Hello all, from AZ 2 Weeks, 1 Day ago  
Hello Everyone! So a little about me, I'm currently enlisted in the Marine corps and I am stationed in Arizona. It is hot here. I bought a 2000 Roadstar Silverado 1600 to be my main transportation. But when I got on it to ride, she was not nearly as hard-pulling as I was expecting from a 1600. So, I'm here now to see what people have done to bump up their horsepower and torque on their bikes, and to get it all done myself! Happy riding!

Good luck on your performance quest. I suspect there may be a problem with the bike. Some examples of "performance problems" may help the folks here to help you.

AND from San Diego, CA.

Limited options for doing anything on this bike, without a big bore kit.

Get rid of the AIS, port the manifold, get a free flowing air cleaner, a two in to one exhaust, and make sure it is jetted properly.

Easiest way to quicken your Roadie is to install a 31 tooth front pulley. Thank you for serving our great country.

Representing Scorpion Gulch, Arizona. There are many used 600cc bikes that will run circles around any Road Star. These bikes are cruisers. Perhaps you should consider a different type of bike if more speed is your concern.
