These bikes and their CV carbs are so precisely tuned that any changes to the exhaust and especially the intake upsets them to no end.

You can rejet until you're blue in the face but the only solution is going to a different type of carb if you want to mod.



Changing anything in the intake or exhaust actually causes you to lose, not gain, power and mpg.

Take it back to stock or figure out some restrictor plates to put inline with the pod filters so the proper vacuum is maintained.

Race engines running unrestricted intake Ex systs are not made to be reliable over time, nor perform at less than "Fast".



They also totally rebuild those race engines after a few runs, sometimes after a single run
