Cobra all the way.

I've added the Cobra Swept exhaust and Cobra air intake both in black, and topped it off with the Cobra auto tuner CVT. Looks and runs great.

Looks good. I have a set of slip on mufflers on my 1700 and the power pro sitting here in the box waiting to be installed. Next up will be the air mod but I want to put some time on the bike with the power pro added first to get a seat of the pants assessment. Once the air box is on I'll get it on a dyno for a couple runs to see some numbers. I'm sure it will be someplace in the 8x/9x hp/torque range.

My ass dyno says maybe 10% HP boost. Just hooked them up and went. I figured sticking with the same manufacturer reaps all of the technology put into the products, as they are all related. So far so good. Throttle response is right there. The get up and go is noticeable right away. BTW these pipes are LOUD.

Love the look, I have the swepts and the fuel management. Just ordered the PowrFlo Air Intake System however in chrome. They are loud pipes but I don't really hear them much when riding, if someone else takes it for a spin I get to hear the sound and really like it. I also have the front SW pulley I am going to install as well. Seem to keep looking for that 6th gear and hope this solves it. But when needed (tire wears out) will go to the bigger 200 probably.

Fits right in. I hated that big old 900 cover.
