RE: Whatcha Got There?

The biggest gain from the GS tubes in my view is the elimination of the
flat spot that occurs at 4K RPM.  Your link shows the torque numbers
which confirms what most RS/RT riders clearly feel:  from 3.5K to 4K
torque drops from 89 to 83.  With the GS tubes both the torque and HP
curves are much smoother.

I have a page about the GS tubes. It has some info from Lentini and  
some pics I took during the swap out...
