LOL.....there have been hundreds of 1100 riders that did exactly what you did. No increase in performance....all you did was cut off a small supply of air to the exhaust pipe. There is nothing there that can add more HP...better gearing....or anything else.....unless you had something totally messed up in that area to start with.....like a vacuum leak. In that case, yes...you'd get back to stock performance.
But if you feel like it is faster....that's cool. If you want to find out for sure, have it dyno'd and tell us how many HP over 55 it is.....
