Yep, we did it. Sawing, chiseling, cutting, grinding, welding, ceramic coating and cooking in the big oven! DONE! A bit of work ? -yes. Worth it ? -yes! My bike has a Trident half system which needed some grinding and cleaning inside on the Oxy sensor boss. That was done as well. Now we have a more rorty, deeper tone coming out through the carbon cans plus the bike feels like it has picked up some HP all across the RPM range. It literally jumps on throttle twisting, is very crisp and I like it! We also put the Tuneboy tune for this set up in it from Wayne @ Tuneboy-wow! Good stuff. More tuning to come. I have the BMC filter and Khulka's SAI block off plates (nice stuff also) and am going to try some other simple mods soon. This is some pretty simple stuff that really livens up this bike. Thanks to Devious for all his help and guidance.
Want to get it on the dyno very soon. These bikes come from the factory mass market detuned and have some real good potential with fairly easy mods.
