"trading for something bigger"

Seriously?

An IH is nimbler & faster than most Big Twins, will ride circles around them & has a better power-to-weight ratio than any garbage wagon could ever pray for.
And that's in stock trim.

You either love Sportsters or you don't --- but don't fall for that old trading-up nonsense.

Want smoother highway riding on an ironhead?
Bump the trans sprocket up to a 23 or 24-toother.
Between that & the stock 51-tooth drum sprocket out back you'll be smilin while hauling ass on the interstate. :D

Most guys who complain about an ironhead's freeway ride, or only use them as bar-hoppers, are usually running a MUCH smaller front sprocket which makes for a buzzy-as-hell ride that'll rattle the fillings out of your teeth. :eek:
