  • Is a BAK and ported intake worth the gains on My 07 Roadstar

    Greetings Form Sacarmento. I'm new as a member but the site has been the go to on many occasions for My Roadstar questions. So I am looking to add the Barons Big Air kit with and ported intake and was wondering if there is a bang for the buck performance increase on this specific bike. I am not new to motorcycles and know how to increase performance through exhaust and intake upgrades, etc. It seems to me that for around $500 I can really upgrade the performance, but then on the other hand my bike rips anyway and I also have the opinion that if its good stock then why mess with anything. I was wondering if their are any longevity issues and will I notice a improvement. I am sure this topic has been discussed before and any direction will be appreciated.

    I think we have all opened up our intakes and exhausts! There's hardly a stock air box and filter, or exhaust system on anyone's bike here... Is there? I use a K&N universal air filter, a ported intake, the Dyna 3000 ignition box, and freer-flowing aftermarket exhaust, as a well as a 31 tooth front pulley. I like the result!

      Thanks for the input Qusetcap. Which rpm setting did you go with on the ignition?

        Like Questcap said, it's a pretty standard set mod, and it's a good idea to get yourself a Baron's jet kit while you're at it if you're still running the stock needle.

                From the Four Corners area, northwestern, New Mexico.

                I'd say your on the right track with the exhaust and air intake. You should feel a difference in performance.

                  To answer the subject question, yeah, it’s worth it.

                    Yes it is worth it. But it is just the beginning. You will need to keep you credit card handy!

                      Thanks for the info. I am planning on moving forward with this project and ordering parts next week. Will post updates as the project comes along. I can see a Dyna 3000 ignition in my near future as well.
