Now I just can't wait to ride the thing and see what it'll do!

Now my question is about the emissions, how does that little tube work, is there a smog pump? or does it just go from the intake to exhaust? Can you post some pictures of it, I'm just curious!

Those are the real deal Renthals for sure. I didn't even think it'd come with the bar pad, but sure enough, there it is.
I put the silencer on myself when I got it home after I had run the bike up and down the street a few times with the stock one. It only took about 5 minutes to do and doesn't require reusing the any clamp. Per the instructions, "We have found that the stock jetting of this vehicle works excellent and no jetting is required .
Compared to the stock silencer, the E2 is much more throaty and a bit louder. However, it is not nearly as loud as my buddies WB R4. Basically, it has the same "tone" but much less "thump" as the R4. Also per the literature that came with the pipe, "Quiet core design. Meets sound regulations of 96db." and "Developed to be either U.S.F.S. (96 db legal system) or a competition system. (Convers to either in a matter of seconds)" So there ya go. I'll have to put a db meter on it and let you guys know what I find out.

Ok, emissions. There's a metal tube that runs along the right side of the head and into the exhaust port in the head itself. I thought it was gonna run into the pipe, but I guess they wanna make it a bit harder to bypass the setup. The emissions pipe is feed by what kinda looks some kind of pump. Maybe a diaphram type? Dunno. I haven't stared at it long enough yet. I will definately post some pics today.
Texas- Thats sucks! The BLM oughta do something about those damn jumping trees! Along with their cousins, the jumping bush, jumping rocks, and the ever elusive jumping cholla cactus!

The flak jacket is pretty comfortable, but it gets hot if you are standing around in it(It's not bad while you're riding.) Most important thing is, it covers everything. Elbows, shoulders, and chest, and it also has a built in kidney belt.

simon- Only the California versions of the '05 WR have the smog dealie in order to make it green stickerable. I'll be posting some pics of it soon. As far as the tank, its 2.1 gallons, so whatever that translates to in liters.

Oh, and I just looked in the manual. The tank is 8L.
