I've got the whole set up on my '99 420. Watch out for the brake reservoir. You may want to fab. a small bracket to lower it away or it will melt out and leak brake oil everywhere. I use 12 discs, richer jetting on pilot and main. Sounds / looks awsome.

<font color="navy">I have the same setup. E-Series exhaust with the stock header. I'm running 16 discs (I had to buy more) and a 165 main jet. I live in Port Huron, Michigan and twice a year myself and a big group of guys go to the Monday Creek area south of Columbus. The trails kick a$$ down there! My bike runs excellent here and down there in the foothills of the Appalacians. Its a great setup!

Forgot to mention:
the exhaust slid right on, perfect fit.
