Re: Velocity stacks

Wasn't someone buying a pair of those Factory Stacks from Ebay and giving them a go?

Re: Velocity stacks

I have a set and will be dynoing the 954 here as soon I have some time. Work is killing me, way too much OT.

Re: Velocity stacks

No you can't. The radius at the opening of the stack is very important to performance.

This is not just conjecture, a member tried it on the dyno a long time ago...

NO! Someone on this site tried that and screwed up the air delivery. The horn at the end of the stack is crucial!

Re: Velocity stacks

I have an 01 Erion w/ the serpents, pcIIIr,fiberglass CAI's and the velocity stacks from Factory Pro. After installing them the initial thing I noticed was more "intake honk". Quite a bit more noise when rolling the gas open. In the ole "butt dyno" w/ the full system already in place, I felt alittle more from around 7000- redline. I cant give you numbers but I did feel a small difference and that was good enough for me. Also, the intake noise sounds really good.

Re: Velocity stacks

Thanks for th einfo - sound slike there may be some truth to the claims. Having said that, for me anyway, having a better intake noise alone is almost worth it...

that might have been me...I did lose HP when I cut the factory stacks down to the height of the aftermarket ones..

I got more HP by removing the stock air filter and putting in a home made Uni element filter...on the dyno..that made as much HP as having no air filter.

Re: Velocity stacks

Something that I tried and am still doing is using the velocity stacks out of a 2000 CBR 1100XX. They don't fit exactly but with a little modifying they do the job. They are about half the height of our stockers. The two on the end are slightly shorter than the inside two (similar to ours). Definately hear the "growl" quite a bit more. Not sure on performance. Seat of the pants, I cannot say I noticed much. No dyno results either. Just thought it may give you another option if you want to "tinker" with the idea. I am not sure how much the 1100XX stacks are (I got mine for FREE).

Re: Velocity stacks

I called up FactoryPro and talked to the owner. Got a really good deal on the stacks, advancer and new shift star. All shipped for pretty much retail cost of the price of the stacks
