    I would be curious to know, where you feel that? Having played with a plethora of bikes and power manipulations that were confirmed (or not) on a dynamometer, I have yet to be able to feel something like a 16% peak torque increase, especially when it is from 119 to 139 lbft at somewhere around 4,000 rpm. I could feel 20 lbft torque increase on my Harley EVO, but that was from 60 to 82 lbft at 2,000 rpm.

    Thanks. That was the answer I needed.

    But Mom, I've never found "well enough".

    I'm about 250lbs and often tour with my wife/luggage. The power at about 5k is much more pronounced with the Remus headers. If you're running "light", e.g. just a rider at 180 lbs, no luggage, etc, then you may not feel much difference. But when you're carrying the weight I am you do. I ride pretty hard ALL the time and with the headers don't have to drop a gear in the mid-range like I use to. The last custom bagger I built had an S&S 124" Twincam, crate motor. It initially dyno'ed at 130 lbft torque. I had the heads ported/flowed and switched to Woods cams. Subsequent dyno was just under 150 lbft. I really felt that! To me, 10% or > torque is very noticeable.
