When I get confused, I try to rely on what one of my buddies used to tell me; it's supposed to go rubber side down. It can be challenging to remember at speed.

Anyone tried a Wings exhaust? I was going to get the Akra but the Wings winter pricing is pretty good.
Fit, Finish and Sound is as good as an Akropovic slip on, pricing was about 100$ less.

Looks pretty good. Thanks. The akra's are around $600 now from what I've seen. Pretty steep IMO and the Wings looks like a good option.

Just letting people guess a bit

Got a good deal on a DLC job on the lowers, better seals, so basically less stiction. The valving on theses 2011 forks is actually fine for me. I didn't really need the DLC, I'm no racer.... but smoother forks are always nicer, and I couldn't help myself. Many of you on this thread know exactly what I mean.

The rear shock just needed a bit heavier spring for my weight, and Konflict Motorsports had the spring coated exactly 'Husaberg' yellow.

Same as a "uncorked" stock muffler with the USFS spark arrestor insert. Slightly throatier with insert removed. (not loud by any means)

I put a Rocket Exhaust on because I didnt want to cut up the OEM exhaust. Only reason I did it that way is because I thought I might be moving to CA. If I knew I was going to end up in CO I just would have uncorked the OEM via the methods discussed in the various forums.
