    I agree with you. Trust me, I used to race motorcycles (road course racing), and going from a 600cc to a Liter bike at a 1000cc or more, now that is serious step up. Let me run this one for a while first, then I may think about monkeying with supping the saw up with bananas....

    Mahahahahahahahahaha, that's really funny, you said "need"

    Stick around, that'll change :laughing:

    There was a dyno test on a 461xb (xtra bananas) built by Randy, can't remember the power figure but it was a bit special.

    There are other highly skilled porters on this site, never ran any of their saws but have owned a few of Randy's, they range from "this thing is bloody awesome" to "holy ****"

    Work on your chains before you send it to get ported , its the best saw mod there is , no increase in power makes up for a shitty chain.

    Oh, I wanted to ask about the air filter. See pictures. I took the saw apart and cleaned it all up, then I opened the air box and saw the filter all clogged up. Should it be this packed with stuff after only running it on Noodling for a few hours?

    They block up but the only ones I've seen that let anything past them weren't fitted properly. Just knock them out every tank

    Those pleated filters breath very well, so even partially plugged, they still work. I don't clean em every tank, but every few is a good idea.

    The top usually gets the most chips.

    That's fine. More problematic would be what gets past into the throat of the saw.
    Which is where the hd2 shines

    The 461 filter isn't patterned after the HD2?

    I run a max flow in all the stihls I have. Mostly without the cover if there's no chance of rain.
