So was it some work, yes, does my bike look stock w/ addtioanl storage and more rumble, yes. are the cans much cooler, yes. Did it affect performance and or mileage, no.
I looked at it this way if it all worked it cost me a few bucks for material and some time which i was willing to put into it. If it did'nt work, well then i buy after market cans which i was going to do. And now i dont have to.
My thinking exactly. If i can spend some of my time to save some money Im all for it.
The used cans was actually my next route if this doesnt work. I have access to a welder and a bunch of other fun tools at my work.
Also the search button sucks. Every time I try and use it it shows me a bunch of totally irrelevant stuff if anything at all. I did try manually looking through the OC posts though and didnt see anything. I have also checked out the HOW and saw whats all inside the stock cans.
Thanks for the input everyone. Ill post whatever I end up doing. Working on cutting my stock windshield down a bit today.
