Xv920

A good friend of mine had an XV920 here in Montreal back in the early 90's. We went to a moto rally and he got it dynoed. It had a bad flat spot in the power curve. We removed the little intake snorkel that went from the air box to under the seat and the flat spot vanished. He also gained a noticeable increase in top speed. If I remember it put out something in the high 40's or low 50's in terms of HP. My GL1200 at the time cranked a mighty 77.......
