I installed the H.D. Carby slide today.
I can tell anyone that wants to know that the Harley slide is the same part, as the Kawasaki one. The only difference being the Harley slide does not have holes in the side, whereas the Kawasaki one does.
There is a definate, but moderate improvement in acceleration at 3500 - 4500 rpm. I took the bike out and attained 140kph before I had to slow down for a turn. I don't think the bike had a lot more in it. I did not drill out the hole in the slide. I would have had a greater improvement in acceleration if did, reportedly. To reiterate, and sum up, there is a definate, but moderate, perhaps moderate to fair improvement in performance. I think it was worth the $74 i spent on the part.
