Shoot man I think it looks great! You guys have been busy posting! FX I'm glad to hear that bike of yours is making some noise even though it isn't quite the noise you want (the video kinda sounded like bad gas).

Its fine probably because the fender and headlight aren't mounted but it was straight

EDIT:::

I went out, took a pic of mine the same way,,looks like the MSR is definately different...i wonder how long the tip is on the MSR from the tip,,to the right angle bend????????????????
It is about 55mm from tip to the first right angle bend. It is about 23mm from the case to the shift lever.

As I recall the overall length may be slightly longer, and it does sit further away from the engine case. However, mine was bent so many times and then re-bent, I have no idea what the stock distances are.

BTW

I just mounted a new shoe to the rear. I replaced the IRC GP-1, which I like very much with the much cheaper Shinko SR244. I'll let everyone know what I think. I do notice their tread pattern is slightly different, mostly on the edge. It also has longer lugs, by about 2mm. They are both rated as 5.10's, but the Shinko is about 2-3mm narrower. They also have a more rounded or oval profile. They look good, but time and riding will tell.
