I want to correct the backfiring on my exhaust before this summer, anyone have any suggestions? Does a fuel programmer fix this? I removed my baffles from the cobra pipes, but I have considered putting them back in because of the backfire
Does anyone know of good signals to put on the rear? I want to just leave the brake light up and take the ugly turn signals off
Any suggestions on air intakes? Any certain better than another performance wise?
Thanks for your help guys!!
The bike always has some sort of decel popping... it is just more prominate without baffles.... if it is real bad... either your header is not properly seated, or your copper gasket is bad, or the bolts are loose (which is going back to the not properly seated). A tuner will help greatly in this area... but not totally eliminate it...
As far as tail lights... we already have a pretty bright LED one.... I like the R1 tailight Mod... it has integrated signals and really cleans up the rear.
Personally... I have the Black Cobra Powerflo... looks nice, knee doesn't touch it when riding... great air flow... love the sound of it suckin' air when you get on the throttle.. and it comes with a K&N filter.
Since you already have an exhaust... a tuner will become very important if you put on an aftermarket intake.... our bike come extremely lean from the factory... replacing both intake and exhaust will cause an even leaner condition, you will run the risk of overheating. the tuner will richen your air/fuel mix and boost performance. because it is richening your A/F mix... your MPG's will go down.
