my take on exhaust

i always wanted to do a gp exhaust on this bike. after looking at several different pipes from different bikes i couldnt find anything original at all. after stumbling upon summit racing i saw their page of supertrapp mufflers and thought what the hell. proven mufflers for a great price and jumped on it and got this:

http://store.summitracing.com/partde...5&autoview=sku

when my brother in law and i took off the headers to see what we needed to do to achieve this, we saw a very easy oppurtunity to make it happen. where the pipe turns back up there is a weld at an angle. we cut at that point turned it out, tacked it back on, and voila! we have our perfect angle!

i know you dont care and want to see this pics so here it goes

before




after




sorry for not havin more pics, if you want more of the exhaust mod, lemme know and i will post them up for everyone to see

You HAVE been a busy little bee since we last rode together haven't you? Looks and sounds good! What about your after-market gauges, still no luck?

That is cool, do you get any weird popping or backfires on deceleration?
