Wow that looks great.... are you still using the 310 mm or did you upgrade to 320mm rotors? Its hard to tell from your pic but I cant see any spacers. Also what did you use to hold your fairing down after you removed the mirrors? Does anyone make a nice block off plate yet?

+1 on the Marchesini's. I'd get em in black on mine. I got the TRS slip-on coming in the mail. How does that thing sound? idle? putting around? WOT?

The pipe is surprisingly loud. I like the sound. even idle its pretty noisy. I need to ride behind the bike on my dads while he is on mine to really hear how it sounds. I'll let you know. I plan on cutting mine and making it a shorty and im sure it will scream then.

Yeah, that's what I was thinking too, chopping a couple of inches off and make it look something like this

Nice mods.............love the wheels



You say Ohlins front coming soon.
How do plan to go about the radial mounts? Change fork bottom or use radial adapter plates?

I would appriciate any info on this as I am thinking of going the same route myself.

Sent you an e-mail

Nice work!

Have you thought about a custom hanger for the pipe? Stock looks fine but... If you want you could take the foot rest off of the passenger hanger (remove the c-clip and pull the pin), see how it looks.

I took my left side off as well and waiting to decide on which pipe. I plan on getting a shorty too.

Very nice bike mate. I think the Yoshi looks great just the way it is. It's alot smaller than those Akrapovic battleship cannons and other long ass, old school pipes they are selling for the K5.
