- it's not a "2004 softail trike stock". Harley didn't make any trikes in 2004 and never made a softail trike.

- it's a coversion of some sort.

- the best bang for the buck is to install S&S*****cams with S/E adjustable push rods and a self tuning ECM. your pipes should have O2 bungs already. this setup will give you the torque you want.

let me know if you need more help.
