Just purchased the liquid graphite one week ago and have parts lined up for mods/installs this weekend. Yosh exhaust, PCV, and shorty levers all set to go. More parts expected next week. I've owned many motorcycles, most recently, a DL650. I'm enjoying this nimble, light weight torque machine!

Thanks for the welcome. NorCal616, I know Grass Valley well...I live near Auburn. Are you still up this way? 
Couldn't help myself this morning, so got up at 5am and installed the Yoshimura exhaust. Took about 1 hour. Can't start it yet because it's still too early!
 
I'm going to run this on the seat of the pants dyno for a while to see if adding the exhaust causes a loss in torque or lean stall issue before I unbox and install the Power Commander.

Definitely going to install PCV after my ride into work this morning. A/F needs some tweaking after exhaust install.

Yes! Highway 49 is a nice cruise... I used to live a quick 3 min walk from the Dew Drop Inn off of CA-49...

49 through Cool to Placerville is a fun ride.
 
Just took bike out for test ride after install of PCV with map from Dynojet. Bottom end is back, no more deceleration popping, and throttle response is excellent. Anyone who says that fuel management add on is not necessary with Yosh exhaust is leaving power and ridability on the table!

My family is going on vacation in Ludington this July. My wife's family is from Chicago and would gather in Ludington each summer when she was a kid. Neat spot!
