JP1143, did you find taking the secondaries out resulted in more off idle and midrange torque?

I did on a k7 750. It's not placebo or a non-linear torque curve making it feel more powerful IMO. Time to maximum power is noticeably shorter, that is I find myself having to shift through the gearbox much quicker when I give it WOT.

Is that why you are recommending the short stacks?

Yes, with the short stacks the bike felt stronger from mid-range to the upper end of the powerband. Bike also felt more responsive and quicker to power like you said with secondaries out. It didn't matter what size of dispalcement motor we were messing around with, every bike ran better with the secondaries out.

Re: Introducing EL TORO - THE TIRE KILLER

That's the quickest and easiest way to do it.

How much power will you lose with the shaft still in, maybe someone else knows exactly, my guess about 2hp? But you gain much more with the STV plates out. Some people don't like it though.

I've removed the shaft on mine and fabricated a small shaft from aluminium for coupling the STV motor to the STP sensor. I have two sets of throttle bodies, stock and modified and have AB'd them a few times.

Re: Introducing EL TORO - THE TIRE KILLER

Hey kwaka10r, what kind of bike do you have? I'm assuming by your screen name that I think I know what the answer is, but I could be wrong.

Re: Introducing EL TORO - THE TIRE KILLER

Hey JP. Damn u JP. I've been fighting with Big Foxie for a while... just lots of details, lot of it wiring related

Was getting kinda burned out / depressed over the thing for a while.

But JP has gotten me fired up again (we chat via txt messages on the phone a fair amount). So i'm back up to speed

Gonna have the bike done / running soon. And I'll put on plenty of posts, I promise

As General Douglas Macarthur said in 1942, when the Japanese forced him to leave the Philippines - "I SHALL RETURN!" (as the Japanese tried to expand their pacific empire, and while we in the USA were still knocked back on our heels after Pearl Harbor).....


And he did return too. In 1944 we, led by Macarthur, went back to the Philippines, and kicked the living shit out of the Japanese who had made themselves a little too comfortable there

Barely a year later..... and the Japanese were signing the peace treaty ending WW2, Sept 2, 1945, ceremonies held on the deck of the USS Missouri, one of the greatest battleships that ever to sail the ocean

Re: Introducing EL TORO - THE TIRE KILLER

Iridium, you crack me up man. When you and Big Foxie come down, I'm taking you drinking so I can hear that sinister laugh of yours in person. Plus we will go out to the gun range too when we are not drinking or riding.

Did you see that other thread too?

The GSXR1000 Performance Q thread?

Yeah I saw that. Honestly........ I don't know what I'm saying half the time I'm saying it either..... it just all kinda falls into place and sounds halfway right. And halfway crazy

And yeah, I do have an evil laugh / cackle. Either the funniest goddamn laugh ever... or the most evil laugh ever..... and sometimes both at the same time..... Thank god its really loud!!!

As they said in Super Troopers, "EVIL SHENANIGANS!!!" HEHEHEHEHE (insert deranged leprechaun laughter here)

Re: Introducing EL TORO - THE TIRE KILLER

Hey man, we had a big discusion about stacks while back. What do you think about the ones on the left on this link?
http://www.cougarred.com/gsxr1000k6.html

I think Yosh made some similar to these.

Re: Introducing EL TORO - THE TIRE KILLER

STACKS! Came across the reference in here... using FP's stacks in my '03 with secondaries removed, Yosh cams, etc... milder than THIS build, but spry after a few flashes with the TEKA.

Where did this epic build go?!?! Looking for more of this kind of overkill...

PUMP IT UP!

Re: Introducing EL TORO - THE TIRE KILLER

Hey Crispone, glad you chimed in man. See you had some nice weather for riding. Man its been to hot over here to ride. Rode my newer bike for about 15minutes 3 weeks ago. Just have been busy with work as usual. Need to get me a Ballistic batttery for my K4. Its been eating up the batteries. 14+ compression is hard on regular batteries.
