    Pro-Tec Turbo tube?

    I haven`t really heard anything about this part. In the search function there are very little threads about it. I`ve seen it quite often in magazines, and it`s advertised for the 1300R...

    what`s the skinny on this?
    what is this exhaust mods target? bottom end, mid range, top end?
    anyone have experience with it and fact? ...Thanks...

    I had one for a little bit and did some testing with it... Speed loss up top at that point on my near stock gpr was almost 2 mph. The bottom end did seem a little more crisp and it sounded pretty cool. There was a major difference in the amount of room in the hull and if I remember correctly it was something like a 9lb difference from the TT to the stock stinger. If your looking for a gain from it speed wise you wont get it. There also something like $600 new however you can pick them up used for some where around $200.

    good info thanks...

    so in general this is a bottom end gain, minimal but...

    the loss of upper R`s could be contributed from the large diameter tubing used?
    2mph is quite a few RPM...

    He probably sold it to me!

    I added it to my 1390 along with a 1200 waterbox and some 43mm TBs, so I can't comment on the Turbo Tube alone, but the bottom end is incredible - I can finally beat my race-prepped STXR out of the hole.

    I haven't lost any RPMs up top, but I have yet to GPS it and see if there were any gains or losses.
