Well for the sound it's really deep wife said it sounds like a stereo system in a car bc it has the low bassy sound. For the performance I have the intakes and a pc3 and it runs great when I rode last night it had a noticeable power gain it seemed to have more pep

Looks really good, would like to hear it sometime.:bigthumbsup:

As for improvement of power, it seems just getting rid of the catalytic converter ans SET valve is going to give you an increase. Back in 06, before any after-market pipes became available, there were a few who removed the SET and the converter from the stock pipes and saw an increase in performance. You can also just safety wire the SET valve in the full open position, pull the #7 wire from the ecu and get a boost. I've heard of that being done as well.

Its also nice to shed a bunch of weight by switching pipes, though it will be hard to notice since that weight is so low. But any weight loss is a good thing, IMHO.

That turned out nice. It looks a lot better being shortened too, the other had too many steps in it.

Great job! :bigthumbsup::bigthumbsup:

Those painted wheels make it look like it's riding on white-walls. Very interesting. So two guys with the same bike, same color, and same unique painted wheels? Suspicious. I gotta ask.... which came first - the chicken or the egg?
