I like my flapper flapping.

I did the flapper mod today with my stock set up and I thought I'd throw in my $.02. I did feel the slight increase in low end snap and I did feel as if it was softer on top (maybe not but that's what it felt like). The biggest differance was that it wasn't smooth when I rolled on the throttle from lower RPM's. This may be it's real intended function since my bike didn't get much nosier. It didn't take long before I decided to hook it back up.

I like the driveability of the bike with the flapper flapping I guess. I'll do it again after my exhaust comes in the mail.

I think I'm in the minority here. Lets find out.

The reason it feels a little softer up top is due to the power being there before it hits that majic rpm. I notice while wheeling in first gear, I find it easier to get the front tire off the ground at low rpm's and I don't have to worry about that kick at 6000 rpm while i'm at 12:00.

Besides replacing my rearviews and a partial baffelectomy (series of drilled holes), this is the only mod to my otherwise stock bike. You know....I don't remember the difference but I really like how she's running right now, I'm not going back. I do think that the machine pulls real consistantly from about 5 grand on up to 8 and a half.

mine as well. I do notice the hard pop at 6 grand even with the mod. I have the pcIII and 2 mothers pipes. The pull from 5500 rpm on is bang'n. I did the mod before the pipes and did notice a change. I think it is good. When I pulled the plug, I bloced it with a tire valve cap and it screwed on perfectly. It is easy to switch and feel the difference.

I agree. I did mine and switched back a long time ago. The bike seemed not as smooth with the mod and I felt no increase in performance. It's an easy fix so why not play?

Whatever you do with the flapper mod, just don't let your Jingle-Jangle dangle in the dirt. I'm just sayin...

Well, fire the engines! Spur this iron space-pony on!

pretty sure you have to have load on the engine for it to flap...
