anybody tested/tried the Stage One racing heads yet?
or how about the ignition amplifier?
I'm curious as to how well they perform and how much difference they make to the bike.

I have the Ignition Amplifier on my Tuono R. I did a before and after dyno comparison. For the before dyno, my bike had the Evo Race airbox, throttle bodies, '00 air intake, RSC Ti slip-on and chip. I found that adding the ignition amplifier made no difference on the dyno. Zero hp or torque gain anywhere.
On the road I really couldn't tell a difference either. If someone came along and unplugged it I don't think I would know.
I called Evoluzione (who makes the thing) and talked to someone there (not Ken Zeller) to see if maybe I had installed it incorrectly. They told me to regap my spark plugs, which I had done, and then said "oh, well you shouldn't really expect any hp gains from that anyway." I wish they had mentioned that along with the dyno chart that shows some pretty substantial hp gains.

interesting..thats about what I figured because the bike already has dual plugs per cylinder, which would typically address any dificiency with combustion.
Thanks for the advice though, good to hear from someone who has tried it before I spent hard earned cash on it for nothing.

Dual plugs and four separate coils to boot. Glad I read this, I've got mine set up same as theImmoralist, but with the irridium plugs & silicone wires as well. One less pricey add on to try and talk myself out of . . . whew . . . wait . . . what's this?! The full Akro sbk setup w/cf cans for $1250 + shipping in the used parts forum!? . . . . . . . . . . . . . . ieeeeeeeeeeeee!!!!!!! :eek:

I was very suspicious of a benifit from this item. After all, we're not talking 1971 ignitions here. The current state of modern ignitions, especially on performance motorcycles, is not something that can really be improved on much.
Its over $200bucks too!
