So I'm going in for my 1000 mile service on the 29th. Anyway, I'm having the 16 gauge SEs, running it topless, and putting a 28t sprocket on. I ran into a guy at the gas station with an 03 the other day. He told me that he has the above setup (minus the 28t sprocket), and at about 7000 rpm it feels like a turbo kicks in or something. What has been everyone elses experience with this setup? Do you get more power throughout the power band, or more of a hit at a certain RPM like this guy described to me? Also, is there much power difference between running topless and having the SE high flow air filter? Was a bit undecided on the two, just because I didn't want to take a chance of getting the filter wet when washing it or stuck in the occasional downpour.
