Thanks. To be honest im not to technically sound on motorcycles yet. My M109 has that stupid oil drip on the left side that already has ruined 2 good work pants. It has a custom exhaust on it. It's 2 7" pipes going into one huge single pipe. Would like to get a heat shield. I mostly drive it to Tampa from Pinellas al lweek then go on trips for what would you guys recommend. And is 2nd gear a really that bad?

Oil puke is just from over filling it on the oil change. There is a drain on the bottom of the stock air intakes. You will ultimately need to remove the air intakes and clean the oil out of them. Might need to replace the air filters as well if they have soaked up oil. I would just do an oil change on it, making sure to only put the proper amount back in.

As far as heat shields go, post up a pic of what you have. We can probably help you identify which exhaust you have so you know what to look for. Or you could just pick out a new exhaust. Make your 9 "yours"!

Welcome to the club! Its always great seeing Florida people logging in or joining.

I understand the hesitation of wanting to work on the 109 but get you a copy of the shop manual and dive in...... I like working on my own stuff, unless it involves internal engine/transmission junk or has a kick arse warranty...
