You can feel a diff cause yer getting 4 or so ft lbs of torque gain also
IF it was done right.
All I did was add the X14ieD's for $110 and punch the stock pipes,
The disk I knocked out, Daves Bafflectomy stage one, Its a sticky.

I felt that, I can accelerate in 5th gear from below 50 mph with no
lugging now...As long as I do It gently..

Sounds almost exactly like $300 SE mufflers,,cost $3 for the
threadded rod. I already had the BFH(Big Freakin Hammer)

SO,,, I feel like I got a stage one using the ass power meter for
about $115..
My stock breather works great and I dont like the 'sucking' sound
of the more open breather..

A proper stage one for what ?? how much ??
$300 mufflers,
$225 breather kit,
$350 PCIII,
,,,no thanks,,,
for 4 to 7 extra hp,,,no thanks..

If I'm gonna spend that much I'll hold out for cams and get Into stage two..

I already got the 1200

With a carb motor and eBay shopping...

$35 for Dyno-Power slip on mufflers,
$65 for a NOS SE air cleaner kit,
$10 for new carb jets...

...a little over 100 bucks for 6 or 7 hp (over 10% increase from stock). I'll take it!

You Carb guys got it made in the shade LOL

Ponder this wise one,,

Where is that extra HP ?
Is 75% of it way up the rpm range ??
where ya never go ?
I know you carb guys can place the ponies right where ya want em
if ya know yer pipes n such.

But these EFI bikes,,I think they are far harder to get the extra
ass where ya want it...

And yer right "a little over 100 bucks for 6 or 7 hp (over 10% increase from stock). I'll take it!"

BUT a GRAND to get that on an EFI bike,,,LOL Not this boy..

Agreed. My seat of the pants dyno tells me that a free-flowing air cleaner and rejet makes more power everywhere, but the switch from stock mufflers to more open ones gives a little better power at higher rpms at the expense of some torque down low. I've recently gone back to the stock exhaust system (which is from 1983, so it isn't too restrictive) because of that.

I got to admit... I spent the money on the AF and the baffles for the pipes... Less than 2 bills for the stage 1 because the pipes and the power commander was already there when I bought the bike. I probably wouldn't have spent the big bucks for the pipes and tune. I'm so cheap that I won't spring for the $40 for a new clutch cable. It only leaks a little bit of oil...
