    Must say Sean, that looks very good! First time I see this silencer other than on their website - how does it ride, any gains maybe?

    Yours too? LOL, I love that shit. Every time I shut my bike off there is a moment of silence, and then it goes off like a potato gun.

    Yeh, I want to see what gains you have as well. What mods have you done to the motor?

    I wrapped my exhaust all the way back past the shock. If nothing else it keeps me and the shock running cool. Now I just need to find a way to keep the stuff from ripping on bushes.

    IMS 7 gal. I like it cause it carries the fuel low.

    Yes it does, a Mikuni vacuum pump, on the lhs - it comes with this standard. This tank is less wide as the Acerbis, and fits well.
    Mind though, this tank canNOT be removed off the bike when full - at least, not without adding quick-connectors with checkvalves, obviously to prevent leaking fuel all over when removing this tank.

    Careful with the "less wide" because the Acerbis is actually narrower.

    The Acerbis is very narrow between the legs, but flares out in front, the IMS is wide between the legs, but stays narrower up front.

    As was said it does have a vacuum fuel pump (very reliable) and i have check valved quick disconnects installed so removing the tank is easy without fuel loss. Personally i don't find the tank wide at the knees at all and i wear knee braces. Like i said before it carries the fuel low which is great for balance.

    I have big hands so mounting the 6.3 Acerbis is a pain in the ass! Is the IMS 7 easier to take on and off? Anyone with experience mounting both?

    Alright I'm bumping this back up with new components and even less of a guess. I've got an entire new electrical system because I thought it might have incorrect spark timing. I replaced the woodruff key thinking that might contribute to missed timing. No change.

    Any help would be greatly appreciated!

    Dude you've got a ton variables going on. If you can, do one thing at a time. Makes life way easier, especially with how suspect new electronics are.

    Don't know about the Acerbis but i have no problem with the IMS. I wear XXXL gloves:D. I carry a 1/4" drive ratchet and long extension to reach the front 2 mounting bolts. Mounts up easily.

    Yeah I know. The thing is I have been doing everything one piece at a time. You are just looking at a list of six months of swapping parts around. I would have taken it to a dealer or something a while ago if I thought they could do better. I have changed so much on this bike that I'm not sure a mechanic would have a starting point.
