The process has begun. First installment of new goodies. Before and after photos of V & H VO2 Air Intake-Naked, and Chrome & Black Skull Air Filter Cover(Billet Aluminum)

P.S. those spots under my bike are dried fiberglass resin not oil from my ride.

Modifications to a Street 500:

The rear end looks great. Thats what the wife wants me to do to hers. Family commitments have stopped me so far tho. Have you got any pics of you doing it and can you tell me what model mudguard you used. What seat are you using. Also did you cut much or any of the rear frame. Sorry for all the questions. Bike is great.

Ha no worries, ask away. I took some pictures on the process. We had to cut off most the original rear fender frame. Added a used sporters fender that we buffed out and matched the color. Also, we applied sheet metal to the side of the new fender to hide the new wiring for the lights. As you can see i'm not using the stock lights, got smaller ones and also the obvious license plate to the side. As for the seat, we are using my old Softail Slim S stock seats which we cut down to fit the frame, took some padding off and it fit well. The seat lowered the sitting by about 2 inches ---along with the customized new shocks which lowered it another inch to the ground.

My stock exhaust came with the baffles/silencer removed by previous owner. Now it sounded loud but too loud. I removed the exhaust to changed rusty screws and clamps and painted it again. The exhaust look inside one hollow with perforated holes.

Instead buying a aftermarket exhaust (cost me transport plus duties around usd800) , has anyone buy those aftermarket baffles to install on their stock exhaust , sound louder than stock baffles.

Help appreciated to point me to the right link.

Phase two done.

Viking Lamellar Large Leather Shock Cutout Hard Saddlebags are now installed. These ones are wrapped in leather with a more mate finished look vs the non-leather painted ones that have a very gloss look. I think they look great on and I'm loving the extra storage. Also, the Vance & Hines Fuel Pack 3 is installed.

The mirrors are definitely a safety issue. The sound from the muffler is more personal I think. My motto is to be heard before you are seen. Nowadays most car drivers are not "looking out" for us, so if you can be heard they may notice you.
