I may be getting older, but I refuse to grow up!
Is a couple hour ride worth the possibility of a melted piston?
Thanks for the reply, I'll try it lidless for now and just keep a eye on it, if I see to much dirt and dust I'll go with the lidMost of us go lidless. If you are currently running a lid and decide to remove it or even use that other lid, check your tune so you don't run lean.
I’d like to emphasize this comment. I definitely wouldn’t want to sacrifice low end grunt for 3 extra hp at the top. The low end is my favorite thing about the 700, and without a new cam or pistons designed to handle that much air, I think it’ll feel generally less powerful while actually riding. I have no experience in this as I have the stock intake and am trying to decide on a new one, but I think I’m gonna go with the Monster.Jumping in here a little late, but wanted to add a few things. FCI is a great intake ( I owe one), but I would not use it on a big 3 bike. You will see maybe 1 or 2 peak HP and some gains up top, but will lose more than that in lower and mid range rpms. It really doesn't work well with the stock cam combined with low compression. FCI seems to work best on 6 mod and up to around 80hp. After that I would say the intakes that come with the bigger TB's are the best. Kenz makes a 52mm that matches their port work for good gains. WK makes a 54mm (really 52 also) DL700 has done some work on the tube to maximize airflow. If your wallet is big enough and you are crazy enough, Barker makes some insane TB/intakes.Steve and others have more knowledge about the adapter intakes, but from what I have seen they all run pretty close in performance and work well with a 3mod bike. Not 100% but I think pro-design may have the best performance, but again gains are minimal. KDS is coming out with a 50mm intake, but not sure if he will design a intake or just recommend the FCI tube. Hope this helps some people. Merry Christmas!
There are many big 3 bundles. Empire Industries, Monster, Rossier, Barkers are great!Hello I’m new here. Going to buy a new raptor this week. Wondering what the best big 3 combo is the best or should I get it all from one company. I know Dasa has full exhaust , intake and power commander as a package. Any one have any info that could help me with a purchase
