My Bike

So after lurking around for God only knows how long with just a few posts I figured I should go ahead and share some pics of my bike and what better time than after a good cleaning. Mods are as follows:

Ixil header w/ titanium heat wrap
Danmoto slip on with custom connect pipe
PCV
43 tooth rear sprocket
Shorty adjustable levers
Bar end mirrors

Next round will be front and rear suspension, then install and cam....

Hopefully the link works. First time using imgur.

They're the cheap $20 mirrors on Amazon. I left the bar end weights in, made my own spacers and screwed the mirrors in using the stock screw. Work perfect up until about 80 mph where they start to move from the wind. Not a big deal for me since I rarely ride the highway but thought I'd let you know in case you go that route.

Decided to add a new saddle to make longer trips more comfortable. Got the Corbin front. It made a huge difference in comfort and I no longer find myself moving around under acceleration and deceleration. I feel more solidly planted. So far I've put about 4 hrs on it since install and do not get the sore tail bone and stiffness I used to get in my lower back. Sucks getting old!

Although they are lacking in the customer service side, (emailed them regarding a questions 4 weeks ago and still have not gotten a response), the product quality is top notch. Will update as I spend more time on it. Hope all had a Merry Christmas and enjoyed the holidays.

Will upload pics from my computer later. Can't from phone right now.

nice clean bike.
just wondering what's your weight like, if you don't mind sharing.
trying to justify the 43T sprocket change. I'm 67kg, with pillion and luggage still looking for 7th gear.
