low end throttle

Is there anything to do to make the 'off the line' torque better on the 1600 classic. Ive done the caddman mod, the resistor mod and de-baffled the stock pipes. Its wonderful, when you are full-on wide open, but I would like some more pull from the start. Does a fuel processor help with that, or pipes??
Or is that just the way the engine is tuned?

PD

De-baffling the stock pipes gets you louder sound but not much air flow, so aftermarket pipes would help and then add a fuel processor to put it all together. With all the changes you are still not going to be that fast off the line, but it does help. On my bike I did it all, and it did run great, nice pull etc., I went back to stock intake with just the K and N air filter replacing the stock one, leaving the V and N pipes (with same stove pipe rope wrapping the baffles), and adjusting the FI2000 for that set-up. This gives me better than stock low end, but on the highway I do not have the louder pipes and intake (air sucking in sound) to deal with.

Help that helped up, mj

Dyno tune.
It eliminates the guesswork and shows your engine current state of tune and whether it needs to be dialed in.
