Not (theorizing) about the actual HP value of the most popular mods however. Its still "into the engine" for more real sustained HP..........while agreeing that the other things are nice.......just not as power enhancing as has been suggested by this forum in the past. Chip, filter, duct, pipes........equal usually about 1.5 HP sustained power increase, max.
Thanks to all for such a nice thread, often postive, that led out into many directions.
Still trying to decide if this forum collectively feels that a R11S is quicker through Deals Gap, for instance, than a K12RS. Don't most acknowledge that a K12S will out gun a R11S on both tight and open roads, or are die-hards out there who think that a K12RS will get slipped by a R11S when things start to tighten up for twenty miles or so. Suspension mods help both bikes of course, but does the R11S need suspension mods MORE THAN a K12RS.............or is the other way around. Curious as to others experience.
