[QUOTE=elsalvadorklr;18609774]sorry the H is silent down here and Im used to messaging in spanish so the J substitutes the H jajajajajaja

I feel that changing a name is a bit complicated at this point or not?




I'm a little slow. I figured you were an American expatriate living in EL Salvador. Your English is excellent. I'm just give you crap about your name. I'm just happy you're on an L now

hey everybody,

im about to do daves mods and would like to know what others have changed to improve it. ive read about drilling the slide to different sizes and would like to know what the benefit to that would be. i have a dynojet kit too (not real happy with it), so should i use the dj spring too? i would like the best low to mid power gain and better throttle response. i want to keep the stock exhaust, and upgrade to an aftermarket filter so my next question is what filter are you most happy with? what would offer the best filtration? i ride alot of dirt roads and usually end up behind a horse trailer or something .
also, how big a difference was the power and gas mileage compared to stock? the bike seems a little boggy when trying to get the front off the ground (i dont really have another bike to compare it to so maybe its just me) but can get over 60mpgs when im easy on it. what can i do to improve power along with the mods with out sacrificing mpgs? its a daily commuter to work at about 50 miles round trip.

thanks,
MO.
