Keep reading post that that make it seem as though there is a huge lag that would upset the bike, then a huge surge in power. I can see how this would be bad but I do not experiance this. The main way i can tell i kicked into v-tech is a change in pitch and slightly more vibration. I do notice more power once into the v-tec range but the transistion power level is almost non existant. Just woundering as there seems to be a desparity between bikes...mine is an 05 btw and stock.
