Stage 1 Harley Davidson performance kit options listed below is for those that current have a stock or midly modified engine, if you already have these modifications, please see our stage two options that add onto the performance work already completed. Working with Ghostriders Motorcycle Performance Centre Melbourne is much easier than pulling out the Harley Davidson Catalogue or one of the myriad of performance parts catalogues that are out there. We can advise on what performance enhancements will give you the best results for your Harley.

Ghostriders Performance Centre Stage 1 performance kit upgrades specifically suited to Harley Davidson consists of the following:
- Free breathing air cleaner
- Free breathing exhaust
- Re jetted carburetor or remapped EFI.

There is no greater beginning upgrade you can make than a Stage 1 performance kit which is entirely a add-on procedure to your current engine. These upgrades can be installed individually but the true performance increase on your Harley Davidson will only come to being once all three of these components are completed.

With free air take and exhaust out your Harley now has the setting to provide a more stable and effect fuel mixture. Standard Harley Davidson carburetors and EFI's are not designed with the performance potential your engine now has. Your Harley Davidson carburetor or EFI will need to be corrected to compensate for how differently the engine now breaths. On a carbureted Harley Davidson this means re jetting to allow more air and fuel into the engine in a controlled and managed manner. Ghostriders Motorcyle Performance Centre Melbourne install as part of your stage 1 kit new carburetor jets designed specifically for your make and model of Harley Engine, offering true performance fuel management and increased engine efficiency. EFI (Electronic Fuel Injection) models are another story.

Fuel injected models use a preprogrammed mapped computer to instruct how much fuel is to be delivered. Since you have changed the way the engine breaths, those instructions will not supply the proper stable fuel mixture or give you the best out of the performance potential your engine now has. We recommend Power Commander or Power Vision systems which are the most reputable and proven on Harley Davidson. Both Power Commander or Power Vision System can be programmed or "re-mapped" to deliver the perfect fuel mix to air intake and exhaust ratio at any RPM or riding condition - but this can only be achieved by programming the unit on a Dyno Jet dyno machine designed to run your engine through every riding scenario and map the computer with the fuel mix instructions.

In intake is half of the equation of increased airflow, air exhaust flow is the other half. If your engine can get all the air it can use, this needs to be expelled just as easily or your Harley Davidson engine will continue to struggle to run at it's peak performance.

As with the Free breathing air cleaners and intakes this upgrade can be simple or extreme. Many choose to keep their stock pipes and go with slip-on mufflers. These are easy to install, maintains a stock look, and adds plenty of performance. Popular slip-on models include Harley Davidson Screamin’ Eagle II,Vance and Hines, Freedom, and Cobra to name a few. These brands also offer complete exhaust replacements that are specifically designed to give full unrestricted exhaust air flow, a custom look to your Harley Davidson and a sound that enhances the famous Harley rumble.

A free breathing exhaust for your Harley Davidson is a must have performance upgrade to achieve more performance and allow your engine to run unrestricted.


This is the simplest performance upgrade for your Harley Davidson. Depending on your budget this ranges from changing the air cleaner to a high air flow model to a a new high air flow air intake full intake assembly such as K&N, Kuryakyn, Screaming Eagle, Performance Machine and more.

Each one offers different design looks, and shapes for better air flow. You don’t have to spend a fortune but pick something that fits your bike well, blends into your overall theme and is of a quality brand. If your plan is to keep the look of your current cover assembly go with Screamin’ Eagle or Arlen Ness “Big Sucker” assemblies. These allow you to use your stock cover but the difference over stock is amazing. Free breathing air cleaners and intakes allow more air into your engine for combustion giving the engine as much free air as it needs rather than being restricted as the stock air intakes are.


Ghostriders Motorcycle Performance Centre Melbourne is one of the very few fully authorized and certified Power Commander Dyno Center, using the latest in Power Commander Dyno equipment installed in a sealed dyno room. Ghostriders can as part of your stage 1 performance enhancement program your engine at peak performance no matter what EFI version of Harley Davidson you ride.
