X-TRE Install

I got my X-TRE and I am very happy with it. It feels like a new more powerful bike. I am very impressed!!

I also installed a KN airfilter so I am sure that helped also.
The install is very simple I posted up some pics of the install.

Your power increase you are feeling is likely just from the new air cleaner.
Man folks, don't you check your air filter between services? Looks like a power robber to me.

Mine gets bad around 2000 miles with that hover sucking from the front fairing.

Those insect bodies look HUGE! How did they pass through the screen/grill on the air intake?

yeah I'm pretty sure the air filter made the biggest difference when it comes to power. But the X-TRE sure made the engine feel much more aggresive.

I ride down here in South Florida, what can I say, bugs everywhere! At least I didn't go out during love bug season, or else that filter would have been 10X's worse
