Can anyone chime in that has the full 108 or 110 kit and has either drag raced by themselves on a track or raced their friends how they did? I would think with around 110 rwhp and 135 rw torque they should be able to whoop most of the above listed muscle cruisers? Maybe not including a vmax. Anyone want to chime in? As long as the above listed bikes don't also have engine work done i dont see them winning? Am I wrong?

He doesn't want to race. He's asking a question to us to help him with an answer.

If he did however want to race he has access to a Vmax anyways...

If you want to race,why don't you just buy a 2nd gen VMax?
Someone seems cranky today ;)
Anyways I was just curious seeing how the 110 warriors seem to be absolute torque monsters and I dont think any of those bikes bone stock would have a chance. Again except the vmax, and yea casey you're right I've ridden the vmax a lot and I know its fast just not fun "torquey" fast. And everytime I race my friend and his vmax its not nearly as bad as I always thought (my loss that is :D ) and yes hes a very experienced rider and has owned vmaxs since the mid 90s

+1 ^^^^^^^^^^^^ he is a good friend and does not want to upset you. A well ridden Vmax will completely own a Warrior. Period. Not even a contest. I like my Warrior but we should be realistic. PS - If you hang tight in a race with another friend on a Diavel he is also being nice.

putting the diavel and first fen vmax in the same category is definitely a stretch but when i say he doesnt win by much i mean he's not like absolutely gone like an r1 or zx14 or whatver

I have both a 2009 warrior and a 94 VMax, granted my warrior isn't punched out to 108 or 110, but I don't think either would touch the Max. I could be wrong, but I have spanked HD fat boys that have had serious motor work with my Max. I think off the line a 102 might, 108 or 110 probably get the jump on a Max, but by the time you get to third gear the v4 in the max is going to start pulling away from the warrior in my opinion.

yeah well most of the races i've done with him didnt go much past 80 or 90 mph so maybe thats why it seemed like it wasnt by much

I have an 2009 V-Max, 200 hp at the tire. Bike is a beast, leave the line at 3500 rpms, get the clutch out asap, go WOT and say good buy to anything on 2 wheels. Tops out at 170 or so, which means some of the big sport bikes will pull you after the 1/4 mile. The ZX14 if setup right will stay right next to a V-Max, but it is harder to launch and not as comfortable.

Now my Warrior with the Speed Star stage 1V is fast for what it is, now with NOS it is even more fun to ride. I have been out all weekend beating on my friends Harleys, they are not liking me today. . . .

Only issue is I need to refill the bottles.
