Not sure, but I wish someone would take it out and flog it and get rid of those unsightly 1" chicken-strips...........:D

It almost looks like LDH's old ride.........

Just bought it a few weeks ago. Wow, sounds like its been around the block... As long as it doesn't have any bad history, that's ok I guess. Feels great so far. Only regret is I never rode a stock one so I don't have a baseline to compare to. Well, it sounds like rc51.org is a good place to visit as well so I'll check that out and maybe subscribe as well.

The rear seams kind of high as is. I'm 6' 11". Did you back off the preload after the washer/shim install? As for the exhaust, what would I gain by swapping exhausts? I'm guessing the whole concept for the Jardine 2-1 was for better midrange/lighter weight? Just trying to quantify or justify an exhaust swap... Appreciate any further info from anyone.

The 2-1 does the opposite. It reduces mid and adds top. For the RC the mid is the sweet spot. So taking that away really hurts. As for the rear the I would shim and reduce preload to make the ride more compliant. But if your 6-11 I would say testing is your only real choice because your a BIT out side the norm for rider size.

Sorry, type-o, I meant to write 5'11". I hear you about the midrange. That is the true sweet spot for all twins. So is there a forum concensus on the "best" exhaust system (for performance)?

Just got a new bike. Whatcha think? Was kinda pissed my sneaker protector didn't match my custom paint when this pic was taken.

Amazing. All the $$$ went into chroming, none left for any trick turn signals??
