real simple.....there is an exhaust restrictor cone welded just a few millimeters down the head pipe.

You can use almost any grinding tool......a drill with a grinding stone would work too.

grinding....i use a carbide bit on an air grinder, but almost anything would work.

LOL, when people ask and people aswer them with a riten tutorial, it sounds harder than it is. By looking at the pics makes me think, how can it be so easy compared to when people explain.

thanks for that, cleared some stuff of my head.

Well, i just use a screwdriver...it take 3 minutes or so to break it loose, did that on the previous Leo's and the one i got right now...well at the first one i did it like the pictures show..until i found the "right" and quicker way to do it.

Which one gives out the best performance?
As soon as i've got my insurance sorted,from a recent crash(some nob drove into the side of me) and i know wots happening with the bike, i'm buying a 21 dell'orto off you craig,with reeds and all that,but wot is a boost bottle? an wot gains did you get from you velocity stack?


05-10-2003, 02:34 PM
havent fitted the stack yet... want an airbox lid... also forgot the q's to your e-mail... well i wouldnt bother with the boost bottle... many topics on here about it... not much a gain involved/never tried... also the cdi i wouldnt bother its mainly for racing that one.....
