I just sold my bike for this XTZ 1000. My bike had a vtwin 996cc

Suzuki TL1000R - Wikipedia, the free encyclopedia

and 134 bhp...So..can we get the prowler to that number or close? Glam? Chris? Phat? come on someone can do it! I wonder since AC seems to have a relationship with suzuki if they borrowed "ideas" from that motor...

The cc's are there.Not so sure the stock cams are up to it.I don't know the numbers from them.Also this engine is designed for torque and midrange.That is not a big deal to get around.If you look at the intake ports and valve size there is a lot of room for big hp numbers.I am guessing that the rotating mass inside is pretty heavy from what i have seen.Not in person but on AC's website in parts.Not sure i would want to be the first one paying for the big numbers on a naturally aspirated one.It would not surprise me to see 100hp from this thing with cams, exaust,intake,and somemore fuel.

with all the heat problems (so far on the xtz) i tend to lean toward a charger instead of turbo...130 with 10lbs..hmmm that would probably put a good hurt on that motor...maybe 4-6 lbs to get some life out of it?

It would be an intercooled set up right? There are many ways to address the heat problems on the XTZ. I have not had enough time on my bike due to axle issues to se it overheat. I don't ride dunes yet but I will be out in the 115 degree AZ summer days going to Crown King....I know I am crazy.

The stack (oil cooler in front of the radiator) is something I think needs to be fixed. This is a common problem on a lot of vehicles where they become heat soaked and the air flow to the radiator is limited because of the oil cooler being in front of it. We could also plumb ram air ducts to the engine compartment to get some more air cooling to the motor. Simular to race car brake cooling ducts. I think we could use a larger diameter electric fan that has a cowl around it and maybe even a bigger and better radiator. Let's put our minds together an come up with some ideas.

950 cc's at 4lbs no intercooler=107.5 hp at the crank
950 cc's at 4lbs intercooled=109 hp at the crank
950 cc's at 6lbs no intercooler=115hp at the crank
950 cc's at 6lbs intercooled=120 hp at the crank
950 cc's at 12 lbs no intercooler=135hp at the crank
950 cc's at 12 lbs intercooled=152.5hp at the crank
950 cc's at 20lbs no intercooler=159.5hp at the crank

Sandchris,

Have you ever worked with Speedwerx? They have a cam available for the 1000 and I guess are working on a boondocker fuel controller with better programing capabilities
