    I went with the GD muffler and the Procycle carb kit using the 150 jet and am very pleased. I think I will get the insert to tone it down just a little but don't think it is sure loud right now.

    Too bad I was banned last week. I would have helped you out. Everyone knows I carry a spare master link with me ALL THE TIME. :augie

    The evening prior to this you passed by me and then I rode behind you all the way down the 101. I'm the one with the red VFR with the giant GIVI case in the back. :D Next time give me the ADV salute.

    No way! Do you commute regularly? Usually guys on bikes like that can be touchy. I wouldn't want to hurt anyone's feelings :D:evil:clap

    :lol3

    I've been commuting on the bike since I moved down here 5 years ago.

    Usually up the 10 in the mornings. Down the 101 in the evenings. I keep it at a sane pace at 80. Unlike you hooligans on KLR's that blow past doing wicked speeds. :lol3

    Yeah well it wouldn't take me that long to catch and pass him on my VFR. But I'm not looking to win any additional performance awards. :deal

    Julio,

    Not yet but thanks for the link that's perfect. I will be stopping at Home Depot this week and get the mounting stuff:clap:clap:clap

    I also ordered the foam filter wrap to go with the K&L filter.

    While cleaning the garage I noticed that I still have your impact driver, let me know when you get home and I will drop it off.

    Thanks again for all the help everyone.

    Bill

    Good deal. It's a really good idea to put that prefilter on. This is my DR's prefilter after doing just two days of riding (the southern AZ ride we did a few weeks ago) .

    As you can see, with the airbox open you're gonna get a lot more of that nasty stuff in there.

    No rush on the impact driver. Drop it off whenever.

    Nice! I don't like the 10 very much so I take the 101 to the 202 to get to Phoenix everyday and the reverse on the way home. I'll keep an eye out for you from now on.

    Well, I will be riding the bike to work tomorrow and then slabbing it up to Prescott for the Howling at the Moon weekend:clap Can't wait to see how the bike handles with all the changes.

    Hope to see at least a few familiar faces there and wish everyone who can't make it a great weekend.

    PS

    Thinking about doing a Mt Lemmon ride next weekend for anyone wanting to join in.

    Take Care

    Wade,

    Glad you are going and I'm also going to do the B ride. Hope it isn't beyond my ability but we will see. Lynx lake is just down the road from my Sisters place where I'll be staying so I'll be sure to see ya.


    Ricardo, Mike and Wade

    Looking forward to seeing you. This ride should be quite a bit easier than Sheep's bridge. We can work out the detail next week as we have several different options.

    Stunting? :cry

    I know that the single sided swing arm is always highly sought after.
    Nobody really wants a VFR motor because who the hell needs one? :dunno
    If the plastics were good they'd be worth a pretty penny but nothing on that thing looks to be in tact.

    the 94 is the same type as my 95 which has a dual headlight.

    so either that hunk of shit has a 93 headlight on it or it's not a 94.

    Smelly fishy.

    Bill, did you survive the ATR event? I figured you would have posted by now.
