I defaffled the pipes (only the very centre ones), fitted an EJK controller and made my own BAK (RAMFLO 1000 series air filter, after removing the complete Kwaka air system). I now get 45 mpg no worries.
Goes like a rocket but the induction noises are big. I dont mind it too much its only when you wind it on hard.
We can only do 110kph over here, the wowsers wont let us go any faster. So the induction noise isnt a real problem when i'm cruising.
(secretly i love that huge induction noise, it sounds just like an old V8 with a four barrel carby).

Yes, but only from about 1/4 throttle to full throttle. Another PLUS would be the temperature of the air compared to stock.

By "wowsers" I take it that you mean the "bronze"

The only Ozzie slang I know is from Mad Max, Crocodile Dundee and ancient reruns of Skippy (The Bush Kangaroo)

I noticed that you have an EJK...I just installed mine but the temperature is currently hovering around 3C/37F.

I'm looking forward to thoroughly road testing my new Bully (EJK) as soon as we get some nicer weather. Our Canadian winter is just starting up here and I try not to drive the bike when black ice is a possibility.

Mad Max, top movie, if ya wanna see some typical Aussie humour watch a movie called "The Castle", its gold.I took the Nomad for a good run today, i'm more than impressed with its performance. Mid to high range torque is much better, i would be interested to Dyno it but over here it seems to cost a fortune. They want blood and ya first born child. We get temps that low here as well but we dont get the black ice unless we go up to the mountains and if ya go up there you can hear banjo's....(Deliverance)...
