When rebuilding my 1100 carbs I couldn't help but notice the bronze mesh covering the intakes on each side of the intake plenum.
Apparently they're backfire suppressors for bikes in California running lean to meet CA's pollution requirements.

Hm. Turns out that screen-door type mesh reduces airflow by abt 30%
So - removed the mesh and off I went.
As the tach swung through 5k to redline I got a lovely push on my backside and could feel my lower legs being pushed back against the pegs.
Became a bit of a weapon on twisty roads.
