Does anyone know if there's a difference between the Kuryakyn Pro Series and the Pro-R hyperchargers, besides the obvious external look of the housing. I purchased a Pro-R through the dealer and they mistakenly ordered and installed the Pro series. When I explained they ordered the wrong part they changed the outer shell to a Pro-R (with my permission) and said the only real difference was the extra slit openning in the Pro-R's outer shell.
I was reading the description for both and it's hard to tell if there's a real difference, besides that little slit which I believe let's in more air.

I don't mind keeping it the way it is if the difference is just external, as I did get the look I wanted with the Pro-R outer shell.

If anyone is sure of the answer please respond as I need to pick up the bike tomorrow.

Thanks!

That's the only difference, just appearance....Don't expect a big performance gain with a Hyper, because they're pretty much just for looks...

This Pro Series Hypercharger was designed for massive air-hungry V-Twin mills that like lots of RPM's.
The Pro Series Hyper will work on smaller stock engines also, but will perform about the same as the standard hypercharger on these engines.

Well that explains why it doesn't add much performance...I have yet to see a "massive air hungry V-Twin mill that like lot's of RPM"...Big displacment V-twins don't rev that high....:rolleyes:

Inline fours will scream though... ;)

Frankly, I *do* like the way they look and I get that there is only so much you can do to make a v-twin breathe better, but is there anything that will give greater airflow in the VTX? Would it be better than the hypercharger or can we conclude that the hypercharger might leave some HP on the table? :hmm2:
