Hi David,
Just curious, were the stainless pipes a 4:1 pattern or a 4:2 like the OEM pipes?

Ride was good, and engine running well. Still running it in with about 600 kilometers on it so far so haven't taken it much over 6000 rpm (IMO these engines only get going from 6000 onward). I'll wait till I have 1000 kilometers on it to let it free up, then see what it can really do.
