First time posting. I have learned a ton from reading this forum.
I am located in the SF Bay Area. I've only seen a few CBR500r bikes on the road in this area. If anyone is local to me let me know.
Thought I would share some pics of my bike.
Few mods here and there. I will put together a list in the next day or so.

Comments, good or bad are welcome. :smile:

Thanks

That's more than a few mods! Looks clean. I'd like a closer photo of the exhaust if you wouldn't mind. I'd love a sound clip too. The one thing I'll say is, the K&N filter is not good for the motor. Either get rid of it or change your oil twice as often. If you're intent on keeping it, you really ought to put a power commander on it. You've got the potential to gain a pony or two now that you have the higher flow intake and exhaust.

Thanks for the feedback.

Are you saying the K&N filter isn't good for the engine because it will run a bit leaner or are there other reasons?
I've thought about a power commander but it would also require putting it on the dyno and getting it tuned and I have not looked into getting that done in my area. Is that something you have done before? What is the total price you paid for everything if you don't mind sharing?

I will get some close up pics of the ixil exhaust today. I actually have to replace the gasket today because after removing the old exhaust and installing the ixil, the existing gasket was not sealing properly.

Definitely get the bike dyno'd. The bike's ECI is tuned for exhaust regulations. With or without the filter, you'll get smoother throttle response. With the filter, you're definitely out of tune without a re-tune. So all of this means, get the PC5 :)
