Here is the test of my New GoPro, it has no point but i figured i could post it anyways.
The Shoei Hornet has this ridge that runs up from the sun guard and it makes it so i have to place the camera pretty far back so you really dont see any of the bike. which i dont really like.
When i get the BC fairing im going to mount one facing me, because i know thats what all you guys, and lady, want to see!

I have been trying to find a better solution for mounting mine. I did wire it up to my mouth vents on the XD3 for our first episode. That seemed to get a good camera angle, but it was a lot of work to mount and unmount. But yea, the top of the helmet really leaves out alot of bike, and the chest mounts are a bit shaky. I really like the crash bar shots. They look pretty good, however, the camera is always overheating there.

Maybe mount it on the side? ive seen some shot from that angle. it looks good, get to see alot of the bike and the trail, but you have this huge thing hanging off the side of your head....

I found full HD mode seems to give a picture without the distortion and fish eye view of the other modes.

I have mine mounted on the top of the helmet just to the rear of centre.

Just try not to land on your head while wearing one. They aren't as tough as they look.

YAY so i got my new headers and muffler installed.

So first i had to take off everything.



i took off the crash bars and skid plate because, well i needed to.





i then took a video, so i could get the sound, of the stock system, so i could compair.



Then it was time to take off the headers. i started with unbolting them from the block. the space was very tight and a pain in the ass.



I guess i didnt let them cool long enough, burnt my two fingers....



after i got the 4 bolts off of the block i took the muffler off.





and then i took off the supporting bolt under the back.



I had to take off the center stand guard in order to get the pipes out.



Time to put on the new set of headers!

I put the "top" pipe on first, dont do that! put the "bottom" one on first because of how the bolts are placed it just makes everything easier.



And BAM! New headers!



here is a video, again for the sound, of the remus headers and stock muffler.



the instal of the new muffler was super easy.





the only problem now was the fact that i couldnt mount my rear rack back on.

so if i dropped it down to just this much:



the only problem was it didnt come with a drop down..... or did it!

i used the baffle that came with the muffler to use as the drop down.



now it clears the top of the rack by 1/2 inch

Since there aren't a lot of people out there with the Remus header i thought i could give you guys some good info that might help you make a choose to get them or not.

the pipes are 5" around.
from the bottom of the brake lever, its 3 1/3" to the bottom of the lowest pipe.

2012-01-08_10-02-30_894

Also something to think about, the pipes come out farther up front too. check to make sure your crashbars will fit.







the headers come in 3 pieces, this is where they all meet.





and yes the stock o2 sensor fits



let me know if you have any questions about them. ill go and take any crazy pic you want.

Great write up! Those pics will definitely come in handy for a lot of people. I see you're in socal (Long Beach BMW plate surround), let me know if you're into a Death Valley trip this winter; I'm trying to head out there once a month for at least 3-4 days each.

So i know everyone is trying to find a skid plate that you didnt have to modify when using after market headers. well, I FOUND ONE!!! kinda. i only had to use a few washers and it bolted right back up.

I have an Altrider plate. it has pretty good coverage. So i had thought i would have to cut it in order to make it fit, just because no one had found on that fit without having too, and even if there had been i wasnt going to buy a whole new plate. so this morning i got out all my tools i would need in order to cut the plate.

first i bolted the plate on, just using the 4 bottom bolts. because i wanted to see where and how much i had i would have to cut.

so once i had it all bolted up. i saw that the pipes cleared to the right. it was only hitting the bottom, but only by less than a 1/4". so i figured id just try to see if i put some washers on it that it might fit. so i did and it cleared!



so i bolted it all up again and tried to attach the pivot bolt up front. but it was off by 1/8". well i knew it wouldnt be that easy. but i figured since i had put washers on the one side that was the reason why the pivot bolt didnt fit.



So why not add washers to the front mount?



and then i bolted up the mount.





BAM!!!! it fit!

the fit is indeed tight, but the headers do not touch any part of the plate. WINNING!
