"i assume you strap dry bags inline with the bike as strap holes only on the sides? "

Thanks.
I made it so the Wolf Tail bag bungees would go through the front slots and hook on the bike and the rear uses the bungees with the hooks on so they can go under and hook in the side notches. Mostly it was TLAR(that looks about right)
and you can see the extra holes when I didn't figure out that the Tigers mounting holes weren't symmetrical

I rode with the screen on for about 10 miles so I can't say I have much to say about it. It was about 175 after tax. Got it from engle motors (where I got my bike). No I havnt tried any other screens.

Can you tell me the width of that screen measures at the rear just above the flair out... Thanks.

I've got the Triumph Tall adjustable screen but would like something wider to help keep the wind off my shoulders.

Regards, Paul

Is there any after-market exhausts that do NOT require a re-tune ?

Cheers

MAP Question - (Off Topic)

Speaking of maps .... Are Butler planning a Mexico or S. America series any time soon? I'm still learning GPS operation ... feel more secure with paper maps. Anything?

I have a Guia Roji ... and it's pretty good but TOO BIG. You can put 3 maps of Mexico next to each other ... and they ALL are different ... especially in and around the Sierra Tarahumaru .... where I've spent some time exploring.

Not if they're any good. In other words, if it doesn't require a re-tune then you might as well keep the stock exhaust.

I believe some folks have put on a Scorpion exhaust without a re-tune and it works okay; probably little to no performance difference, but you might shed some weight and add a few decibels in the process.

You make a good point

That said, I was thinking I wouldn't mind something a little more pleasing on the eye, a little louder/nicer sounding and something that weighed a little less. But, you do indeed make a great point so I guess which ever one I do got I will need a new tune.
