I guess I am a minority of one in the biker world of millions, but I do not get it.  I use the upper 25% of my power range maybe less than one-half of a percent of the time - almost never.  ...

I like to twist the wick but have no idea when I could recoup my investment in a Stage 3 package. We do mostly back roads and twisties and the stock 111 has plenty of power for my needs. If I spent more time on the slab it might make a little more sense.

I too mostly Ride the hills and twisties and running from 60 to 75 mph majority of the time. 

The Stage Two Performance Cams, Catless Jackpot and TAB Slip-ons setup with a PVCX tune from FuelMoto is all I need for my 2015 Chieftain at this time.

Even if I wanted to consider this, it is not compatible with my 2014 Thunderstroke. And I have no plans of buying another bike, as mine is the best bike of all.....IT IS PAID FOR!!  :)

I am sure the sound and performance is something most of us would like. But, it's the age old...cost vs. benefit decision.

My set-up is like yours except for the cams. Iíd like to do the 585 Lloydz cam & buy that TB & intake manifold off of the Big Bore kit. Otherwise Iím pretty happy with the 111. Unless someone pulls up next to me at a light with a 116 just like the video clip. Lol.

With a 20% hp gain and 15% torque gain, it would basically be what I got on my stage 2 Indian setup.

 8) I did the Stage 1, Cams, and Reinhardt exhaust.  ;D I have no need for the 113.  ::) However, I am certainly not opposed to this upgraded performance. :)
Peace and All Good!

If Iím not mistaken itís s power gain over & about the stg. 2 set up.

 "itís that Iím retired now and donít have near the income I used to. But I also sleep Ďtil 11 everyday and donít do anything I donít want to do... except eat vegetables"

When you retire, you don't have to eat veggies?  Brilliant! 8)
