Thanks, ive got the fender eliminator kit from Chris Reese on ebay also read about him here in the forums $75 with front DRL LED, OES kit was directly from oes webpage
 
Decals where from a ebay user cdggraphics at $18 there are a lot of options, ive got this and they like me, but i bet there are some better ones and will replace them when they start to look old.

I just installed that exact exhaust. Follow the written directions closely, and you will do just fine. There are two YouTube videos that incorrectly mount the plate to the muffler before mounting the plate to the frame. This results in the installer having to fight two torturous nut and bolt attachments rather than one. I used a pair of needle nose pliers to get the bolt started for the muffler/plate attachment.
 
Total install time: 90 minutes.
 
Don't forget to wipe the whole exhaust down with 91% isopropyl alcohol when you finish, prior to starting the bike. The oils from your hands will mar the exhaust finish if you don't!
 
Wait until you see just how hideous the stock exhaust is...
 
The Yoshi sounds like a beast. I kept the db reducer in. Its too loud without it. This is how the bike was meant to sound, IMHO.

@mike6116, when you get the Yoshi exhaust, do yourself a favor and download the pdf for the akrapovic titanium installation.

The Yoshi installation guide is greatly lacking. The Akra pdf has torque values and nice pictures. Also do yourself a favor and tape up the heel guard edges with electrical tape. Some type of rubber or plastic tape, not paper tape like masking tape. Failing that, you probably should just remove the heel guard completely before loosening the foot rest bolts.

The Yoshi exhaust with the DB killer in is music!

The Akra instructions have the wrong torque value for the header stud nuts. They say 16 ft lbs vs the shop manual's 14 ft lbs. Just an FYI.

Thanks, good to know.  One of these days I'll pick up the shop manual.

Well, i have just put arround 20 miles since yoshi install, very bad weather here, lots of rain these days, it seems this weekend will be bright sunny, so will take her for a ride.
 
I like very much the golden finish pipes have turned on, they just turn gold on less than 5 miles riding.
