Thanks for all the advice. I have it all fixed up and everything minus the gasket to the Scorpion pipe. It is leaking exhaust all around it, but at least the header isn't leaking at the cylinder head anymore. It is not nearly as loud as the bafflectomized stockers, and it has a wayyy better tone now. It does feel like there is more back pressure though, comparitively to the virgin stock exhaust (without the bafflectomy). The power band seems to start somewhere above 6k instead of the 4700. Not as torquey, but when I ream it out in first the front tire gets light at around 7500-8k, and I have the 17t front and 43t rear. It used to come up earlier. When I do my wheelies it takes a little more, but when the RPM's are higher it feels like it has a little more power, so the gas is touchy, and almost wants to flip me over if I'm not careful. Gonna take some getting used to. Hopefully the trade off for torque gives a little more hp.
When I get the gasket in the mail later this week or next I'm hoping to feel a little more power out of it. Will it hurt to ride it? Felt fine on my test rides. Is it normal to smell a little bit of a burning from the new aftermarket pipes? My guess is that it's just the packing getting broken in. After time I know it should get a little louder. I looked inside the can and I saw a few fibers sticking out a little. I'm assuming that's normal though.
Got a few more things to do to her, and a LOT of cleaning. Then the pictures will come!
