  11. hey mate, have the same bike as yours, ive ordered a windshield for mine, if you've ever wondered what effect that has, let me know and i'll give u a review, once I install it and go for a wrap, main reason im getting it ,is im riding to kosiuosko next month, so thought its a good ally to have on the highways :)

  15. Our Jacob recently bought one, I rode it (nice bike) but you can barely hear the exhaust. He had a muffler fitted by Peter Stevens and it's transformed the sound of the bike. What sounded like a sewing machine now sounds like a real twin.

    Take your mates advice and change the pipes (or at least fit a slip on), you won't regret it!

  16. I have a F aswell, so the new muffler doesn't stuff around with the engine?
  17. Good quality slip on mufflers do not require retuning.
  18. Thanks zrx. Yeah the only negative would the lack of sound, no issue really, but there could be just a liiiiiitle! bit more music coming from the engine:)
