Re: Throttle travel - seeking 100% !!!

Thanks Rich - just had a re-read of that thread so that's a job to add to the list. Is that all you did or did you use a synchrometer as well?

Re: Throttle travel - seeking 100% !!!

Sounds good, what was the reason for changing the bolt and didt it make any difference? Never used a synchrometer but I love an excuse to but a tool...

I can check the throttle pot on mine and compare if you like?

Re: Air intake hose

Anybody changed their standard foam witches hat for a cotton gauze (K&N etc.) type? Does it make any difference to the induction noise?

Re: Air intake hose

Think the general consensus is to have it not pointing directly at the incoming airflow to stop it sucking in water, but with a couple of extra long cable ties, you can pull it towards the scoop and at a 45 deg angle. Interestingly enough, the hose is directional! Think you've removed the 2nd filter...

Re: Best mod / worst mod

Sorry to hear that; never heard so mixed reviews about a company before, some love 'em, so hate 'em! Was this on an Evora or an S1? Looking at back box options for my S1; current (Janpeed oval) is a bit too short so is recessed in the rear clam. Re the S1. I have a Janspeed twin pipe from Demon Twe...

What was bad about the 2bular manifolds? Took almost a year to get delivered. Then delivered incomplete and stated will join up to oem down pipe.

Re: What snow foam

Tried the Valet Pro stuff initially, but found the Bilt Hamber snow foam better; doesn't look as 'foamy', but just cleans betters.

Re: Ohlins 2 Way with 450/600lb Springs

Can't comment on Ohlins stuff, but I found 500lb springs too stiff on the rear no matter how much I adjusted the damping. Settled on 450 lb rear/375 lb front; think that's about 50-60% stiffer than OE?
