I am skeptical of claims by aftermarket pipe venders as they only compare theirs to stock with baffle in. You can simply drill a few holes and shorten the stem on your stock baffle and see major improvements, and still be legal. Gloft, how hard was it to get street legal in Georgia?

1. Get a bonded title from my insurance agent along with liability insurance on the bike.($90.00 for title plus insurance cost)
2. Have bike inspected by our local law enforcement type (all he did was check VIN # against my title). Didn't seem concerned if it was street legal or not.
3. Purchase tag at local office (they send you the actual title in the mail)
That's it. Total cost around $200.00
As far as gearing goes, my Endurance computer indicated a max speed of 77 mph at last weeks enduro - I wasn't even ringing its neck! If I need more top end - say for a Desert ride, I'll put the stock sprocket back on.

Other good news, I found my sag had settled to 4 1/2". If it rides that well with the sag that far out, I can only imagine what improvement I will see now. That explains the tendency of the rear to spin out on turns..........
Its rained all dang week and I have only ridin once since Saturday. I can now feel how you guys up north must feel in the middle of winter........
