Does it move much at high speeds or is it pretty stable?

it is ALOT more stable than i thought it would be.... i had to trial and error with mounting to get it just right... at highway speeds when it is cold out, i can lean a little forward and it takes a bit of the wind off me. makes it a bit more bearable when i'm riding to work at 4 am. cant beat the price. the BMW version was just too much $. plus another $120 for mounting hardware. crazy!

Sweet! How many miles did you cover and in how many days? Look like a fairly sized load you got there, what all did you bring?

Glad I found this thread. I saw one at the dealer last fall and really liked it. Thought it was a bit expensive though. Now that I see that the price has been reduced I'm going to reconsider. Good stuff keep it coming.

Hey deli,

Rob Metzger put up a post in the F650 forums about his Remus pipe...mentioned something about there being a gap at that junction you're speaking of and needing to use a gasket. Here's the link: http://f650.com/phpBB2/viewtopic.php?t=217905
Hope that helps and definitely get in touch!
