factory pro velocity stacks vs sport rider real world test

I just comapred the sport rider finding for the factory pro stacks (04 R1) to facotry pros site and man what a difference. Even with their overly optmistic dyno, sport riders claims are WAY below the gains factory pro asserts that they can gain.
I have to say I'm a little bit disappointed in regards to this since factory pro claims no need to remap the Fi...what a bummer...and miykl said they aren't really worth it either. LIARS, LIARS trying to get me to waste my money. ARGHHH.

It might have lost a lil on top for the R1 but it sure as hell cleaned up that midrange dip they had. They should remap and see if there are anymore gains....

It looked like about a 7-8 hp gain through the middle. Well worth it if ya ask me.
Wish they would have tested a 10R.

Pesky has the V-stacks on his R1. My bike still make 5 more HP than his at 8.3k rpms. No doubt his bike runs stronger than most though. As for the 10, maybe with a full system the V-stacks would be of more bennefit. Ballsup will have to comment on that once he get's in some runs.

I just installed the stacks, HOLY CRAP! It has way more mid-range, crisper throttle response, and is slightly louder. It pulled like a freight train to 173 mph and was still climbing when I came up on some cars and had to brake. Muzzy Ti slip-on, -1 front, +2 rear, BMC street filter, strapped in the front. I drag raced a friends car (800+ rwhp), and beat him by 2 car lengths. I have a pcIII on the way. I think they're well worth the $$$.


I live my life a quarter-pounder at a time. And for those 500 calories or more, im free. I need FRIESSSS! Two of them. The big ones. Oh, and I need them tonight. You're lucky the double shot of BBQ sauce didnt blow a seam on your nugget box.

Were these Factory Pro VS? and is that the only change you made or was it in combination with something else??

You guys ever thought about doing a dyno run verses time/speed?

some stacks went for 50 bucks on ebay with an airbox.

Kip: Napoleon, don't be jealous that I've been chatting online with babes all day. Besides, we both know that I'm training to be a cage fighter.
Pedro: Yes. I don't understand... they say you're not allowed to have pinatas that look like real people, but in Mexico, we do it all the time.
Pedro: Vote for me, and all your wildest dreams will come true.
