    Velocity stacks

    Anyone have a used set of velocity stacks that attach to the diaphragm caps of the 1200? I know I can get them new for around 150, but, money is tight and I just wanted to get a set saving a little. Just thought I'll reach out and see...thanks, Steve Kent

    Velocity Stacks

    I read the sticky and I'm going to try it out, I couldn't find copper than wasnt exorbitantly expensive so I went with some 2" stainless exhaust pipe from autozone for 16 bucks, I also found that the 2" fernco fittings were 2 and a 1/4 so I went with 1" 1/2 ferncos that fit with a little...

    velocity stacks in air box

    inside the velocity stack, yamaha created a high velocity port just before the carb venturi, meaning they made the velocity stack smaller by 19 % , for about 1.5 inch to accelerate the air speed to get better atomization at the needle and get more air into the pilot jet. did a test cut the...

    flatslide carbs with velocity stacks

    Group, I'm in the process of purchasing a VMAX with this set up. 4" velocity stacks are in use right now. I expect that I'll need to change them, they're real awkward with a riders knees. One of the frequent contributors to this forum has modified 4" stacks with a 45 degree twist, to offer...

    Velocity Stacks

    Hello....While attending the Canadian Superbike finals today in Shannonville Ontario, I saw a (built 12/99) year 2000 Vmax carbon in the parking lot pulling a small trailer. It had some very tasteful mods on it and I stopped to take a look. In place of the diaphragm covers there seemed to be...

    Stage 7 with Velocity Stacks

    No stack at all pulls hard 7 K up and the mid range is soft. 4 inch stack pulls good low from 3-8 but will starve out up top. Short stack 2 inches better in top end. 3 inch stack allows me to pull down to 2000 rpm and up to 9500. With the K&N filters and stacks I had to put the float bowl...

    Velocity Stacks

    i saw somewhere it said that using velocity stacks, maybe 1 or 2" tall, inbetween the KN pods and carburators makes the bike run better? Anyone ever done this? Or heard of it? where did you get it? Also if I have stage 7 kit I can never go back to stock right? How about stage 1 could i do...
