How much louder is the Leo Vince than an uncorked stock pipe? Low noise and a spark arrester are pretty key as this thing will be a 8-10 hours a day machine. My LC4 has a single pipe and I'm totally...

I COMPLETELY agree on the harmonics issue. I noticed this with my 990 and it was a function of the 908 being too "fat" on the huge rear rim it wasn't designed to be on. Once that was changed, all...

Bike is together.

Pilot looks fine. It's a 45. I need to get the bike together before I go changing anything. It ran fine except the bog off idle which I'm sure was the float being set wrong.
