Anyone who thinks that an internal combustion engine's power output can be increased by only increasing airflow through it, without any thought giving to maintaining the proper stoichiometric ratio, is ignorant of the most fundamental understanding of the principles of the internal combustion engine. It is simply not possible to significantly increase the power output of a fuel injected engine that is controlled by an ECU without reprogramming the ECU.

The only thing I think those pesky engineers really goofed up was the seat and the windscreen. I’m pretty much A-OK with everything else!
But of course YMMV...
I heard HRC stickers add like 3 HP; if only I still had a few; used the last one on my 86 VFR; could not keep the front wheel on the ground after that so had to sell.
downing a bottle of tequilla ... makes my bike "feel" like it has more horsepower....
but I'm guessing that has nothing at all to do with air intake. I could be wrong.... hmmm.....

Hey everyone thanks for the feedback. I filled the tank today 175.5miles2.34 gallon, this makes 8 fill-ups in a row over 72 mpg since I removed the snorkel .
Hey everyone thanks for the feedback.today l filled up the tank at175.5miles2.34gallonsthis makes 8 fill-ups in a row over 72 mpg so keep thinking.hint number 1 air temp.sensor.hint number 2 only a new filter will fix it.
