Lance had custom pistons in his.I think and don't quote me on this but he used vn700 rods and pistons with a slightly different wrist pin location and had it bored maximum over bore,it takes a lot of measuring to get your clearances right at TDC,I also think he said he had some different cams ground as well,I never rode with him but there are several on here who did,that thing ran like a scalded cat ,is the word.I've got one Vulcan and I'm buying another. I want to keep one stock and mod the other. I like the ride of the thing but I wish it had more punch. Moneys not that big of a problem if its to improve the bike the way I want to. I asked the question just to see if anyone had done it or knew info on it. I am going to buy a bigger bike this summer but like I said. I would like more out of one of my Vulcans.
Ladies and Gentlemen, I present the $18,000 Vulcan 750...now a 1100cc. With just enough extra power to shear off your drive splines with just a twist of the throttle. Not as fast as any current 1000cc sportbike, but enough horses to frighten old men.sorry ,but you can get any kind of cam you want custom ground,but you are correct no one sells an aftermarket hot cam,and he said money really wasn't a problem.
Typical reply,I was answering the man's original question,but you have to cop an attitude.Ladies and Gentlemen, I present the $18,000 Vulcan 750...now a 1100cc.

Bike still weighs 500+ pounds, but soon another $10,000 will get you a custom titanium frame, triple tree, and composite carbon fiber wheels to bring the weight down to that of an average Ducati.
Seroiusly... Do an earshave, rejet, add some nicer pipes and save the money for a more suitable platform.
Yes,thank you,I just like you like to yank peoples chain on occasion and occasionally you leave one hanging over the plate and I have to swing at it.Don't think I was "copping an attitude". ... Just joking around.
And when I installed the next oversize piston in my dirt bike, the thing I used to widen out the bore was called a "hone" .... Sure one could spend the money and take it to a machine shop where they would "bore" it out for you, but those of us that did our own work couldn't afford a machine tool to do this.
But yes , your right. Most folks don't hone, bore or anything but take their cylinder to a shop to get it done... And by that your terminology is correct.
The point was already answered that you really can't go much bigger than stock oversize.... But yes you can throw alot of money at anything and do what you want.... The question posed by me and others was that we didn't see the point....we did not say the OP shouldn't.
That's OK... You keep swinging whenever you see the opportunity. I know I can go a bit far sometimes and not make it clear enough that I'm just lobbing a few in for fun. I just figure after all the years everyone knows not to take anything I "seem" to go off on seriously... Untill I actually write "seriously..."Yes,thank you,I just like you like to yank peoples chain on occasion and occasionally you leave one hanging over the plate and I have to swing at it.
