Performance Mods / more power

Hello all, ive been searching around the web for a little while and im not really finding anything concrete about adding power to the GL1200.
Ive read a little about head swaps, but I still want the machine reliable and from what ive read, they aren't too successful.

So what can one do to get more power out of GL1200? Which coils will work for a hotter burn? Ive looked at a set of Accel universal coils and someone mentioned Dyna coils?

Now mine is a Limited so is there a way of fitting a bigger set of injectors or tuning the "computer"?

Any off the shelf cams?

Id really like to run down my dad on his 1500 Valkyre lol


1985 GL1200, all stock, left out in the weather for years, but 14,800 miles! came with all the factory goodies.
