Flyboybiker Figured I'd throw un update in here.

Got the final tuning done late in the season, big motor running even smoother, pulls like a beast, 140FTlbs at 3500 rpm, peak hp low 130's but it's not set up for hp, I wanted big low end torque, and we achieved that, very rideable and fairly quiet, with a nice rumble. I know that with a different exhaust we would exceed the 140 mark on both, but I wanted a dual exhaust without excessive noise.

Installed the progressive mono tube and realized after the fact that it was the wrong kit! I was sent the standard kit, and not the 1" lower like I had ordered, my bad for not checking before installing. So figured I'd try the legend cartridge kit, still waiting for it. So if anyone wants a basically new progressive monotube kit...

Riding season done up here, so I figured I'd install the level 3 Soundz system. It has not gone smooth. Hung up on the amp install, I had bought the front fairing amp bracket from Soundz, but when mounted the stereo had a 1/4" gap around it at the inner fairing, tried modifying with no success. So now trying to figure out how to mount the amp in the stock fairing bracket, its the arc moto 600.4
Not too happy with the fit of the focal 570 in the rear lids either, not crazy about making new holes to fit the speaker, but Im sure it will work.

Anyways, will update as I make progress..

I'm not sure how to post bigger pics, those two are all I have right now. I will be installing the progressive mono tube kit, I did their kit on my last bike and was quite happy with it. I have a Legend air ride kit sitting in the garage, but I'm undecided wether I want to put that on, or go the Ohlins route. I hated the stock bars when I got it, but they have grown on me a bit, what I would like is the Klockwerks ergo bars, but they do not make them for the RG. I'm not into Ape's and I have short arms, but would like a better angle for my wrists, and of course black.

Engine has the tman 662-2, compression in the 11.5 area. Setup for torque not max hp. Thing pulls like a beast at 2000rpm.

In the completed pictures it appears that you are still using the E Series Mufflers but the they are now connected to a 2-1-2 system. I presume you are using the Fuel-Moto High Output 2-1-2 exhaust.
I initially had the fuel moto header, but after seeing the header and talking to my tuner, I was convinced to switch to the Rush HO header, but kept the e series muffs for now.
I'm losing some hp with this setup, but my ears are not bleeding, and the bike builds big torque down low.
Thanks for all the compliments guys!
