I remember reading that there was a Big Bore kit that has been discontinued. It may have been that big. If I remember correctly you had to do some case cutting and there were some other issues that made them undependable so they quite selling them. I don't remember the exact size and who made them.

"Husband died, selling for his widow" that is your clue that it is a scam.

Therefore, he knows NOTHING about the details of the bike other that it's the best one on CL.

I've seen a LOT of Roadstar cylinders & those look bone-stock to me.
There isn't enough room to bore out stock cans to 2000cc & even if there was, you'd completely remove the plating & ruin the cylinders in the process.

I'm calling BS on that one unless they can produce paperwork to prove it & I talk to the dealer who supposedly did the work.

... and what's with the angle iron brackets?
Home made towbar or funky bag brackets?

This fits in here, right? I mean, I can make this fit in here ... right?

I was figuring it was BS, but I knew that there were big bore kits out there but not sure what size. Found a post on here describing the big bores and they weren't 2000cc. Not even close.
I was thinking about calling on it just to call BS, but decided I have better things to do with my time like watching the grass grow.

Re:Is there such a thing as a 2000cc RS? 4 Weeks, 1 Day ago  
I met a guy with a 2004 Road Star and he was telling me how the PO spent gobs of money tricking out the motor. We were at a bike shop and he was talking trash about Harleys and how souped up his bike was and Harleys could not keep up. He did not know how informed I was as per my knowledge of the Big Bore mod so I kept my mouth shut. I inspected his bike and it had a stock carb, fuel pump, and nothing remotely modded. Stock air filter, AIS still installed etc. etc.

I was running my stock 2006 with 31 tooth pulley as my only mod, so I wanted to compare his bike to mine. He Swore left right and center his motor was tricked out and let me take it for a blast. To say the least, my bike was peppier than his bike. Most likely due to the 31 th pulley on mine. Why he spouted so much BS to this day is beyond me. When i returned from the ride he was expecting me to be super impressed with the bikes performance. I told him i liked his bike and left it at that. I did appreciate him letting me ride his bike though. Maybe the guy he bought it from lied to him, I will never know the real story.

Sometimes people do not know any better not knowing Road Stars, others think you do not know Road Stars.

In the case of the advertisement who knows. My 2003 has a Big bore kit as I was given several boxes of engine parts, pistons etc, so I have evidence of the mod. Without the evidence and receipts, I would not have bought the bike. I guess it is buyer beware. I find it hard to think someone would intentionally deceive another person, but in reality, it happens. I am too trusting and think everyone has honor and truthfulness.
