I just saw a review of this in MXA... Need some real live feedback....Is this item really worth $499.00 & is the power increase: low, moderate or substantial? I realize the weight savings 2lbs.
Does the jetting need to be changed?

Hey Dave, It better be a 10 hp gain for that $$, what do you think of your DRD pipe?

I went to qualify for Loretta's last Sunday, crashed in practice, broke the bike(rearranged right radiator, and my a@#(very nice bruise). It was a very disappointing day man, my entire family was there and everything. Guess theres always next year, I'm getting tired of saying that though. Hows Big Gun's track??

I've got a DrD CF airbox coming in on Friday...didn't get it for more power...who needs more??? Weight saving is the only reason. 500 bucks for two pounds saving is pretty cheap....

I had the DrD wet sump installed last week (Larry Dukes at LSD did it for me...I think you know Larry...he said it was a pain in the a$$)and you can diffently feel the weight savings. Easier to flick around and less tiring. Sounds crazy to say that about 3.5 pounds.

And yes I am getting a 03 450.....someone will be getting a trick 01 cheap! I am the first one on the list at my dealer.

Dave are you going to Silver Dollar this weekend, if so look for a 01 with MGR on the shroud and a huge #8 on it...I always park down by the starting gate.

I don't know how similar the DSP CF airbox is to the DRD one but I just installed the DSP one on my bike with the Henry velocity stack last week and it made a big difference. It seemed to lean it out just slightly as the bike was popping a bit on deceleration but I haven't had time to play with the jetting as my rear hub is now busted to pieces. But I could not believe the mid range hit I'm getting now. The bike absolutely rips outa corners. Just my .02
