. SE cam upgrade will get you 129-134.

    Have you checked the engine mounts? Also check the exhaust system and heat shields fo anything loose.

    your lugging the motor at those rpms - its not the same as the airheads that cruise at this rpm - the Vrod loves to rev - yes they are a little lumpy at low rpms, and yes you will see it in the mirrors to some extent, were the airheads are flat out at 5500-6000 (6500/7000 if its stage 2 or more) the Vrod is cruising at 90mph or at the very least mine does and its as smooth as anything and will still accelerate like its attached to the horizon with a large rubber band

    And the ability to rev might have something to do with the name of the engine: "The VR1000 Superbike race engine provided the cornerstone for development of the new Harley-Davidson engine, called the “Revolution.” The Revolution engine is still a v-twin … that’s where the similarities with the old OHV v-twin end. The new engine is an 1130cc 60º v-twin sporting 4 valves/cylinder, dual overhead cams, liquid cooling, and fuel injection. It revs to 9,000 rpm and produces 115 hp. Not bad … not bad at all!"
