Default Re: Wanna go faster try this out!

The power increase for freeing up exhaust flow isn't that noticeable on a stock engine on flat ground but it makes a very noticeable difference on the hills and added a couple MPH more top speed to all my bikes after freeing up the exhaust, to much back pressure robs power on any engine.

Tom is right on the noise being a bit much in populated housing areas, but even when I ride my bikes into town no one seems to mind the noise around here in small town Texas, most of us kinda like everything loud and a bit obnoxious.... that even goes for our women..LOL!

main thing is just ride safe, have fun and make the bike your own and enjoy it, if the people next door complain be nice and tell them you will work on toning it down so not to offend them, being nice about things is the best way to go about this stuff in my opinion.

Peace, Map
I dont always ride WOT, but when I do..I do my best to keep the rubber side down..Ride safely my friends!
