Ok so yesterday as some of you know I stoped by Hasbeenracer's shop to pick up his new Ti Satos and PCIII. While I was there I met another WT member, Really nice guy I have no Idea of his screen name
Any way with traffic I didnt get home untill 7:30 and after taking a few calls for work I finally got to start the install.
All I have to say it was really easy. Didnt use the directions, I did read them afterward but I dont think that counts. Click here for step by step directions with great pics by Nimo
I finished the install at about 11 and even though it was a little late to go blasting around my sleepy neighborhood I did start it. BTW if you didnt know Satos are almost as loud as good looking.
Thoughts of test ride:
But Dyno tells me the power gains were minimal if at all I really could not tell the difference. I did also notice a slight sputter on takeoff that did not go a way even after the bike was warm.
I did however experence something unexpected, stink never smelled it up untill I had the satos on.
I must also say these things sound like million bucks a bit louder than I wanted but I really like the sound.
And they are not to shabby looking either.
Because the performance was not what I had wanted and the stink was bothering me so I decided to install the PCIII.
I did end up taking off the sato on the right side to do the job but it was also easy.
Test ride again and now I noticed a difference. And not so much as power but in that the power is very smooth. It almost feels like a different bike it is so smooth.
ok enough of me yakin along I know you only opened this thread for the pictures.
FYI all except the first of these pick you can click to get the large version.
first the stock look (day I picked up the bike from the dealer)

Oh and thank you to Hasbeenracer again for a great deal Im very happy.
