pipe is 1 sec faster per 25 sec laps. Looks to be no comparison. Guess I’ll be buying a soup can. Drat. I prefer pipes. Oh well….now some else searching will know, I guess.

I don’t understand, you like pipes and they are faster but you’re buying a can?

I like the can myself, less power = smooth ride, easy to mount and no hassle adjusting the chain. Engine tires clutch, everything last longer.
