It's mainly there as a resonator and to add volume to the system. It's really heavy compared to a single system. There is no advantage that I know of except that it looks like a Rallye (and that's enough for me ).

OK, it wasn't your system then. Yes, my crossover broke going through Mengel Pass, after beating it into some rocks. I bought that other system to replace that crossover and replace a scraped up muffler. I'm not beating that bike offroad anymore. I have a '99 to use for that.

Does anybody know where to get replacement tank decals? A shop with old stock on the shelf? I tried to buy replacements but Cycle Hutt told me they couldn't get them.
munn racing has the decals....

Hey Thule,

Did the previous owner have it for a short time? There was one for sale in Burien that I just missed last year.

I picked it up from a guy here on the board in Wenatchee. He owned it for about 4 years and previously the bike lived in Tacoma.

If you're looking for one there is a 98 with some nice upgrades on it on Denver CL right now for $3500

I need one, like a hole in my head.



I am going to be selling the project bike soon, if anyone is interested.

So, for the record (on page one), Vin 8793 now belongs to "ME".

A few nice MODS on the bike "As Purchased"

-Custom rallye exhaust
-FCR39MXII carb (JD jet kit, R&D mixture screw, Honda diaphram).
-30mm risers by loaded
-12V outlet on left of console. Switch to..."nothing".... on right side (I may utilize that switch for heated grips in the future)

Only MODs "I've made" (thus far) was purchase/install of right mirror and installation of Baja Designs LED rear tail/brake light & license plate holder and flush mount turn signals....






Mods in waiting:

-Build date for new Renazco seat is January 19th
-Another set of custom "Crawdad Racing" Graphics on order from Hunt Graphics: http://www.huntgraphic.com/CUSTOM.htm

Link to trip report/photos documenting post purchase ride back to San Diego from Denver last month:
