put about 1k miles on w/ all the guts in and they get more deeper and better.

As I've posted in another thread, Gman noted that significant HP gains were available through air/fuel modification on the intake side, and were not significant with flow modifications to the exhaust side.

The factory pipes are (calibrated) smaller diameter for a reason: smaller diameter increases the velocity of the exhaust flow, there-by moving more air out of the engine after combustion, ie, greater suction or sipping of the exhaust.
To test this, simply take a 1/2" or 3/4" piece of plastic pipe, and
try to drink soda from a glass. Next, use a soda straw to drink the soda.

Which device assists lifting the fluid from the container?
Not the large diameter device, that is, unless You're much, much, larger than the average man, and have the stature to provide suction enough to pull that soda with the larger plastic tube.

Granted We're mixing apples and oranges, (fluids and gasses) however, the scientific principle is the same.

That Is true with pipe size.............. although it is a matter of restriction in the exhaust system that we are more concerned about, just about all pipe diameter at outlet on jug is the same size without doind serious modificfationsand as they step up it too larger size it creates a scavage effect in the exhaust

Tech words for what I was thinking.
Also V&H says their Cruzers are designed for better performance.

Only got a C in my Fluid dynamics class back in college.

Intake Recommendations

Which intake do you guys recommend then? What is the $55 intake that was mentioned? Since I have the Cobra Exhausts and FI2000 I am ready to modify my intake and was considering K&N air filter but I'd rather listen to SAGE ADVICE before wasting my money.

Thank Guys!

How much $$ you wanna spend? The $55 one is prolly the uni foam filter which goes under the tank.
GMan Industries sells a kit for the OEM intake w/ a K&N filter.
Mine is a Kuryakan High five inhaler w/ custom K&N and adapter to my bike. Not cheap.
Most aftermarket you can get are over $200
Thunder manufacturing is another place too look.

I am looking at doing my own under the tank kit.....you can get all sizes of aftermarket quality filters and cold air adapters and pipeing for less than $100.

I installed a Kury Hypercharger, Cobra fuel processor and V&H Cruzers. At same time I did the Hamling's drive install. Feels a bit quicker with slightly more power. I guess it could be my sub-conscience justifying the expense...lol.

Regardless, its still an 805cc engine. Even before these mods, I made several rides of the 500-750 mile range with larger bikes and had no problems keeping up. In fact, I usually lead. Our riding style is to keep with 10 mph of the speed limit and our preference is to avoid the interste system wherever feasible.

I bought a curiser to mainly cruise locally and tour seldmon. I'm happy with the C50T.

2006 C50c, with power commander, K&N Filter and V/H Cruzers, I have more performance than stock. Can't quantify that but at 80mph indicated,2 up, I can still roll on the throttle and pass with ease. My stock 2005 C50 could not do that.
