I am nervous about disputing the claims of such a
q-lister, but I have to disagree here.  The K24 is capable of putting
plenty of air for a 2.0 bar MC-1.  The K-26 would be putting out
cooler air and therefore more power, but I think the increased
of the K-24 is definetly worth a small top-end sacrifice.
To reiterate- I don't believe that the K24 is "undersized" for an MC
you have done some serious work (say 240-250hp and up).
