What I've noticed is it lets the motor rev quicker. Which can change the way the bike shifts, due to rev matching being a bit trickier sometimes. And sometimes the motor has more vibration, but mostly it allows the engine to pick up revs faster, which for a hp engine can be a good thing.

• The hidden harmony is found with joy, while the obvious brings indifference.
• The farther you enter into the Truth the deeper your conviction for truth must be.
• There is understanding of the world precisely to the degree that there is understanding of the Self.
