2 big changes-one big smile
« on: May 19, 2013, 10:52:46 pm »
After doing alot of research from the Board I broke down and added the Helibars hanle bar replacement and a two brothers pipe.

Helibars = smile. I am now in the perfect position for this bike. My elbows drop down at a 90 degree angle with no pressure. Still attack the corners, really makes a huge difference.

Two brothers pipe - wow, what a difference. This thing must weigh 50 pounds less than the stock pipe and the sound is awesome. The bike feels quicker- love it.

Encourage everyone to try both of these guys.

went with black series m-5 carbon fiber. Bought it from more power racing $392.

I ran into another Concours guy and he had the pipe - really impressive the difference this guy makes.

I have the same pipe,love it.
The weight savings is huge, but did not notice any power difference other than me twisting it more to hear it grumble. :motonoises:
Pretty typical for my exp. with slip ons.
As a side note, I put in the p1x powertip to see how that worked, and boy did it work!
Made it sound so close to stock I had to remove it. Maybe re-install for long trips.
