Default Before and now

Here I am, Cheesin' with my first bike the day I bought it at the stealership. Hate to admit it, but I actually got a good deal. Even though they tried to charge me for the battery they had to put in when they took it in.



And here it is after a year and a half. Not done yet.

I just put the LSR on and with the weather I haven't had a chance to take it on the road. Definitely louder than stock. Last summer I was running the stock setup with modified baffles, kind of a home made cycle shack baffle ala a cross between Gronk's mod and Mattbastard's (both of which can be found on this forum).

It is louder than that at idle and is a little louder wen revved up, but not much. It does have a totally different sound though, mainly from being a 2-1. There isn't much for a baffle in it. Just maybe a 6-8" baffle that is only maybe an 3/4" narrower than the pipe with scallops to help stop reversion. It does sound mean, a bit more like a built hotrod than a Harley. I'm very happy with it. I still have those baffles I made I'll try to get a pic up.

Looki' good. How's that front tire without the fender. I tried it once and knew the very first puddle why I didn't want to do it.

I, too, would like your assessment of the RB pipes when you get a chance to ride it.
