However, the difference is WTF and better hold on!
Yes, you picked up quite a bit of power and I'm sure it feels a lot different.
I do have some issues - one - the low HP vs Torque. There is apparently more HP available to me if i change my pipes from the X-bow's to a two into one system. But, I really like the looks of the X-Bow on my KP.
It's just math... HP = TQ X RPM / 5252 all day every day. Looking at the graph, it is rolling over after 4600 rpm. If I had to guess, it's because the exhaust has catalytic converters and they are restricting flow at high RPM. The problem is it's already tuned to that restiction...
I have looked at the RPW Big slash as an alternative or possibly the RPW Thor. But, i am not sure what the gain would be and which will give my the added performance to change ? Half Crazy, would like your comments on this as Kyle said you have a Thor on your KP i believe.
I am also concerned with how loud they will be.
The RPW Big Slash is louder, expecially on decel. The Thor is quiet at idle and cruise, only gets loud when you're in the throttle hard. With a good pipe (no cats) you should be over 102 HP. Torque may only come up a little at peak but will carry out farther to the right. You have a very strong bike at the low end and midrange. It makes the power where ya need it. What do you do with the bike? Are you willing to buy pipes and re-tune it to gain 6 HP at the top of the tach? Only you know what's right for you. You can sell the X-Bow pipes and get a bit of it back.
Two - while i enjoy the added performance, i have dropped gas mileage big time 10-15 mpg depending on wind and my right hand. I am hoping Kyle can help me out with this. Switching pipes may also help.
I would imagine you are enjoying the power and running it differently than before. When you just ride "normally" it may not be different at all. Get your hand out of the throttle body, LOL
Three - i do get some more popping and sometimes when bliping the throttle on down shifts i get pops from the Torque tubes. I have not talked to Lloyd on this yet.
Do you have the IAV from Lloydz? Maybe that would help.
