New Air Filter = Crappy Fuel Economy & Top Speeds
Yep, you read that right. I changed out my filter on the all-stock 96 model. The filthy filter was netting me 70+mpg and 80+mph, the clean/new filter is getting me 60mpg and 65mph. Everything is seated/connected properly, I'm just going to have to blow off the old filter with my air compressor and slip it back in to restore the lost performance that the new filter is robbing.
"Ride Safe, Chop Safer" Motorcycles are not unsafe. However; they are extremely unforgiving of inattention, incompetence, ignorance, and stupidity.
Dismantling, sawzalling, and rattle canning does not make a bobber.
Those are STEPS toward customizing, not customizing unto itself.
