Roland Sands Project 200 Big Dyno Numbers
Wednesday, November 24, 2010
Project 200 took a big leap toward reaching its goal of breaking the 200 mph barrier recently after a trip to Lloydz Motor Works. The Lloydz crew spent over 320 hours turbo boosting the stock Victory Freedom 106 engine and now the RSD Project 200 now puts up burly numbers - Max Power of 214.29 hp on the dyno at just under 5000 rpm and Max Torque of 243.54 lb-ft at @ 4400 rpm. Holy freakin’ cannoli. This thing’s a beast. No doubt it’s got the power to help Roland achieve his goal of breaking 200.
Here's the dyno numbers after Lloyd's Motor Works worked its magic on the RSD Project 200.
Here’s a peek at what the gang at Lloydz Motor Works installed to push power output to its new gaudy numbers:
Lloyd’z 105.28mm Big Bore kit with Custom Turbo Pistons
Fully balanced and blueprinted the crank, rods and pistons
Re-worked the oiling system for better lubrication
Ported and polished the heads with custom oversized stainless steel valves
Lloydz’ custom grind Turbo Cams
Installed a Garrett Turbo with intercooler
Custom PCU re-programming
Power Commander 5 with boost control
2 Secondary direct injection injectors that work above 5 lbs boost pressure
Prototype PMRT/Barnett fly weight lock up clutch
A 200 mph cruiser? Sure, if that cruiser has been transformed by speed demon Roland Sands.
We first saw this bike at the 2011 Victory Motorcycles
Press Intro – a base Victory motorcycle pimped out with Roland Sand’s
racing pedigree. The ultimate goal of the project is breaking the Modified Partial Streamlining record and cracking 200 mph. The first round of conversions involved rounding off the bodywork to increase aerodynamics. RSD went as far as to include a dugout in the top of the tank for the rider to tuck their chin into. They switched from cruiserish forward controls to billet rearsets for more race-bred ergonomics. They also dropped the seat height to tuck the rider in as low as possible and fobbed up a speed hump on the tail section.
To keep the front end planted with the increased speed, RSD installed an Ohlins steering damper off a Ducati. They converted the bike to chain drive. Seeing as how there weren’t any chain drive conversion kits for Victorys on the market, the RSD crew knocked out the splines of the stock belt pulley and welded on their own counter shaft sprocket.
They slammed the bike low to the ground and slapped on some lightweight, prototype RSD SLAM wheels, 17x3.5 front and 17x6 on the back mated to Dunlop Sportmax GP tires. Big Performance Machine discs do stopping duty front and back. The stock exhaust was ditched for a high performance 2-into-1 pipe.
With the initial modifications, Roland was able to put the RSD Project 200 up to 147 mph out in the desert. Now that Lloydz is done with it, breaking the 200 mph mark is in Roland’s sights. Can’t wait to see him pull the trigger on this sucker.
