Has anyone heard of increasing the horse power by removing a rbber hose near the air filter? I haven't looked under my tank yet so I was told this is an easy way to gain horsepower. Can this be confirmed? Thanks
Exactly right. As someone with a lot of experience racing SV's I can tell you that power gains (at least if you want any kind of reliability) are hard to come by and cost major money.* Nothing is as easy as disconnecting a hose....The Wee is a poor initial platform for adding power...
Simply not true. Airboxes (at least if properly designed) smooth out the power curve and reduce the size of the "holes"....Mine is in the tool box and yes she honks like God intended. Sometime soon If I can find a flea bay airbox cover I will experiment by putting many large holes in it so air box is not a "tuned" vessel. The tuning part is why there is always a hole in the torque curve...
Which means you have more money for gas, and you'll live longer to take more trips. It's a win/win/win!! :hurray:I got about an 8% hp boost for nothing. According to interweb wisdom, ten pound weight loss equals one horsepower gained, and I've lost fifty pound over the past several years. In fact, it's saved me money on bp and gout meds. :thumbup:
