Just wanted to put this out there. I did a few simple mods to my Vee, K&N air filter, JSD ignition advancer removed the stock muffler baffles. It was not until I removed the butterfly secondaries though that the real performance of this bike came to life. For such an easy thing to do it yields a lot of satisfaction. Kudos to all of you Strommers for the advice to do it. The acceleration now without the secondaries is amazing, she just pulls and pulls all the way through the rev range. Highly recommended. I also lowered the front suspension and cranked down the spring rate, as well as in the rear. The handling is much improved as well. Now if I can only stop the pre-tank slapper weaving at high speed. This bike is truly the one that can do it all.
