Just curious what was the final consensus on the benefit of this part. Any benefits?
I know it is the combination of things that make it happen but will it make difference on the usual bolt ons?

Yes, smoother idle and less vibration throughout the rev range, plus slight increase in performance. A good mod for the money, imo.

I have had several project with BTK and never had a bad experience. As others have mentioned, his quality was and is not the question. I have a ceramic BTK power pipe that I installed. I have no dyno number to support any claims (so i wont make any), but will say that I would pay for another in a heartbeat. In fact...I would say its a M U S T- D O- I T E M IF YOU ARE GOING TO DO HC PISTONS, PORTED HEADS AND VALVES.

*** The item that PR sells is similar to the BTK power pipe in the fact that it is a manifold for the rear jug...thats about it. The "boring out" to enlarge the ID of an OEM part is negligible when compared to the BTK power pipe... a house cat and a lion are "similar"... The BTK power pipe not only uses much larger tube stock, but has a straighter path while still keeping OEM connection points.

I agree, and very glad I got mine when I did.

He did a really nice job on my swingarm too and did not charge me for the hidden caliper mod and to smoothen all the welds on both item.
