Torque master

Has anyone installed one of these Torque masters on their Roady?

No, but I installed a set of them on my 2000 V-Star 1100 about 5 years ago. From what I remember, I did not have to take the carbs totally off and I just unbolted them from the manifold and pushed them out of the way. I then seated the rings into the intake ports, but it was a tight fit and it took a little time to do it. The toughest part was dealing with the sharp edges of the rings. I had to push them in place with a flat blade screwdriver that would sometimes slip under pressure.

I think so, whether it was real or imaginary the bike did seem to have a little more torque and the gas mileage seemed to improve, as well.

Plus it was a relatively inexpensive modification and I felt it was worth giving it a shot.
