Its a smartphone app.
you can use it to see where your friends are.
I was thinking it might be good to do random checkins when out riding too. Instead of spot, it would at least give friends and family a starting point to locate your carcass if you didn't come home.

IT doesn't appear to be open so only your friends list can use it to find you.

Nice tractor! I bought a L2800 hst about 3 years ago, I've worked the heck out of it and not had a problem! You're gonna love that one.

Edit: did you get the rear tires liquid filled? It made a world of difference in how mine handled.

I dont recall how much that midpipe was but it was pricey, may as well just buy a new slip on.
The GSXR/Hayabusa cans that work on the DR are stamped 24FO, 35FO and 40FO, sound much better, flow much freer, and cut approx 13# off of the weight of stock exhaust, and unlike aftermarket cans, never have to be repacked. Kientech Engineering makes a mid pipe that bolts up in minutes. I too was concerned with the cost of the mid pipe, so I went to a local exhaust shop to get an estimate; would have involved getting my bike over there, spending time while they fit me in and fabbed, and still would have cost about the same; it was a lot easier to slap it on my self, and couldn't be happier. The bike in the foreground is mine with the Hayabusa can, the other is my son's with the Gsxr 1000...

Tell Jesse that Bret sent you; maybe he won't hang up on ya... He and Janet are in their 70's, and are wizards when it comes to modding DRs, incredibly nice people and very open with information. Which can do you have? The main difference is the weight; the 40, 35 and 24 are 4.5, 5.5, and 6.0# respectively, with the 24 being slightly longer, but jesse makes the mid pipe shorter to snug it up, so the results are the same.
