took the bike out for a spin last night for about 25 minutes or so because the snow had finally gone and it actually wasn't that cold. midnight to 12:30am or so. loved it! the extra power makes the bike feel so much lighter!
it has running lights and the difference just the headlight and high beam and with the running lights is amazing. I don't know how I managed with just the headlight before.
I would like a little more thump to the exhaust (my old 13 was clayton'd) looking for something a little more thumpy but not much louder because I come home late often and the neighbors might try and crucify me. I've read alot of threads about the 18 and clayton-ing and riley-ing. has anyone done the drilling through the angled fashia and the endcap of the stock exhaust? I know it won't "sound like a harley" because of difference between the setup of the lifters, but will I get a little more thump?
The rev limiter seems to kick in mighty quick IMO surprised the stuffing out of me the first time I hit it on an on ramp. seems like first gear kicks in around 30, 2nd limits about 60, and third is somewhere above 60 (wasn't watching the speedo)
