Nothing like coming home from work and finding new motorcycle parts sitting on your front steps...
Luckily I work from home so I'm just waiting to see "package detected at front door" lol. Don't think I ever would have pulled the trigger if I hadn't heard them in person beforehand. Between the BTmoto tune and this exhaust, hoping to have something a bit more rip roaring. God knows my wallet is tired of this bike alreadyNothing like coming home from work and finding new motorcycle parts sitting on your front steps...
I ordered the Wunderlich stainless steel mesh for the oil cooler; I broke down and spent $60 for something I probably could have bought at our local Benj Bros hardware store... Definitely not as exciting as a new exhaust system..
Looks good!I put together a temporary exhaust solution while I continue to work on getting my fishtails modified. The mini tailpipes have no baffles and I added a short section of chrome heat shield to cover the gap between the OEM heat shield and the tailpipes which are black with a chrome tip.
Came out pretty good other than the misaligned heat shields. It does sound good.
How much is the fish?
the screw on rhs as facing of the copper tank rondel isn't horizontal..;-( lol. lovely job so far.. p.s. OCD and bikes don't go well together..lolMade a pedestrian slicer for front fender, copper backing plate for engine nameplate, and highly reflective bmw stickers for the wheel rim. Finally, a phone-sized back on the tank and drink holder on handlebars
Very nice well doneAfter some time I have finally installed a custom luggage rack for my 2021 Classic FE. I had a chap design a prototype using CAD, and the initial rack was plasma cut. It required a couple of minor tweeks, and the beta version 2 was a GO. I had a friend use a polishing wheel to smooth some burrs off which remained after the 5052 aluminum, 3/16", was cut. Then I had it Type III anodized. I just put it on the fender and I am happy. It is sturdy and fit for purpose. I do not plan to leave the rack on my machine all the time, just when I am taking a trip long enough to require some extra stuff.View attachment 8727View attachment 8728View attachment 8729View attachment 8730
