Default Re: Gave up trying to go fast

Okay, I admit it, I got an RT carb and a SBP expansion chamber to increase performance but I really didn't get these things with speed in mind. I set up my expansion chamber to get more low end torque, to give me more acceleration when I need it. I got the RT carb to get more power going up the many hills in my area. I hardly ever ride at wide open throttle on level ground. I don't need to rev it up to high RPMs. I mostly ride at about 25mph but it's nice to have that extra power if I need it, in fact, in certain situations it can actually be safer. I have never tried the shift kit so I don't know about that.
