V Star 1300

Would only adding a BAK have the same gains as only adding an exhaust?
I typically only add exhaust (slip-ons) to my bikes and it seems to wake them up.
I've never done a BAK, much less only a BAK.
Can't find a black exhaust at a reasonable price and Cobra isn't making a black slip-on.

I don't know how much it would cost, but I'm pretty sure you can have the xhaust Powder Coated.

If you install a BAK or any open intake, You'll need free flowing xhaust - more air in-more air out.
And probably a fuel tuner.

Right now I'm running a Cobra Power-Flo with a Cobra 2 into 1 slipon.

I'm hoping that next month I can send the ECU to Ivan.

Talking

Looking at his data, going with just a BAK would really benefit this bike.
Not going to worry about an exhaust after seeing the dyno results.
Keeping this one quiet would be nice, I'll be able to enjoy the music.
I'll save up for for the Ivan tune.

Now I'm going to need a BAK and Ivan tune for the Stryker also.
It already has the Cobra slip-on on it, this is my loud bike.

Never realized how much I was leaving on the table without getting a BAK.

Question

So you're running intake and exhaust without any tuning?
Wouldn't that make the bike run too lean?

My bad. I should have mentioned I have a Cobra fuel tuner.

Oh OK.
I was just wondering how it ran without tuning.

At the risk of sounding inferior i know with an air cooled bike if you alter exhaust you can run lean. Does a fuel tuner work on carb as well as injected bike? I know mine was rejetted for the pipes before i bought it. Running lean and hot is that what discolors chrome pipes?

I ain't lost until the tank is empty!

If your bike is carburated it needs to be rejetted & pms adjusted.

Thanks that is what i thought just making sure i am thinking correctly. Most of my bikes in my previous life were liquid cooled. Before i bought my classic i assumed that yamahas were liquid cooled. When he told me it was rejetted and tuned i looked and didn't see a radiator and a light bulb went on.
