Just wanted to comment on this. This is true. I ended up disconnecting the fuel rail (throttle body remained in place) and was able to get it out.


267hp is a really good result.

To be clear: Brock's Performance does not now and has never offered a Stage 2 SC (I'm assuming that means Supercharger) kit. We have had no part of any development or engineering of these gears or kits for any person or company.

If anyone wants to know where we stand on their use, they simply need to head to our web site, go to our FAQ's and type in supercharger gears.

We issued a statement many weeks ago.

Thanks Brock. I guess I should clarify my post. When I said I'm not 'running Brocks' I was referring to the Guhl Flash package you offer.

For those may be interested, I just got back from a test ride.

I did a little bit of backroads and some highway cruising with the occasional full throttle blast.

Boost temps stayed around 120-140 when I was riding twisties.

Boost temps jumped to 174 when I was on the highway droning along at 80mph

I don't know what Boost temps were when I held it wide open but it was very quick so I don't think it jumped to high.

Temps by me are just under 70* F


The bike is running leaner, I can feel it and there seems to be a flat spot in the eco-mode section of the powerband. The bike feels like it's always in the Boost now and it seems that the Supercharger is always chirping with extended chirps on deceleration.

The bike is noticeably louder, which I suspect is a byproduct of the velocity stacks.

Brocks' Clutch Springs work GREAT! The clutch is a tad heavier but it feels very positive and personally I prefer it over stock as I can feel the engagement and disengagement of the clutch much better.

The motor didn't seem stressed in any way at all. However, the real test is in the heart of summer when the temps and humidity are sky high.

I do so much riding at top end that everything over 120mph feels the same to me so I can't say the bike felt any faster. What I can say is that I definitely need dyno work to smooth out the powerband again.

I went to the dyno today. I'll be posting the vid and #s on my youtube channel later on tonight.

In the meantime, I have to point out something very important. When you are torqueing down the Supercharger bolts to hold the sprockets in place, make sure it's really secure. I've had the lower sprocket bolt back out on me twice so far. The 1st time I used Blue Loctite and it still didn't hold. Today after my dyno runs it vibrated loose again. I think I'm going to use Red Loctite this time around when I pull the clutch cover off this week.

Videos have posted.

My numbers jumped from 217hp SAE to 251hp SAE with a near stock 13,500rpm rev limit.

A gain of 34 horsepower with stock ignition timing on the FTECU Flash.

Great numbers, and it seems that you are still running with the cat. For the bolts, the top one is easy to torque once everything is fixed, just need to put the bike in gear. The bottom one is trickier because there's no acces with the clutch fitted. I used a heavy duty green loctite and torqued the bolt with a 1/4" mini impact wrench, and so far it didn't come loose. Hope this helps.

I'm tempted to use red loctite.

I torqued it to 16 ftlbs which is 1 ftlb more than spec and I used blue loctite.

I rode it 50 miles with no problems and then did the dyno runs. When the runs were finished I could hear the bolt rubbing on the clutch so I know it came loose again.
