People like you are annoying.

I'm merely offering insight as to the differences proper maintenance can make.

Aftermarket exhaust is really for weight loss. Power will only come with fuel and ignition map.

And again, saying it FELT like 5hp going from nasty nasty dirty to perfectly clean

I'm so happy for you that your drive train is "perfectly" lubed. Now clean your panties out of your sandy vag and chill the out. You sound like a cry baby with a clean chain and a new tune. Maybe just maybe, it's people like YOU that are actually the annoying ones. Sorry you misread MY tone

BTW your post said nothing of a tune adjustment. Only that you lubed a few things and put back together to spec.

I love the "who got bent out of shape" game. I'm chill as the dairy section homie.

Sorry I forgot to mention a tuning change. Had the pig wheeled into the office so I could with it. Leaned it by 5% across the board.

But really though, I got worked up about nothing. You just didn't like my reply. So just gtfo of the thread if you don't like what you read... Just like your mommy told you as a kid, "if you don't have anything nice to say..." Lol




This started as a thread about my personal experience with why maintenance is so important. To me it's longevity, performance and seat-of-the-pants feedback. So seriously dude/dudes... you're annoying Trolls

My mom never told me that. She said "there will always be people that get hurt on the internet and then deny it".

I put your toothbrush in a special place

That will explain that special smell of your breath.

Brass wire brush and toothbrush. Pre soak it with penetrant lube. Detergent and corrosive cleaners damage o-rings in the chain.
