    nice job, let us know if you can feel any difference through the airbox and exhaust work.

    That road 5 is a sticky tire on the sidewall! I’ve run 4 and 5 on my caponord and will definitely get better mileage out of the 4 but the sides of the 5 are like a slick they’re so gummy. Can you tell any difference after gutting the cat?

    Since I did all of the mods at once, I would not be able to pinpoint what improvements each one made. After looking at the CAT, I am surprised air even passes through those things. I just believe in removing restrictions on both the intake and exhaust.

    I drilled holes, used chisel, and pulled with needle nose pliers. Took a good 2 hours, the chisel was most affective.

    You need to vaccum out the debris and also start the bike without exhaust pipe hooked up to blow the chunks out as well.

    Managed to fit a Denali Split Soundbomb. Very tidy install in the end but took ages to find a good spot for it.
    I fitted it to the left side of the bike. Attached the horn to the bottom front of the Hepco Becker crash bars and hid the compressor inside a triangular inner fairing piece, cable tied to a big thick hose. Then I ran the tube out through a vent in this plastic piece and down to the horn.
    Seriously loud horn, well worth the effort finding a spot for it.
    Will upload pics if anyone wants.
