Hp2 seat

I remember my buddy telling me about your seat. I love the Saddlemen seat on my hp2. I'm getting ready to have one made for my k1200r sport. One of the best things I did to my hp2. Richard

exhaust weight

The weight savings is great but I like eliminating the CAT and air flow restriction. I notice no negative difference in the weight change. In fact it is better. Richard
