Well the exhaust isn't as loud as I thought it was going to be. Then again, I wear ear buds when I ride, so others may have a different opinion on that It is no louder than my DRZ at least. It seems to be turning higher rpm than I felt it should when I was running up the highway so I checked and the sprockets have been changed to 16/45 which looks to be -1/+2. That has moved right up to the top of my list of things I am going to do (will go back to stock gearing) One thing to check off of my list is I got my gps set up on her. I used a RAM ball from a u-bolt kit which had perfect spacing to fit under the front tank bolts. Bad angle in this pic. I can see the gauges fine over the top of the GPS when sitting on the bike.
