Looks like you have had a busy month. The bike looks good. Watch out hanging around here, there are always more ideas and that means more money!! How do you like the mufflers, are they very loud?

I have been pretty busy. The muffles sound great with the cat out. They are mellow and a bit quite when cruising and loud when running it hard. I really like the sound. I had a set of CFR'S before these and I pulled them off in less than 30 miles. They were to dang loud. I was just about deaf.

I had looked at those mufflers but when I called RC components they lead me to believe that they might be louder than I was wanting. All they really would say is how much louder they were compared to Rineharts. I really like the Excalibur tips, was going with the black mufflers. Glad to hear that they are not very loud.

I would say they are equal to rineharts as far as how loud they are. I wouldn't say that they are too loud.

It really works great and looks good. The other fans you can get look like crap. I got the black one and it just blends right in.

I can use my powervision and monitor the engine temps and this thing droped the head temp around 30 degrees. I say it's worth the money.

Not trying to hijack the thread.
Just a note, I was customer #33 of the fans, Jason did a lot of R&D before he put the product out, they work and are absolutely the best one available IMO. BTW OP the bike is looking good.
