Pretty sweet, if you ask me. But not enough to make me WANT one on my bike... my exhaust sounds cool enough to keep me satisfied.

He just bought the new vented clutch cover to replace his solid cover. It sounded great to begin with so I can't wait to hear it when he vents it.
Question though... when you have a dry clutch and vent it, what happens to clutching if you get caught in the rain and soak it? Ride over til it dries out? Keeps going? Or, did them Italians put in a blow dryer?

Brembo brakes, carbon fiber accents everywhere you could imagine, those exhaust pipes that start with Termag...something (they looked awesome), different rims than stock, Ohlins front forks and rear suspension...man, just thinking about those bikes makes me want one. I do love my Yammy though.

Flats do happen, but it's not enough of a problem to attach magnets or brooms to your bike....
