Hey guys, I had my bro haul my beast out to the boonies (near where he lives), and i took the baffle out of the stock muffler on my targa LX. I didn't really notice a diff in the beginning, but when i finally got a good downhill, i noticed a BIG difference. My max before was about 35 on a good day with a rear wind. I hit 43 f'ing mph without that baffle. The only thing was, when i hit flat land again, it went right back to 32 mph. But, that's still plenty enuff reassurance for me to get a bi-turbo exhaust.
I'm still keeping abreast of the ignition timing debate, and I admit I'm afraid to be the forefront of that expedition only because my bike is new and it's my only means of transportation. But, there is a good possibility that this weekend I may get drunk enuff and have time enuff to dry tinkering with it. Shit, I've blown thousands of bucks on my vette engine, surely I can spend hundreds on my main ride...hee hee. But, the vette lays one heck of a black mark...anybody with license (and reasonable sense) is welcome to burn some rubber... hee hee.
Anyways, I'll let ya's know if I experiment and win or lose...
Swarm and f'ing smother, then destroy without prejudice,
PS, notice the longer i ride a ped the more bitter i become?
