|red_johnny||I need to go over the bike to see if anything else fell off. Missing a bolt now. So I have to figure out the size to order the new one. First, going to make sure I am not missing anything else. I already have to order new mirrors and grips again. The crap grips I ordered before were a temp fix so I think I got the right ones this time. The LED on the right side mirror stopped working so I ordered new ones. Still have to find cheaper insurance.|

|red_johnny||Bringing up this old thread only to update. I was going to sell the bike (it was in the for sale section for awhile) and I decided to keep it for now. I have new grips on order. I am in Germany now so looking for cheaper insurance. I went from 90 bucks a year to 1200. Very significant jump. My wife wants me to sell but I cant go without a bike. Anyone in Germany knows how to get cheaper insurance?|

So upgrades are K&N filter, LV pipes, tinted windscreen (was red), PC III and soon to be on is a new red chain. All in all about 1K in parts. I still need to find a good PC place to do the dyno and tune. If a tune is going to cost me my left one then I will deal with what I have. I do have a video of the bike running with a mild rev but I dont feel it captures the sound very well. If anyone wants it posted I will post it.

|red_johnny||PC in and cant wait for the first ride. BTW if anyone is going to put a PC on a 800SS the little connectors with the metal clip were a bit tricky to get off. I ended up using a dental tool (I have some to clean my guns) which made the job super easy. PC mounting, I placed it on top of the battery using the battery strap to hold it down. I am going to play around with the map a bit to see if I can help it along any. Might just end up taking it to the local place and putting on the dyno.|

|red_johnny||Very cool sounding pipes!! I only started it up for about 10 mins then checked for leaks like the instructions said. But, I love the sound and they were really easy to install. I want to rivet the logos on instead of the stickers but I really dont know about drilling into the brand new pipes. Anyway, next weekend the PCIII goes on and I will be back in the saddle again.|

I think you'll be extremely happy with the LV pipes. Of the four 900SS bikes I've had, they all had different exhaust setups.
1. '96 - D&D exhaust
2. '00 - stock
3. '95 - cored stock exhaust
4. current '02 - termi
Of all of these, the cored one was the sound I liked the least. It was a sharp, metallic unpleasant sound that was just harsh to the ears. I'm not sure if a cored fuel injected supersport will sound like a cored carby, though. Regardless, the sound from Leo Vince pipes are really glorious. You can be sure that you will enjoy it.

|red_johnny||Just paid for a set of Leo Vance carbon pipes for 620 shipped. I wish I could have done it the way I wanted and saved 600 bones. Oh well. Guess it was meant to be.|

So the exhaust cans were a bust. Damn things would not come out of the sleeve. The caps were easy then I banged the living crap out of them on a wood block for about a hour (on just one) and not a inch. Yes I removed the bolts and brackets. So I am going to order a CHEAP aftermarket. I dont want to spend more than 600 so off to ebay I go in hopes of finding what I need. Here is the site I followed, I even tried a hammer and wood block.
