Engine performance Upgrades Completed
I installed the last of my engine performance upgrades yesterday which was the Super Tune Kit from Holeshot Performance which includes a custom made by Dobeck Performance for Holeshot fuel manager, with Dales custom dyno tuned settings to work in conjunction with the Arrow header and Holeshot’s 17” Slip-on I already have installed. The kit also comes with (2) O2 sensor eliminator plugs, and a special plug that allows you to unplug the fuel manager from the sub-harness for troubleshooting purposes.
The kit also comes with a curved S/S rain shield that bolts to the front of the airbox to help keep rainwater from entering the air box once the factory rubber snorkel is removed. I also installed a new K&N air filter which is also part of Dales overall Super Tune Kit.
This was my first time with this bike removing all of the parts of to get the gas tank off as well as removing the tank and the airbox, and it only took me 45 minutes. So now that I know all of the idiosyncrasies of doing it, when I ever have to take it down this far again it will go even quicker. The V-Strom is a breeze to work on compared to my 2013 FJR1300 I sold last year which was a PITA to work on, and which was one of the main reasons I sold it, and a main complaint amongst FJR owners.
So I’m taking the bike out for a test ride later today.
