Increased HP & Fuel Economy For Honda Gold Wing Motorcycle

January 31, 2008 - 01:42 PM
I have been riding since 1956 and after purchasing my 2007 Honda GL1800 Gold Wing motorcycle I soon realized that restrictive stock exhaust was preventing my powerful engine to perform to it's full potential. Sure right out of the crate it runs well, but after lots of research Wingstuffs Torqmaster power mufflers with Torq Loopz was the way to go. After installation the increase in power and torque at low rpms was nothing short of amazing. My engine ran smoother and fuel mileage increased by an extra 2.5 per gallon..
