    Spend your money on chrome instead. You'll get more out of it.:D

    You got a carburetor on that bike? Go to the site below and put in your info (year, make, type) and see what comes up. I put in my '03 and it shows an X wing but only shows it through '05!!

    They show it on their site for my 07 . It look like the same thing that automotive flea market vendors were trying to sell in the late 70s,claimed it would turn your car into a hot rod:newsmile100:

    Now that you know that is a bad deal, shop elsewhere for your pipes and such. Chances are they feel they can take advantage of you. Here is your chance to take advice from this forum and capitalize on these stealers. Go to another dealership and share your experience and they will likely treat you with respect.:s

    ok, so no one has any knowledge of this product as i can tell. i did a little research on it and found two articles that said they found a 1 to 2 hp gain on the dyno. the unit is supposed to straighten out the air, not swirl it. i just thought maybe "glider" or "hobbit" who seems to be the guru's here might have some input. dont take this the wrong way, but i just expected more intellegent answers than trying to sell me something silly.
