I too finnally got the 900RR header done and LOVE IT! I was brave and went with a new set of delkevic headers, $190 I couldn't go wrong! I went back and forth and back and forth and then back again and decided to go with a two bros carbon fiber muffler. I had bought two mufflers so I had a couple options, I have the scorpion street extreme one also, but decided to use the 2 bros. I'm very happy with the end result. Sounds great, its not too loud but its a deep note, VERY NICE TUNE. I do not have the power commander yet, but that will be done this winter. Seems to run awesome with this set up, no popping or hesitation. Just power!
Delkevic headers- Very good customer service, I called on a thursday (evening) and they were sent out friday. Also provided a tracking number so that was also nice. The finished product was EXCELLENT! Nice welds, clean lines, and mounted right up! One thing I needed to do, which isnt a HUGE deal was cut off the mount tab underneath the bike, it didnt quite line up (as maryland mike knows
). So I cut if off and then the pipe fit like a glove. I will have that bracket re-welded on there soon. Also, at the end of the pipe, there diameter seemed to be a little bit larger than the two bros 900RR muffler I had, so I had to get the muffler end bored to fit, other than that, Great exhaust. I think another difference with the delkevics was the 2 inner pipes have a different bend than any other 900rr header I ve seen?? Also, when I got the header, the part number tag showed that the headers were 900RR 92-99. Well, as we all know that wasn't correct. I believe these are the late model header because I did cut off the flange for the slip on muffler.
So here she is!!!! -
I think it turned out great. Couple minor things I will have done soon, I am by no means a machinest so dont laugh at my metal skills. I did go and buy some metal to work with and did cut, bend and drill a mount tab. Im going to take the bike over to a buddy that builds custom bikes and see if he can make something a little cleaner. I just really wanted to get on the road and ride!!! Also, Im going to get a sleeve made for a cleaner look where the muffler slips on the header. Im just dont like the look right now.
Here is a sound clip, (I hope this works!!)
Also, to clean up the rear end (
) I went with a clear alternatives integrated tail light. Very nice, I really like the look. I made my own custom lic. plate bracket!! I'm really proud of that one! LOL
Here is a couple pictures from a ride last week. I did notice a increase in power, seemed to pull even harder when getting on it from 1st- 3rd. I really wish this bike had more top end, but love the bottom end. Another thing I noticed was the weight, WOW. Now I can really flick this thing around in the corners. Next in line for mods will be updated suspension revalved/resprung and steelbraided lines, I need those NOW! and motovation sliders, But I will have to wait for winter. Dang bikes!
Well thats about it, a BIG thanks to Maryland Mike, he answered every question I had! Very helpful. And Basspiece, googl3it, allanb, and anyone I forgot!
let me know what you guys think!!
