What are some ways to improve the acceleration on my '07 GL1800?

Thanks

Point it downhill?

Lose some weight?

Eat a hearty breakfast of scrambled eggs and green chili burros - chase it with a warm beer?

Any internal combustion engine is just an air pump (of sorts). More air in (aftermarket intake), more air out (aftermarket exhaust), more fuel (computer map) should = more acceleration. Theoretically speaking of course! :D

1. lose weight from your body
2. lose weight from the wing
3. add a turbocharger and intercooler
4. reprogram the main ECU
5. add Jato's

If your for real- :shock: buy a sportsbike. The Wings got plenty of power. :lol:

Or you might try turning your right wrist. :)

OH Yeah, baby!
JATO's, like the ones in the urban myth story
about the guy who put em on a 63 chevy.
They found the car at the base of a vertical cliff wall
and they found the spot he hit about 150 feet up the wall. :lol:
Not a true story but is sure tells good.
Jet Assisted Take Off rockets for getting the heavies
off the short runways.
Wander how high the Wing would get before they burned out? :lol: :lol: :lol:

:) Sure, I'm serious. There seems to be lots of thing guys do to our crusiers to beef them up, but not much to enhance the engine performance on the Wings to increase acceleration. I was just asking out of curiousity.

Has anybody installed these on their Wings? If so, Did it make a difference in acceleration?

Thanks Guys for all the feedback.

Unfortunately there seems to have been near zero development of any kind of true performance enhancing aftermarket or add on pieces for a Goldwing. :cry: My guess is: Probably due to low demand (from a mostly older group of riders that aren't into more brute performance)and or because of it's considered just a Big Tourer. One alternative: Get a second bike, a sportbike. Personally, I'm shopp'in.
