I ordered mine today.

Will it fix my, just off idle flat spot? Or do I have to muck about with the carbs to sort that?

In all fairness and respectfully....we don't know if this is accurate as a no baffle (2 into 2) to no baffle (2 into 1) dyno has not been performed....I am watching this thread with great interest but I for one would like to see a completed test before hp numbers start getting thrown around..

Minor delay on the ADV 2 into 1's

Update: We've run into a minor (less than 2 weeks, hopefully) delay on the ADV 2 into 1's. The first article came in, and the fit is close, but not perfect, and I'd rather get it right up front.



It looks good, though, yes?

The SE 2 into 1's are being coated as I write this. No final delivery date but we are very close!

I also have a substantive update on the tank to give soon. I have a CNC model of it, which I'm tweaking and working on mounts for... another post on that when it's ready to go.

Placed order this week, looks good fellas!
Ned, any sense on how the stock 2 into 2 power curves compare with the baffled 2 into 1? Probably a good baseline test right? I know you had to be selective with your dyno time, but just curious.
Your hard work is much appreciated.

Dyno Readings as quoted

Were they with the modified stocker (with h pipe) or with the new Nedie special?

True. Honestly, the takeaway point for me is that the 2 into 1 runs about the same, or a little better, and I have never had a complaint of a lack of power on the LC8's, so that's good enough for me. I do have a complaint of too much weight, and it meaningfully addresses that, and it opens the option for the tank and so on.

I'm far from an expert on this subject, but my sense is that end-can flow is not the major issue in LC8 power. Baffles obviously slow down the party by a few horsepower (which is pretty meaningless in the scheme of things) and stockers are probably (having dissected a set) along the same lines... but I don't believe that there is a huge amount of power to be had even by going to an open pipe.

All the options I've run, baffle in, baffle out, remus, neptune, and stock (on the 990, the dyno is down right now so I don't have a final run of 990 stock vs. 990 2->1 w/ Remus) have been within a 6 peak hp range, with minor fluctuations in torque and delivery. In the scheme of things, the best run vs. the worst run, wouldn't ride all that differently in the real world, if it was a good road and a nice turn, you'd have a smile on your face with either one.

That said, the best run came on a 2 into 1 (although, as Nowwhat has pointed out, the test methodology is not perfect).

The most recent runs were with the production item (with no crossover pipe).

Good work, Ned......this is a secret pre-production version , and it's very, very good. The final ones you folks are getting are even nicer, with a proper thermal coating and such.

Yes. I've got a sample from a vendor which looks good, we're working on getting the design production ready (parting line for the mold, correct draft angles, etc) and I spent last Sunday test fitting a CNC (wooden!) model I had made to both an Adventure and an SE.

Like a fookin' moron I didn't take many pics (other than super detailed ones for fitment). But, here's one:



It can't move fast enough for me, but I'm trying to make sure I get it right the first time around, because there's no way in hell I can afford a second pass.

Hi Ned.
I notice that the SE in the pic has a pillion footrest hanger fitted. Just for your information the UK bikes don't have rear footrests. (Mine doesn't anyway) so a bracket might be needed perhaps.
Looks good to me though. Quite large. I reckon it would hold a fair bit.

What's not to love!

Regarding the pillion pegs, we'll have an additional kit for that purpose. About half the US ones came with pegs, about half not. We'll try to keep the cost as low as possible.
