Wondering if anyone has installed thre Bazzaz Z-fi unit with the stock exhaust?
I agree, but, apparently that's the plus for this piece of equipment, user friendly with own computer for self mapping. My bike definately has more torque off the line, no doubt about it; then again, it's nicely broken in with no babying. Bike rides better every time I hop on, and definately loves to be pushed.I'm interested in this set up too, but seems to be zero info on it. Even from Bazzaz.
Tiz a pity because if they just did a dyno with it, and it was positive I'm sure they'd sell more than a few extra units.
I might be wrong, but my suspicion is that the fuel metering is more of a culprit than the muffler in holding the power back.In the event anyone DOES wanna post about using the Z-Fi with stock exhaust, I'm also very curious about this as well. I switched over to this bike from a cruiser with Vance & Hines pipes. I'm done with loud bikes but want a little more torque. I've seen a lot of good reviews for the Bazzaz unit. Any thoughts on this matter would be appreciated.
Your experience is inline with what was told to me by my mechanic who is also a dynojet tuning center. I was getting my frame sliders installed along with a few other things (came in for oil swap and labor was included so why not) and picked his brain while he was tuning a bmw s1000rr for dragging (btw, that bike was putting out 194 hp at the wheel and he was certain he could get 195).Also....my fuel economy went UP an few MPG.
