Thoughts on an adjustable powerband

I just installed a red one on my kawi 250f and it added about 7.5 dynoed hp to the front wheel. it wasn't adjustable like that one though. I wish it were.

The best pairing (that I could think of, but I couldn't find the parts to make it fit the 250f) would be the yellow power band with the DEI (direct exhaust injection).

You need the heavy duty kevlar belted one, it plugs right into the dialytium hyper drive.

When you use an adjustable power band, do you have to change muffler bearings or is stock ok?

Don't ya'll know later model two strokes come with powervalves. The government makes the japanese build bikes to shut the valve at low speeds so you don't have too much power. With a power valve you don't flip over off the line taking off. That's why Harley's have so much torque. They are made in the USA and don't need powervalves. Except the V-Rod cause without a powervalve it would rip right out of your arms. They had to slow it down to keep the safety nazis happy. Go figure. Doesn't matter, cause it's still the fastest bike ever!

Just zip tie your valve actuator wide open and it will let in let in more power than you can possibly stand. My bike has tons of low end torque, even when I'm just kickstarting it.

And you only have to pay for a zip tie, not an aftermarket powerband (or two).
