you'll need a new EFI unit, air cleaners, and

Most of the Jap bikes are assembled in the US, not to mention sold and serviced by Americans. In fact, the Honda Goldwing, up until a few years ago was completely built in the US, using more US parts than H-D. Harley still uses bits and pieces of their motorcycles from manufactures over seas. Playing the "unAmerican" card, is just plain ignorant!

Am on my 10th Harley, 2003 Screamin' Eagle
1984 EVO was still ran strong after 20yrs, 100K when it showed a little blowby oil thru breather. Hated to sell it but cost me $7K-$5K =$2K or $100/year
Fastest bike I owned was a 1981 XR-1000 I donated to BOTT for Bartel's 1987 race season. Won its 1st race by over 2 Minutes!
Tom Sharp, the rider said it was better than he was. Heads/Carbs/Intake done by Branch FlowMetrics to achieve max. torque at any RPM
Tom said he could "miss a shift" and still pass guys either side
Speed in 170s but it got there in a hurry, like right NOW
