Velocity Stacks

Has anyone been able to find velocity stacks for the Gen5s?
No luck so far on my end.

Wink

Damn they look sexy. A little pricey... but sexy. MSRP: $315 or so. Looks like they increase horsepower for the gen5's on the dyno by up to 2HP. If someone were trying to compare dicks on dyno sheets these might be the move.

Oh, sweet! A Motomaxx Velocity stack thread! There hasn't been one of these in about 3 years! Someone needs to start a Group Buy for these!!!

FYI, this topic dates back to the 2015 timeframe. These Motomaxx carbon fiber stacks were bought by a lot of the guys here (including me) on the initial Group Buy. The feedback that was provided by some reputable members here showed that the claims offered by the guy building these is a bit exaggerated. Don't expect these to drop-in and gain you anything. On the Gen 4, there were some minimal gains to be had if tuned for it properly. But again, the consensus was these velocity stacks are not worth the time and effort for the minimal gains from them. The Kawi engineers did a good job on the OEM ones!

After I put mine in, my butt-dyno registered a throttle response improvement. The guys trying these on the dynos did not concur. And there were a lot of disappointed people. I removed them before I traded my G4 and another member wanted them to play around. I sold them for cheap so he could see what he could get out of them. So did pretty much everyone who got them on the Group buy! They do look neat though!

I may not be perfect, but at least I don't ride a Suzuki.

Performance wise, if there were gains to be had, this would be a widely-known and available go-fast upgrade. The bike has been out for 2 years and nothing. Which is telling. They look cool but nobody can see them anyway so not even style points. Not worth it.

Not only that, but why are they made in carbon fiber? What's the point of forcing a higher price on a part that would have negligible if no weight savings and no visual appeal?

2013 ABS, Bridgestone T30 Evo, Woolich, Danmoto shorty & link, Rifleman's 1/5th turn, K&N, GP shift, Gen5 shock/links/dogbone, JT (-1/+0), EK, Shorai, EBC HH, AllBallz roller steering, heated grips, shorty levers, MotoDynamic signals & relay, plasti-dipped and vinyl wrapped (all green to black), Bestem carbon, PUIG Pro sliders, solo cowl, modded sprocket cover, TST fender elim. w/LEDs. 45,000km+ and going strong!

Uh, have you not been paying attention here? They're CARBON FIBER! What else needs to be said? That is the lightest, strongest, and most advanced space-age polymer out there! It only makes sense to make these out of carbon! They look great! After these go on the bike, the only thing that's needed is a clear plexiglass airbox so that these can be seen and admired for the carbon weave pattern! Worth the price!

Mind you, since I sold my set of these, I'm just going to throw some Kawi green paint on my OEM ones so that they match the color scheme.
