gettin rid of the stock head pipes defiantly opened it up a bit, I got a chance to ride it a few times with the equal length pipes currently installed in the pictures with some older carbon cans installed. Im really looking forward to getting a new(er) shock on it too!! Im going to try out the 14/39 and if its to steep Ill put a 15 on the front.. mid ohio only has one really fast straight, and i can stand going a bit slower down the back straight to gain some power everywhere else.
Joe, that is a very nice bike! I hope mine looks half as nice as that when its done! next winter ill be tearing it down and powedercoating the frame and repainting the engine. Im going to have a friend throw a decent coat of paint on my fairings this spring.
The forks I had revalved and resprung for my weight last month, cant wait to get this bike done!!!!
