Poor performance with a cold SLP single pipe?

Have any of you guys experienced poor performance with your cold SLP single pipe? We have noticed a waver from 3/4 to full throttle on a cold pipe. We have a couple of fixes but would like to now what you have been experiencing.

I don't have an slp but the stock pipe does that some times. Loaded it down with more weight. Is that what you do?

Re: Poor performance with a cold SLP single pipe?

Went sledding with with a couple of guys this week that both have the new SLP pipe on their RMK 700's. All of us are ported with 144" tracks. One of them has shortened the pipe 1/4" and the other has done nothing at all. My heel clicker weights seem to work the best at getting the pipe hot faster. In fact I can do cold shots without much of a problem at all. The shorter pipe worked well, but he couldn't do cold shots. The other guy kept saying he was going to order his heel clicker weights all day long. I am anxious to see what happens with the shorter pipe and heel clicker weight combination.

This is almost a sickness - the need to drain every last ounce of performance from these sleds.

either coat the pipe or wrap it,it will run more consistant and heat alot quicker. the coating looks cool but you can control where the wrap goes.
