Scooternut,

You can increase the power to the rear wheel by bolting on a LeoVince 4road exhaust. Other replacement pipes exist but there is no data on their effect. Leo will give you an extra 4-6 hp @ the rear wheel.

It sounds like you want to better access the power you have rather than to create more power.
3 ways to better access the available power:

1. you can change the variator, to J.Costa brand.
2. you can change the weights in the current variator. Most use Dr. Pulley Sliders for this.
3. you can add a Dynojet power commander.

The PC remaps the fuel-air mixture for smoother performance across the power band.

For more information use the search feature with terms above.

More power=buy a motorcycle. SilverWing in standard form works fine and can be worked on by any Honda shop.

The courteous thing to do would be to first post your introduction when joining the forum. You can do that in the, ahem, "Introductions" section of the Forum.

Hi Scooternut,

Buy some non ethanol gas. That will increase power for ya.

I am over by the Edmonds / Everett area.

The cheapest and easiest solution to more power would be to install 24gr Dr Pulley sliders. It doesn't change the hp but will make it much quicker though. Other than that you would have to spend some dollars on a Leo Vince, power commander, and k&n air filter and have it dyno'd. But try the 24 gr Dr Pulley's first...you may be impressed.

The cheapest way is for the rider to lose weight. At least some of us. Shocked
