    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?

    $690 + shipping - discount if you go to Jerry's store=about 650
    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 +

    Yeah, just a little at a time- and I can usually hang on a little better than her so usually its me who comes out ahead, especially when we hit a little bit of chop or wake, she most of the time loses some ground to me.

    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...
