Should I MOD ?
I've been looking and reading about all the mods you guys do. I was thinking of getting the stage I kit put in.
Would do you think it would cost me to have it done by the dealer? And what will I gain as far as more speed vs the cost?
Now will be a good time for me to do it since I will be in for my 10 hour service next week and I am leaving on a cruise on the 15th. So, I will be away for 2 weekends and not be riding. Might as well have it in the shop during that time. Provided derrick has the time to do it?

speed vs. costOriginally Posted by wavehummer
The kit is advertised to give 3-5 mph over stock. Simple math, 650/3-650/5
each mph on the top end will cost $130-$215 and the acceleration will be substancially improved when compared to stock.

I like the stage 1's. Simple, reliable mods that give lots in return. We have 2, I GPS'd the wife's the other day @ 69.1 mph and acceleration like an animal- didn't even fill the ride plate holes yet.
It's breaking that 70 mark that starts getting tricky (performance vs $ amount) on the RXT's.
DO IT! I also promise you will be impressed.

By the way, you get the kit from Jerry and Shibby and I will meet up with you in south Jersey and do a better than professional install for the price of lunch. That's right- he does what I tell him to do !
He doesn't eat much either, so that's another +

Didn't have the 14/17R in that RXT when we were down in DC either. That thing added 1- 1.5 mph I would say. I would definately recommend that prop for you when you need one, or keep an eye out for a used one.
You def. got a fast Limited though; because hers had OPAS, wedge, and power filter when we ran them and they were close...
