Last week I got a wild hair and decided to try a new carb and exhaust combo just to see how much power I could gain back. Well after two nights in the garage I got it all dialed in. I've only ridden it a few miles this morning so its not completely tuned in but its running good. The new setup is an S&S Super E and a Thunder header, definitely a different feel, noticeably more pep through the power band. Here is my hang up though, I absolutely hate the way it looks. The previous exhaust was so short that it kept the bike very "Airy". Now I feel like I have a damn trailer on the back. As of this moment I am pretty sure I am going back to my previous setup cause I just cant get over the aesthetics of it. If for some odd ball reason I decide to keep the Thunder on then I will cut off the collector and kick it up at a 30-45 Degree angle, parallel with the rear triangle of the frame.
