The standard performance improvements are:
J Costa Variator
Leo Vince 4 road exhaust
Power Commander (Custom mapped by your local dynojet shop)

These will give you the best performance your Silverwing is capable of,
short of turbocharging. Faster pickup, smooth power curve.

lesley,

The J. Costa is the best performance mod you can do to the SWing. It also smooths things out too. I had it installed for about 1 1/2 years but I was putting a bunch of miles on my SWing and the pins only last about 9,000 miles for me. So I was changing them out at least yearly. I may buy a new set of pins and reinstall it since i'm not putting the 10,000-11,000 miles a year on it anymore. But it will really surprise you.

There is also a "Pictorial" in the "Pictorial Section" if you decide to do this. You can also print it out to give to your mechanic since some probably don't have too much experience with these, or the SWing.

I upgrade from Honda variator to Dr Pulley to JCosta. I still dont understand why 2 disks can be so differently formed that the difference in performance is just mind blowing.
Riding with JCosta over 3 years some 30.000 miles or there about. total mileage over 50k.

JCosta + Hit CLutch is the HIT . full stop.
