Yellow Pig: Build quality I believe is top notch, only thing i have to compare against is the Yoshimura on my WR450 though. Sound and noise level is great, I have the quiet insert and its pretty quiet while putting along but It makes a very nice note while wringing its neck. very happy with it.
The importer here in Aus was very helpful, spoke to him on the phone a couple of times and can recommend highly.

I installed new handguards and grips yesterday because they were damaged a month ago after kissing the ground .
The installation of the grips was a "pain in the ass" !! Still need new tires, those TKC80 suck on dirt.

Maybe you did, but use of compressed air to 'inflate' the grip usually makes this a breezy chore.

And, Louisdut - hot pic!!

This happens when you use to much front brake on wet surface. Lesson learned !

I run a Dunlop 606 on the front and a Motoz Tractionator Desert on the rear.

The rack and tailbag are both from touratech. I've put my toolbag in there and some towels. Yes, I like it, it's handy if you can put some stuff away.
