Agree. This color choice was not an improvement. C'mon people, Black is beautiful.
Revzilla has the headers for $679 or some such amount. Not bad. I want to do them next spring.Where'd you find the headers? Did you consider having your exhaust ceramic coated? I've done that on my Yamaha FZ1 & am pleased with the result.
I will let you know in a week ... ;-)So you can run the akropovic header with stock mufflers and not have issues with the OEM boxes ? How was the sound after the change ?
