I have searched a while, but cannot find any cold hard facts (dyno charts) on this site regarding actual HP / torque increases from varios mods. There is a lot of subjective comments but I would like to see some facts. My bike trip last week-end through the Adirondacks & Vermont mountains confirmed my initial impression that this puppy needs more power. Actually, I think it needs more torque...it has enough upper rev horsepower for me. I just find it a pain in the ass to have to downshift twice whenever I want to bolt. I miss my VTR1000 :frown: Does anyone have any modification advice focusing on torque ?
