What's dramatic about Lentini's dynamometer data is the drop in torque
from 89 (ft. lbs.?) at 3500 RPM to 83 at 4000. With the GS tubes the
drop in the same RPM range is from 92 to 90. The intake tube change
eliminates a very noticeable flat spot right in the fat of the midrange.
Anybody with an 1100 RT or RS that has not installed the GS tubes is
missing out on the cheapest and best modification you could possibly
make to these bikes.

Here's a quote from Lentini about the testing he did, and some pictures
I took when I swapped out my '94 RS' tubes for GS tubes...
