    Ribbon Delete comparison

    Me and my son both bought a 2014 VX Deluxe the manufacture dates are a month apart , we removed the restrictor in mine and left his stock . Im still running the stock air filter and in a side by side comparison they run exactly the same speed wide open, but if he takes off first i can catch him before he hits top speed. If i take off first he will be 15 to 20 feet behind me but going just as fast, his is completely stock and mine only has the ribbon removed other than that its stock. You can feel the difference in acceleration and there is no hesitation, before if i turned super sharp and gunned it there was a hesitation and slight bog , now there is none. Other than that there is no difference, except in low mode just cruising i get slightly better gas mileage.

    Exactly what has been proven before. Glad you are seeing the same results.

    Be interesting to see if he put a performance filter/intake kit on his with restrictor in and you kept yours with stock filter and no restrictor what the outcome would be....

    Maybe throw it on his when you get it just to see the outcome...Be interesting to see if he would stay even with you, pull ahead slightly or be 20ft behind like the original test....

    I agree. You have the optimum setup to prove/disprove add ons...unlike us (other than gps for top speed) we can only do acceleration by seat of the pants...Interested in your results

    Could always do some tests with the air filter removed.
    I've run my VX without an air filter for close to 2 years due to the original
    owner putting too much oil in it and clogging/wetting the air filter.
