Ivan's mod question
I've had my Vaquero for almost 3 years, it has 22500 miles. I was coming from a VTX 1800, I felt the difference in acceleration but got used to it. This weekend I rented a HD Electra Glide, which has a very similar engine (103 ci, 1687cc). It also had a Rineheart muffler (weird for a rental). Anyway, this is the first time I ride a HD. The vibration was awful, I thought that the engine was about to stall, I kept applying the throttle until finally I got used to it. But accelerating was a different story, the engine was so smooth and powerful. Could not believe the difference in acceleration. Then I returned it and got back to my Vaquero. I kept thinking of the difference, I thought that maybe I'm too shy with the throttle or maybe the "digital throttle" won't open the butterfly so much. So I tried to accelerate hard and the acceleration was better (still not the same) but the engine is very rough, after 3000 RPM it vibrates too much and there's a flat spot.
So I was wondering if the Ivan's mod fixes this, I've been thinking for a while about the mod, the problem I have is I don't want to be without the bike for a week, I use it for my daily commute.
