best performance essentials
OK.. Here's the deal.. before I get all of the talk of leaving your bike stock, thats not what I did so if thats your explanation, dont bother.
I bought my '01 vn750 back in march. I have been adding to it ever since, as you can tell by my signature. My biggest issue now is a drop in top end performance. When I first purchased the bike, I had been over 95mph several times and it felt like there was much more there to run. I wanted to add the V&H Cruzers and I love the sound but noticed the drop in torque and top end. I have now added some torque cones at the manifold and that has brought back some of the off the line accel and little to the top. It will now go 95, but it sure doesnt get there as fast and you need to keep the rpms up there as well.
Its not that I want to go that fast all the time, I am just wondering about the power drop and what causes it. Could I have a problem somewhere else?
So... if I am going with the V&H pipes, what else can I do to improve performance? I know other have siad you don't need to re-jet, but V&H says yo do. What about better air filters for intake.?? I have added the Iridium plugs, so that part is already taken care of. Can any other electrical issues cause a power drop??
I would just like to know what are the best things that need to be done for best performance
