Awsome pics....those pipes on both bikes look simply 'marvelous'.
I think it'd be even better if they made a form fitting plastic piece that replaced the stock plastic that goes around the pipes. Cover up some of that underseat stuff you can see if you look directly in.
Yea....a better form fitting plastic would be nice around the cannons. I just have to take the time to cut off a little bit of it in the middle. I paid around $770 at FosterRads and have had them for about three months. Kinda pricey but those with undertails unavailable for their bikes get Xtremely jealous. It really carries that MV F4 look quite well.
Darn! One of the reasons I bought the FZ6 is the price! Now, looking at all the mods in these threads that "all you guys" make me wanna do to my baby will put me in the f'kn POORHOUSE!!!! Evil! All of you!!! Evillllll!!!! lol lol :banme :drool
I know...I think the exhaust is my final and only necessary mod that I'll spend some change on. I'm pretty content with just the pipes. I wouldn't mind a lower cowl, but that's all aesthetics. The sound is just 10x's better!
Man, this thread was started awhile ago. Glad people are digging into the archives.
If you're getting the Xtremes, take your time assembling the pipes indoors because that's where most of the time will be spent. Getting the clamps around the pipes without scratching them can be a little tricky. Maybe a layer of grease or petroleum jelly may ease the process. Also, if you don't want the Laser logo showing on the pipes, you can just turn them inside and away from view. Makes it look factory.
Some of the hardware that you need to take out from the bike might be hard to budge. Even harder than the oil filter the factory installed. Be careful not to strip the screws. You might want to use something other than a screwdriver if this is the case. Vise-grips or something similar to grip and turn the head.
I had a friend help me out once I needed to install the finished assembly onto the bike. Those extra set of hands is very helpful in tweaking the pipes into place.
