If/when you put these tubes on, make sure to notice the alignment marks on
the tubes. They line up with the center lines of the throttle bodies. If
you dont line them up exactly when you tighten the hose clamps, the bike
will run rough, like its out of synch. When you get it right, the bike
runs a little smoother than with the RT tubes. Even < off makes a
difference. Its not rocket science to figure it out if you have the
knowledge that the tubes have to align with the throttle bodies, but its
really puzzling trying to figure out whats wrong if you dont align these
