After riding Yesterday for a while, I come to discover that the Throttle response is Much less responsive with the 6" than the 3" which Does make sense to me. As for performance, It seems more sluggish for me with the 6".

Could be my Tune is off, So more tuning to come.

Short intake runners give better (quicker) throttle response. Long intake runners give more torque.
The automotive industry figured this out long ago. :wink:

The tricky part is finding that perfect middle ground to suit your riding style. That's the beauty of trial and error.

Ya homie..and what you are refering to is the intake manifold..not the air intake..
and that does not speak for a CV carb...
last I checked...cars don't have CV carbs
