Hey all! I've been lurking for a while and finally decided to sign up. This forum has been a blessing to me. It has answered pretty much any question I had. If I didn't find an answer, I just tried it out myself.

My bike is 2019, and I have done a few upgrades as well as just personalization. I will list them below, as well as attach pics. If you have any questions, comments, or ideas, please respond below. Thanks!

- Doc


- bracket to tidy up rear fender/license/turn signals

- front windscreen (double bubble)

- handlebars (1st I tried pro-taper mix bars)

- bar end mirrors (2nd favorite upgrade)

- radiator cover

- flush mount front directionals

- mzs triangle design clutch & brake levers

- frame sliders

- rear spools

- delkevic full exhaust, 14" tri-oval, stainless
(By far my favorite mod. Loving the sound. Can post video if anyone is interested.

How do you like those handlebars?
Do they help clamp down on vibration between the 4-6000 rpm range?

Are your rear spools metal?
I was afraid of installing my rubberized rear spools as I didnt want the one near the exhaust outlet to melt.

I'm loving the handlebars. Finally feels right to me. I don't notice much change in vibration, but I didn't think it was particularly bad before I changed the bars. I did notice that the mx bars did have less vibration though, but they were too wide and I couldn't cut them down due to the room needed for levers and such.

My rear spools are aluminum I believe. Sliders are not (which is the way I want it).

Did you get a tunner it anything for that exhaust. I just put the 9" on and an now a little concerned that I might mess something up by the bike not being fully broken in and I don't have a tunner or anything like that.

I have not had it tuned. I did the exhaust at around 1100 miles. I have noticed no negative consequences yet. Quite the opposite actually.

Right now I'm using clubman handlebars, and I like them even more than last ones.

I’ve got the 8 inch delkevic exhaust and am loving the sound as well. Would you mind posting a sound clip or video of your exhaust ? I’d like to see the difference in sound

I put back on the OEM exhaust because my son was born and I didn't want to wake him up everytime I started the bike. But now he is over 6 months old and im switching back to the Delkevic, hopefully this week when I have time. I will post a video with sound and show the new additions to my bike since I posted this.
