Hi Gordy

I'm assuming I kinda usurped your thread with this one, not my intention. I searched for a Beta thread but the search engine didn't lead me to it so I started this one.

Has anyone ever done db testing on the bikes without the noise suppressor? Mine fell out and I never replaced it. I don't find the bike loud but have never had it tested.

I have the same set up. You might need to remove the tank to find a little slack in the throttle cable run. My cables are fine with a 2.75 inch HDB riser and the Flexx bars.

Hmmm, I run about 12 in the back and more air doesn't help traction so that's not a great option. Two rim locks is better but I'm thinking tubliss still.
