I am thinking about new handlebars. After searching and being unsure of riding comfort, I found some bars that have a lot of adjustment, so I could potentially find the most comfortable position.

eh.. i don't know about those bars... a lot of connections that could vibrate loose/move. plus it says for 125cc scooter, not a huge motorcycle that vibrates like crazy. but if you do get up let us know how they work!

I decided I wanted a glass fuel filter. I made it work ;)

I plan on making the steel portion again, with a couple of brass 90's. this is just what I had!

Found some HD FLT Screamin' Eagles on craigslist for $25 and decided I had to do something about the sound.



It's not that is sounded bad... But it didn't sound good in the least bit.

Old compared to the new ones.



I found a steal and had to find a way to install them.







I did what I know how to do... Mediocre welding for sure. But I wouldn't let that stop me from making how I want it. The sound came out better than expected. Not quite finished, used a coat hanger to hang the right side enough to ride it a mile or so. Sounded great and I could feel the power increased from the new pipes.

why not put these one on top of the other on the right side only ?

you can get better sound but no performance increase over what you had before

Alriiight, you caught me... No new found power. But the confidence while I'm riding it has gone up hahaha

I almost did both on one side, but I plan on having hard saddle cases and this will make that an easy addition.

Plus, I like a symmetrical bike. Too off balance and I lose sleep!
