After selling my 2002 f4i I figured it was time for an upgrade. In March of 09 this rr on craigslist in Montana listed for 6500, with only 1500 miles on it. After talking the guy down to 6000 I took the pass thru one of our wonderful snowfalls in the mountains to pick it up.
The mods it had done when purchased:
- Two Brothers slip on
- TST industries Integrate Tail light
- Puig DB smoke windscreen
- Solo seat cowl
- Bigskymotorsports.com plate bracket
- Ebay CF Mirrors
- Ebay clear flushmounts
- ER Racing frame sliders/tie down hook
The first thing I did to it was add a Honda CF tank protector and a Honda CF gas cap protector
Next was the pro grip white reflective wheel tape
After riding around for a little bit with the 2bros slip on I figured I would shop around for a full system. I decided to go with the yoshimura ss piping and the cf canister. The night I got the package I just got back from a softball game and was drinking just a bit. I thought it was a good idea to assemble the headers first... well that wasn't a good idea because I didn't realize how tight of a fit the headers would be.
And with perfect timing the PCV came in the mail while I was installing the exhaust.
Here are some pictures of the yoshimura install... you can see how tight it was when fitting the header.
I had the yoshi installed without the PCV installed. I started the bike up and waited for it to warm up. While it was warming up it was idling really weird and then would back fire if I revved it past 5k. Then it was time to rip apart the rest of the bike and put on the power commander.
After installing the license plate bracket I ran into the problem of the plastic touching the mid pipe. But no fear, I recently ordered the Tripage Adjustable Bracket.
