    Another dorso owner

    hey all, i currently own an 11`RSVR APRC, it went in the shop for a little while over xmas and aprilia aust. gave me a dorso 1200 to use while mine was out of action.
    I really didnt think much of it for a while, but there was something about it.
    By the time i had to give it back, um.... i really didnt want to.
    After a couple of weeks, i missed it. i was talking to the owner of brisbane aprilia and he said it was kinda special the fact it had suspension work done, arrow pipes and it was the australian test bike.
    Needles to say, i bought it and love it.

    Awesome! I love how the arrows look on the bike. I'm still kind of torn between those and LV, but leaning towards the arrow.

    me too + the arrow db-eater look very easy to be removed ... how much power do you need to get the "ring/spring" out ? are pliers needed or is "hand-power" enough ?

    The ring comes out very easy with small spring pliers, but the db killer tube itself was a mofo the first time.
