I am not trying to attack you in any way, that is just a fact that most "new" riders don't like to hear and deal with. as others have said, spend the money on more important things such as your suspension, a real damper, frame sliders and things of that nature. i realize you want it to sound good but don't buy something for HP alone because as i said above, i bet you don't use all of what is currently available to you now.
it pushes around 108 stock. i grew up riding in the dirt, my first street bike was a honda magna and i had a lot of seat time on a bandit 1200 before i bought my 600. i am anything but new to two wheels. so dont make generalized statements about people you have no idea about. whats wrong with wanting my bike to sound better while gaining a little performance out of it? and why do i need "plans" for extra horse power? dont worry i have enough money to buy all the suspension stuff i want. i might even be able to afford a roll of blue tape when its all said and done so i can be as cool as you bud.
