What would be the difference in power, if any, between a 1200/1250 conversion and a stock 2017 1200 Sportster, such as a Roadster or a 48?

BTW, per your recommendation, I just ordered some Rush slip-ons (w/1.75" baffle).

Thanks, once more.
Typically a conversion bike is quicker than a factory 1200, simply because of the 883 gearing.  Most 1200XLs with high flow AC, pipe and tune will make 70-75ish TQ/HP. Add port work, compression, cams, etc, and the numbers go up with the cost.

Not looking for outright speed our biggest HP numbers... Just more grunt and a lumpier/better sounding motor.

So the cruiser kit is definitely not what I'm looking for. Thanks for the info though. Cheers
