Thanks for the compliments. I've since fitted Progressive 11" Short Shocks, a Ram-Flo air filter instead of the velocity stack (runs much better), SE Fork Brace and various other bits and bobs. I've got more parts waiting to be changed (but prefer to ride when I have spare time than fiddle!) but will add some up-to-date pics soon.

Thanks again and sorry for late response - not been on this page for a while! I've got three vids on You Tube of the bike with different exhausts fitted. This one should take you in the right direction... http://www.youtube.com/watch?v=9UC8hfMOw_s . I added a photo of the bike in 'Favourite pic of your Sporty' thread yesterday if you're still interested to see how it looks now. Thanks to everyone for looking and your comments :O)

Bike looks great! What brand of exhaust are you running? I've been looking for something to run on my '99 but everything I've seen is either straight drag pipes or it doesn't fit with forward controls.

Thanks! The exhausts are the original stock header pipes with the balance pipe removed and the mufflers are Screamin' Eagle Pro II's Baloney Cut.
