Lower Fairing Removal-Performance Gain? Sound crazy?
Okay, so I was riding all last season without my lower fairing (piece that covers oil filter and pipe). The moment I hopped on it after removing it I thought it handled better, wheelied much higher and had less drag. Then again I also thought I was going crazy because there is no way that little scoop could make a difference.
Well I recently re-installed it because the head pipe wasn't looking to well.
I swear that the bike handles worse, seems to have a tremendous amount of drag and my wheelies flat out bite. Any one else experience this, or should I pay my shrink another $120.00 to figure this out. :P
