Do a search for "flapper mod". You'll find more than enough information, rather than waiting for someone to explain it. Happy Hunting!

Re: flapper flipper flia HUH what?

Not all bikes are the same. Some are very different, LoL. Which is why thecall them 929's and 954's. Actually 03 954 was the last "true" fireblade made. The guy who originally designed them retired shortly after the release. Awwwwww..Anyways, yeah flapper mod, u'll be glad u did it. I get a little throttle happy with mine sometimes. Oh well its great!!!!...

Re: flapper flipper flia HUH what?

Will the flapper mod cause a loss of mid range power?

Re: flapper flipper flia HUH what?

Took my 06 CBR1000 out for its second ride today. It is very twitchy at about 3000RPM. Is this what the flapper mod is designed to correct? Is there any reason to wait for the bike to be broken in before completing the mod? Thanks.

Re: flapper flipper flia HUH what?

My 929 also has some bog below 3000 so if you open the throttle too much below 3000 as it passes that rpm it really takes off.

No need to wait. Flap is closed from 0 to 3k rpm so the bike can pass emissions. When you unhook the hose it leaves it open, you'll notice the growl immediately.

Re: flapper flipper flia HUH what?

I thought the flapper was there to reduce noise and improve midrange power. I can't see how it would affect emissions. I am thinking about trying it just to see how it sounds.

Re: flapper flipper flia HUH what?

As far as I knew the emissions are not tested below 3,000rpm, are they? I though noise/emission was around 5-6k, hence the drop off of power around this mark. I think removing the flapper improved the engine response around this mark, and other dyno charts I searched on the net tend to agree - not seen any reports on the 1000cc though
