Almost looks identical to Josh Hayes' '07 race bike, platics anyway.

Very nice! :thumb:

Nice and shiny, looks real good :thumb: :thumb: but it's messed up to see that after 5 years, some companies still haven't figured out how to make the exhaust straight under the tail... ???

Nice bike!
Fret, my scorpion wanted to go on crooked like that at first. I had to loosen every thing up and start at the mid pipe and fiddle with it, then adjust the can, then the mid pipe...back and forth but I finally got it absolutely perfectly straight.
Cherry as in mint or as in cherry red. And if cherry red, wine cherry, wild cherry, black cherry, or mint cherry? Actually do you have some mint tires in minty green, or mint & chip?  ;D

Yeah I was thinking about messing with it but Erion put that system on the bike.  They ran the HRC/w Erion ti on SS and FX in 2007.  So that must be how it goes.  It looks weird but when I am following a guy in a race, like on the '07+ kawi, and you see the crooked exhaust I think it looks pretty cool.   Hindle made a system that looked nice.   

Anyways yeah Honda is using a gasket on the stator and clutch.  I tried to reuse it for the stator but it leaked so I used ultimate grey.  Erion said they use the oem gaskets but didn't seem to work for me.  Kinda of a pain on the stator lining it up perfect.  You know how it goes, line it up get it close then is slams on with the magnetized effect.  ha

sweet!
full race body kit, or did you just get mid/front cowls?
the lower cowl looks like the oem one, but i simply love the mid. closer to the 03-06 design, which i think looks better.
