Kind of makes me think of putting firmer springs in my la-z-boy to improve sitting performance.
I suspect you could have your pillion lose 20 lbs and have a bigger improvement in quarter mile times AND better cornering performance than this chip would give you an a LT. Not that I've met her, just sayin'...
My wife's cousin's husband came to the family July 4 party with a MV Agusta F4 1000R
I got to ride it on some county roads.
There were some noticable differences,
mostly that the front tire seemed to be filled with helium. It kept lifting off the pavement.
<-vs-> the K1200LT
Type: 4 cylinder, 4 stroke, 16 valve <--> 4 cylinder, 4 stroke, 16 valve
Total displacement: 998 cm3 <--> 1172 cm3
Compression ratio: 13:1 <--> 10.8:1
Bore x stroke: 76 mm x 55 mm
<--> 75 mm x 70.5 mm
Max. horse power 174hp @ 11900rpm
<--> 98hp @ 6750rpm
Max. torque - r.p.m.: 111Nm @ 10000rpm. <--> 115Nm @ 4750rpm
Dry weight: F4 1000 R 1+1: 189 Kg <--> 249Kg (without pillion)
Maximum speed: 187 mph
<--> 130 mph
Notice that the biggest difference is a shorter stroke. Maybe I could go into the business of selling crankshaft kits for the LT. On paper it looks like you could add 76 horses and 57 mph to top speed to the LT with such a kit.
