Not going to gain much in HP that way unless your bike isn't running well now or your air filter is clogged. You might try running a tank of fuel with some injector cleaner in it if its not running well.

With fuel injection there are programmers for performance.

There are lots of ways to spend money, but not much to gain unless you dig deep in both your pockets and the engine.

Think about it this way, stock it is a 750cc engine with a very mild cam fed through a 34mm throttle body, changing all the gizmos feeding that or exhausting that may add a couple of horsepower or change the sound, but it will not really make much of a difference in the 60 to 80 mph charge.
You might pull a bike length or so vs. a stock one.

You
have to ask yourself is it worth it?

V&H Short shots, Cobra fuel controller, open up intake hose and put in a K&N air filter and Pulstar spark plugs. a definite big improvement in speed, quickness and fuel mileage!

Thanks everyone for the response. Think I’m better off saving the money and enjoying the ride. Thanks all.
