    Chef can probably help you, but I have a couple of questions.
    1. What was the incentive for the Campbell x-pipe? All the reviews I have seen of it were considerably less than positive.
    2. Who is "Monty"?
    3. What is your incentive for pods? Yes, most bikes will make a little more power, along with a little more noise, once you finally get them dialed in, but the 850 has about the lowest state of tune of any GS, I don't know how much that might improve with pods.

    OK, I just did some searching and found that "Monty" is Monty Campbell, inventor of the x-pipe. I find it interesting that he added jets 11 sizes larger, when he claims that his pipe requires NO re-jetting. I think that pretty much says enough for me about the rest of his company.

    Thanks Steve, the reason he went 11 sizes bigger on the jets is because of the pods. I can do my best to go back to the OEM airbox but im having a hard time getting it to stay connected to the carbs , I even bought new rubber boots for the air-box still having trouble but I could spend more time on it if Chef could maybe
    get me back to normal.

    p.s. The X-pipe I have is a decent product. I'm more frustrtated with myself for going in over my head with no support in Idaho.

    A big incentive for me is looks.

    Then when I became an 11EZ owner, I discovered how difficult the air box made battery access.

    Hi Mr Chef, or Bill. Iím new to the site and Iím really interested in a quote for some carb rebuilding. I have an 80 GS 1000 GL that Iím restoring. The carbs appear to be stock and untouched, but i assume clogged. I plan to run K&N pod filters and a V&H 4 into 1 pipe. So Iím going to need richer jetting. I can send you my telephone number if youíd like. Let me know the best way to get in touch. Best regards. GS1Tom
