Hello 70nova,

Glad to hear that you are having fun! I love the XG500. Wake it up with a Bassani. Mine gets attention and it is fun to twist the throttle. There are a few different options and everyone has an opinion. It will never sound like a big bike but it growls makes it meaner.

Hello from Tallahassee, Florida, and welcome to the forum. You may want to get some better mirrors as well. Regarding the sewing machine muff it came with, ditch that and get some sound so you can be heard as well. Ride safe.

Welcome to the forum! Mirrors and exhaust sound would seem to be the two biggest complaints people have about these bikes.

I bought some new mirrors seem like they will work,got a rear rack and a bar ,had to put the quick disconnect on it found bolts on rear fender are red loctited in ,it looked like someone tried to get it off before and stripped the head,the up right was welded wrong so the pad wont go on,but the mirrors went on lol

A number of bikes came from the factory with red Loctite instead of blue. Lots of stripped bolt heads due to that. what year is it?
