    I had a scorpion on my ER6n - sounded great!

    A mate put the Arrow Darkline on his 650RL and hated it so much he went back to stock.....

    Possibly a silly question but why are those enormous fenders the default in the first place?
    Good job btw...

    It's a legal and compliance requirement. There must be a 45Deg angle which can be traced from the rear axle to the end point of the fender - usually to the reflector mounted on the final piece of the tail - the reflector itself MUST be the final point in the length of the bike, that is to say that the reflector MUST be overhanging the rear wheel.

    So essentially - these Fugly "fenders" are another beige wearing bureaucratic overhead we have to comply with....](*,)

    I think that the old muffler of the previous ER6 installed on the 2012.
    When I contacted them back in April they told me that they were planning to release one specifically for the 2012 model but not before the end of the year.

    Sound wise it's good but it's not optimised for this engine.

    If you really want to see the wizardry one can pull off on these kawas you should check out mordeth13's videos on youtube. He rides a ninja 650r, which essentially is just a faired version of your Er-6n. He's made a couple of videos showcasing the stuff done to the ninja (and on the cheap too). These cover everything from handlebar mods, to some device that lubes the chain intermittently, and automatically. Not sure what the latter is called exactly. I'm sure someone will know.

    Not sure if this link has been posted before....

    As a previous ER6n owner, this was THE GUIDE

    A little outdated, however still lots of great info
