New Cans for VTR1000F '06

Discussion in 'Technical and Troubleshooting Torque' at netrider.net.au started by Custard, May 2, 2007.

  1. Yo fellow netriders,

    I have recently aquired a black '06 Firestorm which is desperately in need of a set of cans. I'm relatively new to the whole mods for road bike thing, so any advise would be greatly appreciated. I need:

    Street legal
    Deep tone - low, nice and growly, not too woofy, but not psycho loud either (I've heard carbon fibre is the go)
    Not too fussed if they are chrome or darker colour (carbon) - am warming to the dark ones tho..
    No mods to pegs as I regularly go 2 up
    Something which doesn't require radical carby mods - minor is ok (and info on rejetting if required)

    So what have people got?? what do you like??

    Also while I'm here, do any of you VTR people have bar risers (I've heard of kits with 16mm risers which don't require mods to brakes and clutch etc). How much are they??

  2. wow what a demanding first post!! haha

    Prolly should have said Hi first.. so .. hey.. (nods)
