I did a power performance upgrade to my rebel. I went from 16hp to 100+HP.

Here are the instructions.
Step 1. Bought this.


Step 2. There is no step 2.

Pure genius! And probably quite cost effective too.. Nice bike!

Definitely prefer my Rebels to any other bike. I love my Rebels the way HD lovers love their rides. I don't even drive cars. Getting a lot of recommendations around town for where to get a tune up. I'm guessing a dealership's a bad idea?

MTC, they do decent work.

The dealerships tend to avoid anything over ten years of age, and even if they didn't there isn't enough money in the world to compensate for a Ride Now experience.
