Well,I got the bike back last Friday from the shop. I am glad I decided to spend the extra bucks and let them do the work.It seems the previous mechanic had set the float levels too high.Something I never would have caught.
Yoshimura Zyclone full system,K&N filter and jet-kit are now installed!!!
Good things: sounds sooooo bitchin' now! I understand why everyone is excited about their pipes etc now! The main thing in performance I notice is that the throttle response is quicker,more instant.More power!!!(insert Tim Allen grunts here!)Also had a set of new plugs installed too.Looks sweet too!Obviously carrying less weight too. Do I get the looks when I go by now!!
The warm up period is shorter too.
Bad things: not too sure yet how much I will miss the center stand. To do an oil change I have to bust the whole system loose to get at the filter now,(major bummer),no problem to get at the plug tho'.The lower right back edge of the body-work contacted the pipe so we needed to put in a spacer. Inside the front of the chin faring the pipes make a little contact but that problem is going away.
No change in the lower RPM grunt,pulls well from about 4000rpm if you want all the way to red-line.
Sounds great,runs great and looks bitchin'!! All in all I am pretty happy with the results,doesn't sound like a damn sewing machine now but a screaming angry Kat!!!
Now if it just wasn't 40 degrees I could ride it more!!
