Default I need hp recommendations

I'm ready to start adding power. Does anybody make race or performance Cams for this bike? What other engine mods should I look at. I would love to get atleast 150hp to the wheel. What are my options beside turbo.

Nitrous.....

I don't think anyone makes real performance stuff anymore for them. They were a 2 year model, 15 years ago, so there is not really a market. The best you can hope for is someone parting with some parts that are laying around.

The one to ask would be backdoc. I think he has a thread that's not too old selling some stuff.

Yeah I was hoping parts from a different bike might work. I will think about turbo but it will be expensive as hell because I can't build it and put it together myself. I just know how to do engine rebuilding etc. What about ported head with aftermarket exhaust I know I shouldn't compare with a car but I made over 50 hp with head, header work with a custom tune. No clue if it would help or hurt performance on small bike engines

My old 954 made 146HP/71TQ with a full Hindle exhaust and bmc race filter. Its not cheap to get more power from the 929/954 as very few companies make parts for them anymore. Just buying a full exhaust, power commander and having it custom tuned will cost you over $1000. Under the 954 "How to" section you can see my old threads where I installed nitrous on my 954 when I used it for drag racing. Even going this route is not cheap and will cost another 1000 as you need a good exhaust system, PC3 usb with a multi-function hub and wiring, all nitrous parts and custom tune for nitrous. You would be better off buying a newer 1k if you want more power than sinking a lot of money into your 954 to gain such a small amount of power. Changing your gearing is the cheapest way to make your bike feel faster.
