    I'd put a longer exhaust on it, some market it as the poo poo pipe

    When I added one to my Point Beach I think it made the bike. Gave it more of a motorcycle look. I believe there is a pic of it here. Just remember to secure it well at all points! The flange you mount the muffler to is very thin. I found that out the hard way.

    That's a fantastic looking bike Moto !.....does the poo-poo pipe make it more quiet ? and does it help performance ?

    Thanks,

    It made it a bit quieter, just a different sound really. And yes, more power I think... it did seem to pull stronger on hills, why I don't know. BUT at the same time I changed plug and the plug cap and wire too so it might have been a combination of all four. Still I think it was well worth the money.

    Where did you pick up the springer Salty? I'm new to the mb scene but really want the look of a springer. Also how much trouble is it to put on?
    Thanks
