it will have to wait since i just ordered headers and muffler.
Yah but can you afford the gas...all that buffering means you've just created a lot of drag. I've been testing one on mine...lose approximately 10mpgs over a standard wind guard with an off road helmet. Over the long distance ride that can mean 39 to 43 you really want to do that to your F8? If that's what I wanted for gas mileage I would have gotten the Triumph 800 XC instead of the F8.
