    Power Valve RPM Setting w/ Triples?

    I have a GP1200R w/ triples and an Advent T3 CDI. It also has Riva heads w/ 175 lbs compression. I will be installing a FP water box as well as ported cylinders and cases.The Advent allows you to control what RPMs the powervalves open at. It is set now to open at 5600. I was just wondering if there was a need or any advantages to delaying them? At allows you to delay them up to 6100 RPMs. Thanks for the help.

    R&D recommends 6100

    I am guessing because that is the best place to open the valves to maximize hp through the powerband

    Thanks Phillip. another question real quick. To run the FP water box I know you have to install stinger inserts. If I am not mistaken they sell two different sizes. Which one should I use?

    smaller diameter = more back pressure

    more back pressure gives you the potential for more HP, but with more back pressure you run a higher risk of detonation

    so you have to balance off, compression, timing, back pressure with the octane of fuel you are using

    I have no idea what the ideal set-up would be, you might try calling these guys, they would be able to help http://www.techoneracing.com/about-us.php they might also be a good source parts
