It's funny how it used to be that when you upgraded just about any motorcycle with a K&N air filter
and some sort of exhaust header, slip on ,straight pipe, or hack job the operator always thought
louder meant it was going faster. In fact is was probably going slower but more fun to hear that it was louder.
That cool factor made us think it was also faster. or Man it runs better now.
Most new motorcycles with fuel injection and a computer are already tweaked pretty good from the factory.
To meet the anti pollution control figures they must be really lean at idle. Upsetting these parameters
can cause the entire tune to be compromised. And then performance suffers. And these parts that were added
are not cheap, Then throw in the Power commander and you have $1000 tied up in stuff that maybe gets you
back to just a little better than stock. Don't fall victim to this trap.
