The only thing I don't like are higher rpm's and lower gas mileage. I put on 70 miles when the gas gauge just went to half a tank, is that normal?4500 rpm's at 40 mph seems high but I like the throaty sound, don't need exaust system now.Now I need a power commander to get my gas mileage back just installed the J Costa one word AWESOME Icon_mad

tank,

The same thing happened to me when I first installed it but I soon learned to control the throttle. Try practicing not giving so much throttle when taking off. When I installed mine I would take off the same way as when the bike was stock and you will really take off fast. Also, when you get going and then you go a constant speed limit the rpm's usally drop some. You might want to follow a car when taking off from stop lights to help you not take off so fast too. That is what I did to try to get used to not giving much throttle. The J. Costa really gets the SWing going fast from a start.

Good luck and keep us informed. But it will take a couple of tanks of gas before you get used to it. But it is fun though...isn't it.

Wing:
Too funny! I does sound a bit ironic doesn't it, but since the worst fuel economy I have ever had with my Swing is between 46 and 47 mpg, I would have to say that for me it is well worth it and having the ability to go faster/quicker when you need (or want) to is worth a lot.
