Here is a short not so good video , my lattest mods are foot pegs , brake & shifter and grips with end weights surprised how much difference thoose make , I have left the front loli pop turn signals on and not blacked out the headlight or taillight for better visiablity, but do plan on changing the headlight.
Ooh and the taillight mod very happy with that and my licenese plate now the cops can see it and its not in the way any more.
I did get rid of the popping or backfiring by installing a carbon fiber gasket on top of the factory one on the headers. so 95% of that was a exaust leak ,but if you decell hard enought it can still do it once and a while.

I want to change the mirrors and do some other things but I need to focus on bills right now , they had that rode closed at one end so no traffic .
Its a poor quality video that really does no justice. 8)
We don't see many vids on here so I thought I would put one up ,will try for a better one when the sun comes out looks like rain in So Ca. today.

Hey Clar.. before you installed the new carbon fiber gaskets, did you have an exhaust leak before?

As far as your video goes, It would be great to watch it, but being deployed to the middle east , the military tends to block alot of picture and video hosting sites..i.e.. youtube, imageshack.. ect. Looks like I have to wait until May to watch it. lol
only a pop once in a while on decell , so that counts as a exaust leak , nothing you could here normally

Thats cool how you did your license plate. It that the R1 integrated tail light?
yes thats the R-1 it works great and is brighter than the stocker ,its just a poor quality video , the plate is just bent and secured to the fender and 2 led bolt lights for lighting.
I tryed many different things with my plate, I like it a lot there.

Nice!! Your bike has a great sound!!
Thanks the pipes have 2 different baffles in them ,big city thunder QQ baffles 6 inches up and the stock V&H cut down with the screen removed , I spent a long time trying to find the sound I like , they have a nice rumble but not enought to give you a ear ache.
Lould pipes save lives.

Cool vid Clar. I just got my v&h pipes installed and love the sound. I get a little popping on decel so Im gonna have to try the carbon gaskets.

I'm going to be adding the cobra intake soon. What kind of tuner/ecu did u put on yours?

Also got the M-1 light, and I'm gonna put two led strips to either side for added turn signals. I had a ***** of a time getting the cover off the M1 light. Gonna wait to do the mod until weather wont let me ride anymore. I'm gonna mount the light like you did except fab a bracket for the license plate to go under it.
I have the cobra auto tunner, the gasket material I used you might not need it but I could not get mine to seal 100% without even with planning the header flange.
I went to autozone and ordered a 10+10inch piece of exaust material and just cut it out, it was a soft carbon fiber with a medal inside. 1/6inch thick.
Just added up my mods $5,500 todate wish I had that in my pocket today.
