I have a 2012 T100 Bonneville. It is a beautiful motorcycle, but I wish it had more low end torque. Can someone tell me if there are ways to do that. Remapping, new exhaust pipes? I am wondering if I would have liked the 270 engine better, such as in the scrambler. Again, I am asking for more low end torque, not just torque, so I don't think boring would be the answer. This isn't of life or death importance, I am just curious, and would like to know what others think. Thanks in advance.
....I am asking for more low end torque, not just torque, so I don't think boring would be the answer.
Actually, for getting low end torque that doesn't steal from the rest of the power curve, adding displacement is the only answer.
Cams would help some without trashing the top end. But there really is no replacement for displacement (aside from forced induction that is ).
And I really do love my added displacement!!
The cheapest and simplist way is to fit a 17 tooth front sprocket, although this will lower top speed and increase fuel consumption: there's nothing for nothing.
... Admittedly, all dyno runs were done with pipes tuned to make HP, not torque...so the outcome could be different given pipes tuned to capitalize on the low end differences in the camshafts....
