Off road I can understand. On road you don't feel the need for a little more grin factor?
IDK, it's fast enough? It's the "fun to ride a slow bike fast" thing? Maybe I'm just too fucking old!

It's the legal way to feel younger.

I don't quite understand. Sealing with what? I'm pretty sure that there's no leaking on them.
Any pic?

No pics unfortunately. But as I stated, I didn't know mine were leaking either, until I pulled the headers to lube the shock linkage on the frame. The gaskets fell out of the head and there were carbon traces that suggested minor leakage. So on reassembly, I used some sensor safe sealant. I noticed it was ever so slightly quieter, but then I also realised that the surging had mostly disappeared and I have no other explanation.

So if you remove your headers and have a look, then reinstall with some sealant, maybe.......

A bit like dating a woman wearing a chastity belt. The reflash is the key...

Or more like dating a woman who won't give h*ad... You can still have a lot of f*cking fun, but you know it'd be really terrific without the "restrictions"...

Might be wasting your time on this one. He could be one of those Raven Riders you've heard about.
