So it begins!!! Intake, fueling & exhaust mods.

Just ordered a Yosh carbon R77 slip on from Revzilla. And at about noon I will place an order with Holeshot Performance for the following;

EFI Super Tune Pro
Arrow header
Servo buddy
K&N Air filter

When I did similar mods to my 02 V1 it was fabulous. Completely transformed the riding experience. So much more responsive and smooth which is how Dale describes his conversion . Should get about 10 more h.p. in the midrange and fuel economy well into the 40's.

Will keep you posted.

Got the Yosh installed. Left the baffle in for now. With just the new can there is a noticeable improvement in throttle response. Less engine breaking and free reving. Nice sound as well. Hopefully the fueling module and air filter show up tomorrow.

Hmm I really like the engine brake. Not sure I want to sacrifice that.

That was my plan as well(except I was going to go with Power Commander). It wasn't so much for the extra hp. I just wasn't happy with the throttle response.I got the Yosh and servo buddy on and was so pleased with the results that I decided that the rest of it could wait. I'll be really interested to hear about your results with the whole system compared to just the slip on.

When I removed the stock can I looked in the header pipe at the flapper and noted it was open. I'm thinking I may just undo the linkage and let the servo motor be for now. With the Holeshot fueling modual, K&N air filter and airbox mods it may be all the improvement I need. Save about $500.

As has been noted, the screw that holds the baffle in the Yosh can allen head strips out ( maybe I should have heated it up first ) so I will have to drill it out to remove the baffle. The Holeshot stuff has not yet arrived so it will be a few days before I get to decide if I'm going to order the Arrow race header.

There is still sufficient engine breaking - just not so much that it chirps the rear tire when I chop the throttle.

Me going with the Arrow was all about getting rid of that uggly flapper sticking out in plain sight. But clean lines and clean flow certainly added to the sound even with baffle in.

Yeh they left alot hanging out in the open on this bike. It has a bit of an unfinished appearance.

Rear tire shouldn't chirp with a slipper clutch.

Well, that shows you just how snatchy the stock fueling is on mine and why I've decided on improving it.
