Does the Black Dog work with a Remus header? I believe on the Black Dog site it says it does not but I think someone here on the board said it would.

Thanks!

Don't wait - get rid of the stock air non-cleaner asap. The key to break in is to stay below the 6500 RPM for 600 or 700 miles while varying the load and RPM.

Heat Shields

They look like they are in the wrong place - too far aft and too far down. Wings design look much better and is in a better place.

I may try these if they are $45 or under!
