Like most power plant mods its to get more better power.  I wish I knew more.  Fred does visit here once and a while and he would be the egg spurt on this maybe.  Other ways ya might have to go visit zg/gtr forum, lots of threads there on it.  I know that with the flies out and the power commander change it sounds like you get a scary strong bike.  Not something I am really looking for.  For me a stock 14 would be plenty.  ----------------------------------  I will answer any question.  It is up to you to figure out if I should have.    <p align="left">My Photos<br

There is a lot of infomration and details online regarding this proceedure.  If you are an experienced rider (As we would hope, dropping $12+k down on a heavier and strong bike) You will find the 12#+ of extra low end torque most useful.  It is still not clear why they added them for a shart drive sport tourer but for sure they will not be reinstalled for me.

There has been different reports about economy.  For   me, it seemed to improve maybe 2 mpg.  My average is   about 38 mpg in mixed driving.  Highway is the same;   about 42mpg (I'm at sealevel)
