i just installed them and it only took me about 3 hours to do it all!!! it took me a bit longer because im a bit of a perfectionist and i also took about 4 beer breaks so that accounts for some time!!! ive had the bike for about 2 months and i have almost 1800 miles on it. i just cant seem to stay off it. tell me what you think. i was also thinking of cutting the 4 screws off the exhaust for now till i upgrade to a akra. and maybe fabricating a plate to go over it to cover that plain metal.
