My son and I started some mods on his '08 SF yesterday. Here are a few pics, we still have to add the PCIII.

He decided to leave the lowers off while he learns to ride this one.

It was a GREAT father's day! Spending the day in the garage with your son wrenching on bikes is awesome!









The exhaust was a bit too high, but I used a GSXR hanger that I bought somewhere on clearance. We had to open up the mounting holes a bit, because the SV holes were wider spaced. It would have been a bit more difficult with the stock passenger peg, but not much. We were able to push the can/midpipe down enought to get it to bolt up, with no problems.

I knew it. Glad it worked out for you, I'd feel bad otherwise. :)

What's the volume like on the exhaust?
I'm charging up the camera and I'll shoot a bit of video.

It sounds strange to me because I've never had a V twin before.

I'll get a bit of my C14 for comparison.

That's great, and if you could answer me this- and I know it's subjective- Would you feel like a douchebag pulling out of the driveway every day at 7am due to the noise, or can you baby the throttle to keep it reasonable?

I have the same exhaust on my 06 SV650N. Its not loud at all. Nothing like my RS-3 that I had on a previous SV... That thing was loud!

This pipe actually sounds decent. Your neighbors will not hate you.

You can totally be resonable with it, even when I had my 200mm Delkevic, if you baby it, its not that loud.

Did your bike have the oxygen sensor on it? If so what did you do with it?
