regret DanMoto exhaust...

I still love the look better than any other can for my bike, sounded great... but apparently the welds are simply "sealant" and not meant to hold it together. what-so-ever. After 1 month

And I wish I could find slipons listed by pipe size... cause i have a good midpipe that'll work with any short straight can

I regret re-gearing my f4i. I mainly use it to commute and long trips so it was pointless.

Oh yeah, and getting an aluminum sprocket, another pointless act.

They dont last for compared to steel. Aluminum ones look cool but I am getting steel next time.

YUP.

All you do is throw off the speedo, wear sprockets faster and reduce mileage.

Yeah... I think I'll stick with my clear screen. I don't tuck that low often... but i kinda like being able to see through it.

Not far from my work, I'll shoot them an e-mail or swing by. Thanks.
I hadn't even looked for a place to weld Ti... but figured SOMEONE should be able to in Houston. I just need to get the muffler piece off of the mid-pipe now... it's on there TIGHT, and nothing to get leverage.

Apparently due to the heat.

I have the same regret.

Not really. It's 2in, and my friend says his sv is like 2 1/4. Besides, It's in my backpack today so I can drop it at the shop that texlurch suggested. They said no problem and gave me a ballpark quote by email within a couple hours. And.... the 650r is already short, just under 12in.


After that I'm gonna order levers, carbon, and HIDs

Especially since they are so accurate from the factory.. Speed-o-Healer is an easy fix... plus you get the cool top speed recall function to scare your wife....

There are occasions when a sprocket change is a good thing.. 95 mph in first is a little tall for tight back roads.

No regrets! Every modification I have made has and will continue to serve it's purpose - fun, economical commuting I did make 1 mistake though...on my 1st chain repalcement, I didn't replace the front/rear sprockets and the chain probably lasted 2/3 what it should have. I am now on a good quality gold chain (forget if its DID or RKGold?) with new front and rear sprockets and after 8k mi, the chain has no stretches...very nice and smooth Another regret is not paying the extra $400 for a valve adjustment when I was getting spark plugs/air filter replaced...combined labor would have reduced the total cost.

when I was 18, my "scientific mind" didn't have any scientific backing...RAM AIR was brand new to bikes, and I wanted it bad on mine.

with the bike not even a month old, my friend "scientifically" worked out how a funnel, and some tubing hidden under the gas tank would be free RAM air...well at the cost of destroying an air box.


lol. lets just say that was an underpowered lesson learned. to fix the issue, I got the full system, jet kit, and filter pods.. didn't regret that!
