Harley-Davidson engine expert Bill Rook has spent decades perfecting the art of building torque-monster V-twin Harleys. Rook’s goal always has been to go fast, but also to do so comfortably. Since high-end horsepower and low-end torque are mutually exclusive, this book focuses on real-world power: low-end torque.
Simply stated, torque accelerates your motorcycle to the desired speed: the more torque you have available, the faster you’ll get there. That’s where the real fun is, isn’t it? Torque over a wide rev range is the key to useable street performance.
From intake and exhaust tuning to cam selection, ignition and electrical modification to gearing changes, How To Build a Harley-Davidson Torque Monster explains how to put together a Harley that you can comfortably live with during the day but that will still smoke people at night.About the Author:
