I recently bought my 1200 it runs great but I would like a little more power. Is there anything that I can do?

You could try and sync. your carbs check your air filter,and plugs, and dont forget your timing belts. Hal

make it breathe better. If you open up the intake and exhaust, rejet the carbs and improve the spark, you will see increases in power. A lot of this is DIY, but the exhaust is a little more tricky. If you can weld and fabricate that will be easy for you, if not you are farming it out.

Hold your mouth right when you're on the throttle...Mine always goes faster when I do that :lol: .. :lol: Set your plugs to the lowest settings get new caps and wires for your spark plugs and make sure it's a good clean connection at every connection... if you want a fast bike, Kawasaki is the way to go..suzuki perhaps
