ooooooooohhh BILLY!!!

Full exhaust, Power commander or Juicebox and a high flow airfilter and tune should hopefullly see 10hp....

Well thats what im doing/expecting, then it will be the perfect mix of power/weight and fuel economy. The perfect sports commuter :)

Keep us updated...

I would really like to know the cost of a full exhaust, PC, and filter and what the dollar per HP is looking like.

I know with my 2003 ZX7R I gained about 10 HP (on a 109 HP bike)... On my S1000RR with a Taylormade Exhaust I will gain 18 HP...

Either way its about $100 per HP with a SS... I just wonder if its worth it on a 300... 10 HP is a lot on a 380lbs bike... but the cost would be 1/5th the price of the bike, no?

Just keep in mind that your fuel economy, while still better than, say, a car, will take a serious hit over stock with those sorts of mods.

I don't think I'm going to concentrate that much on trying to get more power out of a 300cc. An exhaust and power commander just to free up some flow and that's all I'm going to do. This bike was never meant to be super powerful anyways.

Remember that losing weight has the same effect as gaining power, without the cost of lower fuel mileige. Getting a lighter battery, lighter gear or just simply working out makes a huge difference on the 300

Planning on keeping it under 1000 bux for filter/exhaust/PC
Should see 10hp, 100bux per HP on a 170kg is good enough for me.
That's less than 1/7 of the price of the bike in Aus.

I think it's worth it but I catch the power bug easy :)

Yes I know fuel economy will go down obviously with a richer tune but mehhh
It's cheap to run anyways!

It will still generate the same power and torque with a lighter load, but acceleration and top speed will be improved :)

FYI, with a totally stock bike, you can lift the tire in first (did it this morning on the way to work):D

It is nice to see that a lot of guys have monster bikes and still enjoy a smallbike like the 300,
(still waiting on the green one)

The 300 is just a fun bike. With the 600s I used to ride, you had to be so controlled with everything or you would be doing hyper-legal speeds. With the 300, you have more than enough power to have fun, but not so much that if you sneeze you're doing 100+ mph.
