Default LloydzTorque Tubes/PCV/IAV/Timing wheel results

I have a 2009 Kingpin with 4100 miles. I purchased the bike last summer. The only mod was Victory Swept pipes. I contacted Lloydz in order to get rid of the popping while decelerating. It was recommended I get a fuel modulator, IAV and advanced timing wheel. While making the upgrade I decided torque tubes would be nice in order to get a few more horses. I also went with the PCV thinking I may one day replace the cams.
After the install and dyno the results are disappointing. I honestly donít feel any difference in performance. I still have the popping. The dyno results came up with 83 hp and 103 lbs./torque. The mechanic was Kyle Crandall of KMC Motorsports. Great mechanic/person! He tried real hard to squeeze out more but concluded the pipes are holding me back. So Iíll start saving some money for next year and do my homework researching pipes.

From what i understand the swept pipes were about the worst performance pipes to run.

I have the 2 into 1 for sale in the wanted section, couple people had good ideas about fixing them.. If interrested in them let me know.. could beadblast them then get powder coated..just putting it out there since your looking for pipes cheaper way out.

I don't know what the initial numbers were, however original Victory specs claim the Kingpin has 85 hp/ 106 lbs. torque.

Are at the rear wheel.

I saw this install going on at Chesapeake. I was wondering how it would turn out. My XR with the stage 1 made those numbers at the rear wheel. Definitely pipes should help. I want to throw my Judge on the dyno just to get a number.

They sure are. The are also for a stock bike WITHOUT the additional swept pipes. Those pipes are killers for power, almost anything out there would be better. While they look and sound nice they perform like crap.

It was tough to follow the Vision having the cams installed. I think he got 118 hp. after the dyno. I'm not much of a mechanic, so this is all overwhelming for me. I would spend the extra money for performance pipes if it would make a significant difference in both performance and reducing the backfiring. For now I'm going to soak up the comments and suggestions and make a decision by end of summer.
