First thanks for the technical insight and encouragement. I did it. The results are fantatstic. Opened the airbox and installed a dynojet kit and a Yoshimura RS2 exhaust system. I also installed devol radiator guards and a moose carbon fiber skid plate, Next is the removal of the OEM tail-light and installation of the LED fender tip light. I have a set of MT 43 Pierelli's that I think it needs too. Oh and a 15 tooth countersprocket. It pulls better and feels really good. I love the note of the Yosh pipe ..
