Let me know your thoughts on the stacks as you get the bike back up. I’m intrigued in the feeling with throttle and a custom tune’
Would one have to re-tune with velocity stacks? Is there that much of a difference in air flow?
I test fit them today, just messing about. They span the entire airbox, even touching both sides. I never thought about throttle response. It is only going to get about 2hp/2tq max, but the mid-range is going to be rockin' it. UKRS has a dyno sheet from a 2008 model, and it gained about 8 tq @ 4k-6k rpm. That is for a 2008, I have a 2014, so I don't really know what it will gain. I'll post up about it in the "what did you" thread.
Yes, it even says in the instructions (in Italian no less!), that it will need a custom tune, because it will run lean with A/F ratio.
Why not go to your favorite hardware store and purchase the correct length bolts for ~50c each?
If you aren't gonna do that then I suggest leaving the already capped oem parts on the bike. The performance of both solutions is the same and the cool factor and weight savings will be diminished with a stack of washers. 🙂
I did, they didn't have anything close. It was actually a specialty nut and bolt place. Either the head was too small, or not the right threads. They are tiny washers (internal diameter is 3/16") and even with the Driven plates and the washers, it weighs less than the OG plates (not to mention the solenoid). If I had to guess, all 35 I bought (I like extra! and 50c for all), probably weighs as much as the 2 bolts that hold the plate on. I used 4 on the left side (small plate), and 3 on the right. I used 1 extra on the left, so I could keep my bracket for mounting the airbox.
I can really do either, I have options. I just might put the OEM back on, so I know the bracket fits perfect. Just waiting on Ditchy to make my resistor. :)
