Rhinewest

I can highly reccomend the chip or the chip and cam gears upgrade from Rhinewest. If you have the mechanical capability check your valves and put the cam gear kit in at the same time.

Keep in mind that smart racers (those who win) consider total torque and hp as well as peak hp and torque. Look for power in the rpm range that you ride.
This is where real enjoyment begins.

When you find a vendor who can reasonably explain that they have a greater total torque and hp than the competitors you are probably in the right place.

one thing I have learned

whether it is in a car or on a bike... if you want to faster gotta speed money. I suggest buy a new bike! If you like the RS, then keep it and buy a rice rocket!

Answering your question rather than offering unsolicited advice, a Power Commander and Staintune exhaust netted me 122 RWHP and 81 ft. lbs. torque.

Is it worth the money? Your money, your decision.

Have you installed them? If so, have you ever done a roll-on from 60mpg with another K1200RS/GT? I'm really interested in this kit but would like "real life" feedback.

Talking

Thanks for the info I really love my 2003 model and the way it looks and the riding position I dont like the look for the 2006. I like to ride in the 4000 to6000 rpm to keep it in the peppy range also have hit the 150 mph many times. Got a great little road to ride called river road from montrose ia. to nauvoo il. real good ups and downs with allot of cornering!

That 85 is rated at the flywheel. The measured 81 is at the real wheel. San Jose BMW shows a stock KRS measuring 74.9 at the rear wheel.
