    Good time to go to undertank K&N RU-5111 and free up your underseat storage space

    Run all tests, load up map to suit, clear any fault codes if any, reset ISCV, balance throttles etc

    The supercharged Carpenter engine came out, and the 2.5L stroker went in :D

    Oh yes... initially.
    But long term, it will be a 2.5L supercharged Carpenter engine... the largest Rocket III/3 engine, and one of the most powerful if not the most powerful.

    So I wonder, is there a practical point where more power is moot ? That is, at some point on the curve, any given suspension/tire combination is going lose traction, and having the capacity to generate the excess power costs a fuel delta whether used or not.

    Of course, there are always bragging rights -- I get that.

    Frankly Joe....i have a TTS Stage I kit on mine (2010 roadster) at the moment (with 233bhp...etc etc) but i cant really find a place on the open road where I can safely utilize all the power (or where I'm willing to risk it...given I'm a fair to average rider and I'm now in my 50's)....I have the stage 2 kit in the garage and I'm only really going to put it on so the money doesn't go to waste (i don't really need the extra bhp and I'm not going any further down the bhp track)......but i can certainly admire Mr Turbo's attitude :)......
