Well, From what I've heard, some people say it works great and some say it doesn't, some people said they had no problems with rejetting it to work right, and some said it's taken up to 10 hours to get it running right.

The dyno graphs show around a 2 hp increase and a 3-4 tq increase, It's more about it's looks then a power increase (atleast for the 750's)

I dont know for sure, but I had thought about putting one on my SS750. Then I read somewhere that it's not ideal if you are riding in the rain. I spend way too much time in wet weather, so I decided it wasnt worth the hassle.

YMMV

Yall ride safe...

hypercharger

Ya I have one on my 06 spirit. Now it was installed before i got the bike, but i know it was rejetted mainly i think because of the vance and hines pipes. But the only problem that i have is when it gets colder out it tends to cough a bit when holding it at a constant lower rpms. But it does get and go when u crack the throttle. of cource with the charger it allows more air into the engine and thus the coughing jsut may need a littel more fuel. hope this helps.


Keep the shiny side up and ride safe

hypercharger

hey shadow 3 - thanks for the feedback. i have read that there can be some tinkering with the air/fuel mixture after install. but i like to hear what you said about response when you crack the juice. and with some cool color butterfly valves on that sucker, it'll look like something out of mad max. i love it. :shock:

I had a Hypercharger on my Aero 750 and it took a dogs age to get the jetting right and it was never perfect, I switched to a Thunder kit. Easier to jet and to me gives better performance.
