    So followup questions on changing the exhaust. When I bought the bike, the previous owner put a K&N filter on the intake, put the exhaust on and then jetted the carb for the modifications. If I leave the filter on but change the exhaust with mufflers like Doc has suggested, will I have to rejet the carb back to where it was? Can I leave the filter on with the new muffler system without problems?

    Thoughts?
    Remember. No matter where you go, there you are.

      No problem using the K&N filter with different pipes. Just make sure whatever muffler you chose, that it doesn't have a catalytic converter inside. As far as re-jetting, it really depends on what mufflers you end up using. I'd just start with installing them and see how the bike performs. If necessary, you can try dialing in the PMS some, and if that doesn't do it, then you can start messing with the jets and needle. Also, it would help us if you posted your jetting in your user info. If you don't know it, no need to worry, you can cross that bridge when you come to it.

          I love Idaho, I'd move there in a second but the fam would say no so I'd be lonely. The sheep would be nervous.

        KCparts, Ive never been out side of California for more then a week. Couple times to Klamath Falls for a weekend, Hawaii for a week twice, Oklahoma for a couple days. Las Vegas for a week and Reno for a day. Mexico twice for a week Oh and Colorado Airport! Thats it. I have been using google earth to guide
        me in the right direction. Need access to snow, mountains, rivers and lakes. And need to be a dry heat summer. Idaho would have to much snow for my needs. And I dont think Id make enough on the salary end. And not close enough to retirement.

        I had the HK big straights and they were loud, a little tinnie sounding. Though mine cracked around a mounting bolt. Changed them out for Freedom True Dual 4 in performance with black tips. Much more mellow and a deeper rumble and I can hear now. I do miss the heat though from the HKs, my bike runs so hot with the Freedom's seemed like the heat shields on the HKs were much better.

        Most of the roads in CA need desperate repair. There are some beautiful rides out there, like CA-1, but I think there are more crazy drivers out there than anywhere else. No kidding I was almost run off the road 3 times, from 3 different Toyota Prius' on one ride.

          Maybe it's just Prius drivers have their head up their @ss? ;-P

          Remember the movie "the other guys"? "...you're literally driving a vagina on wheels!"
