Velocity Stacks

I noticed from another post that a member used aftermarket velocity stacks on his bike? What for?

Can somebody explain to me what aftermarket velocity stacks do?

I guess the best way to do it would be to let me know what the stock velocity stacks do and then how performance can be enhanced with aftermarket stacks....I'm clueless on this. And where did he buy these?

To be honest, I have heard of velocity stacks and what I had heard about them was good. So when I did mine, the shop that I took my bike to suggested them and I went with it. Here is something that I found about velocity stacks. My shop said that they built them for me. So I dont exactly know where to get them. http://en.wikipedia.org/wiki/Velocity_stack

More air equals more hp. Hp prob went up 1-2 hp so its not the biggest power mod going. A dyno tune is usually needed along with aftermarket stacks too.

found a site that sells them in a range of sizes...i guess the next thing would be to know the current sizes in the stock 08-09.

I know, that's what I said. Honda Powersports has it listed at $996.51. The part number in case anyone is interested is 06160-NLR-A30.

A Japanese site has it listed at 79,800 yen which is around $812.

I don't know what Honda is thinking. The stock ones are only around $35. And the funny thing is, if you order each one separately it's cheaper than ordering them as a set . Each one is listed at $171.26 and 13,500 yen (about $137). So ordering separately it would be $741.29 ($685.04+$56.25 for the bolts) or 58,300 yen (about $591).

So, my question is, how much would you be willing to sell them for? Or better yet, could you just take measurements of the ones you have for those of us who don't mind just cutting the stock ones down?

hrc offers 2 styles of the late model version of stacks. the late model as in large bell design with a dimpled finish. standards are 45mm long outers and 25mm centers and optionals are 55mm and 35mm. hrc configures them opposite as stock. taller on outer and shorter in center. velocity stacks are not designed to give more power, just move it from one rpm range to another. in general short for top end and long for low end power enhancement.
