Actually Chunky, on the bandits, that is not entirely true. Most Bandits will realize a 5-7HP gain, minimum by changing just the can. Only thing is that once you change the can you WILL have to fix the A/F mix on the carbs as these run lean from the factory and with the extra breathing, only leaner. However in this case its a INJ bike and the computer will do a good bit of the changing for him. I actually know someone who in only changing the headers, mid-pipe and can on a Bandit 1250 has picked up 27HP and something like 20 ft-lbs of torque. He has now been playing with the secondary butterflies and has figured out how to squeeze a few more HP out of the bike without even going into the motor. This is basically only cosmetic changes to the bike but allows it to breathe that much better!!
Oh yes but you HIGHLIGHTED the 27HP part as well, so that would be a bit confusing to the masses… even so, I would welcome anything that gave me a 5-7% HP boost and was as simple as changing the end can!
Carbon can co. do a lovely twin port number for the bandit with removable baffles. Although once youve had em out you’ll only ever put em back in once and then out they come on a more permanant status :D:D:D
