    Yes, it's louder than stock but not by much. It sounds very mild with 3 disks.

    No one would ever get offended running it like that. When I find time I'll post a 3 disk sound video. It can quickly and easily be adjusted from quiet mild street riding to wide open full on competition and anything in between.

    Well, I got the lights on my bike all installed and wrapped up. I did end up having to slide the license plate a little to the left because the exhaust was hitting the right edge of the plate and making the exhaust sound weird as the sound waves bounced around.

    I tried to take photos and video, but the SkeneDesign lights are designed to flicker at a frequency that we barely notice but the camera freaks out.

    here is what I could get

    I was wondering how he got it to stick to the wall.

    can’t figure out how to rotate on the phone without them showing up sideways on the forum. Guess I’ll have to take all photos in landscape instead of portrait.

    that's the ticket I guess. You'd think that would be a prominent primary edit in a cell phone camera... :dunno

    There should be a small circular arrow "rotate" icon.

    I did rotate and tried again. I finally moved them to a laptop and will try again.

    Could you post some pics of the blinkers not blinking out in the daylight? I'd like to see how they're mounted. Thanks. :-)

    Held on with double sided tape and a zip tie. Since the rock guards are attached to the lowers you have to mount them high enough to remain visible at all times. Mine may disappear under heavy bumps or braking.

    Please let me know. I'm still teetering on the fence on whether to buy one. I've had it sitting in my shopping cart for a while now.

    Will do. :-)

    I ran an FMF PowerBomb header on my DRZ for 10 years. It was part of an exhaust system I put together combining a cut down stock exhaust with SuperTrapp parts.

    While I never dynoed it, the bike ran great. Here's an old video.

    I called Dobeck yesterday and they still have no tuners in stock. You lucked out getting one!

    Just got a KLX200 snorkel today and am going to try it out.

    Did the calculations a couple years ago, the KDX snorkel has near twice the cross section of the stock unit and matches up with the size of the intake manifold cross section between the air box and carb bell mouth.

    Thanks for the interesting information. I like compatable OEM parts. They fit just right.

    Great info guys! And thanks southwade for pointing me to this thread.

    Any idea how much the stock muffler weighs? Delkevic lists 3.571 lbs for the Stubby 14" Carbon Fiber Oval Muffler and 4.233 lbs for the Stubby 14" Stainless Steel Oval Muffler.

    Anybody tall riding one of these? Will they take a riser stock without much cable fiddling?

    I'm 6'4 with a 34" inseam.
