gixxer 1000 veloctiy staxx

pix and info------> http://www.nbriders.ca/phpBB2/here-vp267131.html#267131


these will make ur intake sound louder and u'll have to re-adjust ur idle, on my customers bike his idle when from 1,200-----> 1,500rpm

these improve air flow so much you'll get more bottom end torque!

and i highly recomend getting the FI tuned because ur bike will run on the lean side as seen in the dyno chart where power drops

depending on ur height and the helmet you wear you mite need ear plugs when riding hard

Not like the 1k needs anymore bottom end torque.

I have the same stacks but I got mine from Youshimura. They are extremely loud like you said especially when I hit the red line. They act like a tornando and sounds like it. NICE PICS

Velocity stacks were used on (mechanical) fuel-injected drag racers in the 1960's. They were about eight-inches-tall and looked pretty intimidating sticking through the hood of a Dodge Hemi. They worked great for drag racing, where the vehicle is running in a very narrow RPM-range, but were terrible for the street. They may work on computer-controlled fuel injection, but I still don't believe it could be all-around better than whatever the stock setup looks like.

in a way. My bikes lower end rpm's and torque has picked up somewhat. But I actually feel it more at the high rpm's. At least for me I noticed when there is more air being sucked in the bike it is a lot more peppy. A real snap of the neck when going up in the gears. So I do agree it's not a all around plus using them but still has a BIG plus IMO.

So you think they work more for the straight line guys than the canyon carvers.

IMO, I think better in the higher RPM's rather than the low. At least for me I notice the bike acting more crisp reaching the red line instead at the bottom. Now, there are many carvers who are up there in rpm's....especially coming out of a turn and into one. Thats just my

Probably a dyno tune after the stacks.
