Finally I got it and put it on the bike - took all day but got it sorted and I really like the way it looks. It sounds great. The Protune is next (I have it but I have no idea how to make it work). I put a temporary carbon heel guard on as they forgot to ship the correct one. I'll try to get better quality pictures when I can get the bike outside (snowing here)

Looks good. Very similiar to an exhaust setup a guy from California was making in limited production under the name Chain Reaction. He was making them for Triumph Speed Triples. Do you know if this is the same guy?

I just went to their website - definately the same cans. The pipes are necessarily different.

Very nice man!

I like the look of your bar goodies too, I see you have new reservoirs and are those bar end mirrors and signals I see?

I am considering the bar end signals and maybe mirrors this winter... got a few things to do on it while it is crappy out.

How did you route the wiring for the signals? I was thinking through the bar but not sure about drilling any holes near the middle?

Hope you get a nice chinook soon and get out for a blast!

Chinook today! will be out testing it. The bar ends are Oberon signals. I drilled holes between the brake levers and the switch pod on each bar end. It's not that difficult and works really well. I put LED signals in the rear tail vents so I could get rid of the bulky original signals. I mounted the reservoirs behind the bars so I could use the flipped brake clamps as the mounts - this way there are no open holes left over - just seemed cleaner

The Albertan leos let you mod your licence plate like that??? Looks great! Would your plate have fit without trimming?

I have been stopped by the cops in 2 Canadian provinces (Alberta and BC - got a speeding ticket in BC but no plate comment) and 2 American states and never even been asked about it - I guess it's because all the relevant info is still there. I modified the Motowheels pipe mounts and it would not fit without being cut (I actually cut it 3 years ago)

cool... ride first then maybe sit and watch the Grey cup.... sounds like a nice day! I will get those signals done like you did, I am not too keen on drilling anywhere there may be a loading issue so, where you did seems to be right for me as well.

I had a hard time drilling through the bars - they can't be stanbdard aluminum. In other words, I wouldn't worry about drilling a 1/4" hole and screwing the bar integrity

I flipped the brake clamps too when I went with my CRG LS's. Does look cleaner without the open holes exposed.

Same guy. His name is Bob. He lives in Reno now. Nice guy.
