I for one think we have allot of great minds here on this forum, and want to take advantage of it and get some topics started.

I am starting this thread to see what the guys in the Doo forum want to talk about, and then I will start a thread on it.

porting, Clutching, pipes, etc.... what do you think?

I for one would like to talk or do some explinations on Shimming vs Porting, as I have recieved allot of PM on it lately.

I say we talk a little about pipes.

There seem to be many brands and types and all put diffrent advantages on the table.

For the Mach Z I would look at Crankshop, Jaws, PSI, and such. PSI claims to be the best. They say that they have out done them self with the triple pipes for the mach. But yet everyone still uses crankshop and jaws. Why? What advantages do you have.

Also what about for the twins. 600ho, 800. What pipe works best on them. what do they offer you.

And lastly how loud are each of the pipes. Can they pass as a stock pipe or are they screamers.

For the price of a new set of pipes we sure dont know what were getting till its on and running.

Looking back, Only to see the sound barrier.

What about the difference between trying to beef up a smaller sled versus just trading up to the bigger motor. I see it all the time guys with 583's and 600's talking about aftermarket and hp gains and the such. How about save your money on aftermarket upgrades and trade up to a bigger machine. When I was buying the Rev, I just couldn't see myself on a 600, even though they are a great motor. Now if the 800 isn't good enough for me, well... I think I might have a problem, I could always put an 800 triple in the rev.

Personnally I think clutching would be a great one. There are too many people out there that just do not know about properly setting up clutches. Usually this is not because they can not do it but they lack the tech info to make the correct choices. Heck with riders changing brands to ride the REV's a whole new batch of people will need to be educated on the TRA clutches and the RER secondary. Remember it doesn't matter what you do to your engine if you can't clutch it effectively your mods are being wasted.

what I am trying to accomplish is to have the members start to bring their good info to the table and bring it out in the open.

We have allot of great minds here, lets use em!

Like the Mach pipes are a good idea, then Marty should start a thread on it.

Hey guys, I heard that Jaws makes some of the pipes for Crank Shop. As far as the triple pipes, I think Jaws and Crank Shop is the way to go but, just as rob7374 said, the clutching has to be spot on for anything to work properly. Heck I think doing just clutching is money ahead of buying noisy pipes. Some pipe manufacturers say you gain horsepower but in reality on the dyno, numbers don't lie but some pipes make you lose power.

I agree with Idooski. You think 800MXZ is just one of those unshaven hillbillys and then he comes up with all these great ideas. LOL Dave!
