I had that bike in 03 and it was a great bike. Really comfy, great handling and awesome acceleration for a 6. Put a Muzzy slip-on, they sound sweet!

^ I dont think I'll be putting an exhaust on it yet because I like her note right now. I just hate seeing that big fat exhaust and that just might make me want to buy a smaller one.

Ill go to Motorcycles Unlimited on Friday. Too hectic today or tomorrow.

I went to CG today and guess who was there too ILow was there with his awesome R1. Looks 3485723402x better in person. The paint on it might just look better than factory.

Nice, we should ride sometime.


I know my first mod already. Can someone photochop the lip in the intake lip to yellow matching the body? I think having a gray/silver or whatever color that is is just dumb. Or maybe black would work since the bike has black accents too.

It will take some getting used to. Like I said, it's way heavier on the handlebars. Its like learning to ride a bike again.

As far as throttle control, I dont think Ill see WOT anytime soon.

Great looking bike, congrats. Were you gonna be doing any more riding that day (friday) or are you just going to Motorcycles Unlimited? Been wanting to head up north to ride, will finally have some time on friday...

Im going to look into those steering dampeners/stabilizers in a bit. School work > me.

I wonder if it would be worth it to chop the instead of just replacing it. I saw what cali did to his bike an baditalians...

I was just going to Motorcycles Unlimited on friday and maybe ride some Crab. Im not familiar with the northside to ride there plus I have yet to tame the beast.

R u aware how much work it takes to chop a stock muffler?


Fair warning ahead of time. Dont forget to compensate or rejet afterwards if you're dropping backpressure.

I think yellow calls too much attention to the lip. Black is the way to go, had actually noticed that before you brought it up.

Cali photo and canister chop shop, how may I help you?
