Re: Blue Label Barkers just arrived!

I got both...Not sure how to post either. I figure you guys probably want the DHL guy first, so I will focus on that!!

LOL


Seriously though. The barkers are damn nice looking and the fit is a piece of cake. From a fully assembled bike with a DrD full exhaust system on it, to Barkers on racing down the street: less than 45 minutes.

I was REALLy surprised at the difference they made. I have head port, 12:1 piston, custom intake, PCIII and the DrD. I didn't think the duals were going to make a real huge difference, I was wrong. They worked with the whole mod group like a charm and made a difference like when I put the 12:1 piston in. I dyno and tune this saturday, I will post some graphs to compre single to full, ect when I get a chance!!

Re: Blue Label Barkers just arrived!

Glad to hear your happy with the duals :thumbsup: I have told countless people that with the better curve the duals, weather it be LTE's or Barkers produce even if the HP difference is only 1.5 to 2 RWHP seat of the pants wise it feels like much more by virture of the better curve and extending the top end HP & RPM range. It also shows up when running side by side with a single piped bike as well. Enjoy your new found power :)

Are DMC's no good? Just curios because you didn't mention them. Just curious.

I try keep my opinion of the DMC's to myself as to not ruffle the feathers of any DMC owners out there.


You should give Mark H at Kenz cycle tech a call and ask him what he has been running into on the dyno when switching out a middle of the road single exhaust to the DMC, you'll be suprised at what he has to say. In the words of Forest Gump, that's all I have to say about that ;)

Daaamn, that's a bad ass looking 700R :thumbsup: I love the combo of the candy blue anodizing on your carrier & brakes against the chrome on the swinger :eek: Love the blue on the frame as well, awesome detail :) What would your corrected HP be, do you know?

Thanks a lot Randy, coming from a guy with a Raptor of your calibers, I take that as a very nice compliments!!

The correction factor for here is 1.26, to the best of my knowledge. That puts it at 66 HP way down where you ride!! LOL

Craziest part is Randy, I compared my map to your LTE map, I have WAY less fuel going in....The A/F was hovering around 14 when he was tuning, seems lean to me but the machine runs great, plug checks out and the header looks good. Not sure if I will leave it there though, I like a little richer normally ;)



Additional Note: Thanks again to Terry Geisick of Geisick Performance. Terry helped out a lot on my project, including the big HP gain head port job!!!

Shit, up there in space where your at you can proabably get away with running pump gas on the screamer ;)


So, am I understanding you right, the map your running has less fuel added than my 3 mod map I sent you?

Man, you need to move to sea level that alltitude is killin you :crazy: :)

Yes, less fuel. I can't figure it out, though I still think I am a bit lean.

Ya, I know. Elevation sucks!!!

And Yes, I run pump gas...hahaha
