Absolutely correct, but you want them removed or inop before dynamometer toasting. Anyway possibly too much being made of the k&n’s. If i remember the difference was like 1 to 2 hp at the top so most won’t even notice. I just feel the stock air filters give the best for a motor in that state of tune. I prefer certain items stock from Honda, fork seals, oil filters, stem bearings. First time I did fork seals for a guy with all balls seal kit you could see the difference in friction. With stock seals and polished fork tubes the tube would drop from full extension under its own weight. Not so with all balls, they can keep that junk. K&Ns may flow more air but there might be more than air in the mix.
I just cleaned up my race bike. Checked my details. Packed my gear into the truck. Loaded up the SP2 and my scooter on the trailer. I have CCS full day of practice tomorrow at Blackhawk Farms Raceway in South Beloit Il. Races on Sat and Sun. It’s been 7 weeks since I last raced. I need to practice my body position and get used to my new Pirellis’. I am trying to drop my lap times by .5 seconds per lap as practice for next week’s AHRMA race. I will update when the weekend is over.
The triples are Attack and feature your choice of stem inserts to change trail up to 5mm. Very nicely made but there is no setup for the ignition switch unless you want to fabricate your own. There are two M6 threaded holes on either side of the center and I used those for the reservoir brackets. Those come from Superbike Unlimited at $29 each if I recall. Nice alloy with just about infinite positioning possible. Wibbly pointed me in the direction of the RFID ignition from moto-gadget. Swipe your fob across where ever you hid the receiver in your fairing and it turn on the power. Receiver is less than diameter of a quarter and about 12mm tall. Connects to a 30amp relay that you wire to the starter switch wires and ya got a very trick setup. Major mojo points to Will for inspiration!👍👍
