In the last few months I've done a few things:
- Ordered and installed the front under plastics
- Installed Power Commander 5
- Had a low mount stainless steel slash cut megaphone exhaust fabricated up by ToxicFab

Scrubbed in the new tires and enjoying the bike more and more. I was tired with the quiet stock exhaust and was unimpressed with most of the low mount exhaust availability so decided to have a custom low mount created. Colin at ToxicFab did a tremendous job fabricating the first of it's kind exhaust for the R1.

Yes it is loud, especially when you rev it out. Sounds like a V8 Nascar, pretty impressive coming from a sport bike! Some cruisers are definitely louder, and the sound to others on the highway at cruising speeds is not intrusive. At 5000 RPM and above it is pure music! The first sound clip the revving blew out my mic, so hopefully some better clips coming soon. Here is the link to the first video:

Cleaned up the tail section nicely, the slash cut megaphone definitely fits the R1's sharp features

The slash follows the bike's lines

Beautiful welding work by ToxicFab

I am super happy with the project so far!

Yes, I am running stock headers, Power Commander 5, and no O2. Sent you a PM. Colin at ToxicFab does top notch work and is located in the Houston area. Definitely check out his work if you are interested in picking up a pipe.

I used a GoPro HD 2 for the time lapse video. For the exhaust vid I used a Canon 5D MKII with an external shotgun mic and 12ft video crane. It's a fun setup, hope to get better audio soon and do another video.

Gunk brand engine degreaser. The gel on bad stuff and the foam for the rest, worked wonders!
