  1. Look what BEAUTIFUL curves showed up at my house today! Box and contents arrived immaculate... thank you for taking such good care packing up my 5th gen goodies. I think these will become family heirlooms to be cherished by my descendants for generations! Lance and Darryl you guys ROCK!!!
  2. Thanks for checking. I might just swap in a 6th gen cushion and get rear sets and quick shifter in the process
  3. Hey Seb, I know it is for 6th gens but my 5th gen mid-pipe doesn’t have a stop. What does it mount to and could I use it on a 5th gen? Russ
  4. Yeah, with the active noise canceling I couldn’t hear the engine. I would have to look at the tach to see if it was running. I thumbed the starter button on a few different occasions thinking the engine was off. My ear buds did a great job canceling engine noise... too good a job in my opinion. I need that engine feedback when I’m carving twisties to know where I’m at in the power band. I wish they were able to cancel wind noise as well but they don’t. They aren’t able to produce all the out of phase frequencies to effectively cancel out wind noise. Now I wear my custom molded earplugs I got at TMAC and get the best of both worlds. I hear everything I want to hear but appropriately attenuated to protect what hearing I have left.
  5. I have used active noise canceling with Audio Technica ear buds. Very highly rated and well reviewed piece of kit. They worked well on planes... as matter of fact, I could hear the bench seats creaking as they were expose to increasing loads during take offs and I could hear peoples conversations two rows away. Unfortunately, canceling wind noise is a tricky business and and there is a background whoosh as the electronics try to compensate and cancel. You end up trading one noise for another. My hearing loss is substantial from loud radios, concerts, about 100k miles of riding without protection, and 23 years in manufacturing... I have significant “ringing” in my ears after riding with active noise canceling. Mine sound more like cicadas than crickets ( a simultaneous confluence of 13 & 17 year periods)! ... and you lose the glorious whine of a 5th gen engine singing its high notes!
  6. Thank you for all you & Duc2V4 have done!!! Most people will never realize the amount of work it took to bring this to fruition. The hours, days, weeks, months, years of effort... like having second job but not getting paid for it! You did what none of us were able to in the past... What you have done is amazing and our community can never thank you enough! I look forward to hearing from you on the 5th gen headers! With my sincere gratitude and respect, Russ
  7. Nice! Just in time for Christmas... ... makes me wish I had a 4th gen!
  8. FedEx emailed that my 8th gens should be here today... so excited!
  9. The front sprocket is interchangeable between 5th & 6th gens. IIRC, the 5th is a 17 teeth front and the 6th is 16 teeth, both bikes have same number of rear sprocket teeth (43t). Switching to the 6th gen front sprocket is common 5th gen mod to give better acceleration because of the gear ratio change. I advise replacing both front and rear sprockets when you install a new chain to get the best results and longest life from the chain.
  10. You are correct, sir... the Rapidbike can use the narrow band OEM sensors with a standard map or the upgrade Autotune with a wideband O2 sensor. Heh, heh, heh... Bung-holio!
  11. 5th gen motors and gear boxes are practically bullet proof. The PO might have changed the gears and not the chain. Go with a new set of chain and gears and you’ll be happy. They are maintenance items and they wear out...
  12. Go with a new chain and sprockets set... especially, if you don’t know how old the current ones are
  13. I’d be surprised if it is not your chain and sprockets. 6th gear low rpms accentuates the issue because of the power pulses from the syncopated firing order engine. That, plus tight and loose sections of chain can give weird sounds. If you hear hoof beats think horses not zebras (unless your in Africa!). How many km on your chain and sprockets?
  14. Some states put a prefix letter on the title ( A=1, B=2, etc.) to indicate how many times the vehicle has been titled. This may give you an idea on how many previous owners.
  15. Sorry, 5.5 gen and 6th gen have two stock O2 sensors... I think 8th gen has one. I apologize if I caused any confusion. The same explanation applies though.
