I just got done putting a vance and hines sidewinder on my 891100. It looks so sweeeeet!!! And sounds sooooo MEAN!!!!
I'll post pics when I get them. Hey I started it up and she purred like a kitten. If I choose not to rejet how much performance will I lose? She had a micron exhaust on it before..............

I think your bike will make that choice for you. GO FOR A RIDE! If you feel any "flat" spots in the power delivery or hesitation in acceleration, you've got to jet 'em.

As a nite worker I'm only awake between 4pm and 8am. My neighbors really like it when I get home at about 3am with my Yosh race only pipes.

How stricked are they up there with as far as inspecting bikes (checking for to make sure everything is street legal).........if I rode the 89 on the street with the sidewinder on it....I'd get busted for sure!
Cops don't like exhuasts they can twirl 3 or 4 nightsticks inside

</td></tr></table></td></tr></table></BLOCKQUOTE>Why would you want a sidewinder on your 750?Unless you dragrace exclusively and need to SLAM your bike to the ground it makes absolutely no sense whatsoever.Forget about cornering and youll have to cut up your plastic to make it fit.I found that the oldschool V&H supersport(4 into 1)gives great power and sounds mean too.I had one on my 190 horsepower 7/11.But if yer just lookin' to be a posuer,then by all means

I spent all weekend cleaning and cutting my bike. I was a madman with the dremel and there was alot of cutting going on. I cut up my rear and also the rear tails to give my '88 a sleeker look. I LOVE THE DREMEL!!!!!! And then the polishing kicked in. My frame was done before, and after some more polishing on the weekend it looks brand new!! I'll post some before and afters as sson as the chain comes in!!

Here's the before


Here's the during


The after is soon to come!!!
