  1. I never fail to marvel at the skills demonstrated on this forum.
  2. Thank you so much m8, really appreciate all the work you and Duc are putting into this.
  3. @sfdownhill - do you have any idea when these might start to ship? Not trying to pressure you but I'm just trying to figure when I'm going to fit it and therefore when I need to source the other bits and pieces too.
  4. I'm guessing this bike is more for show than riding.
  5. Interestingly, the RBM (EVO) is cheaper than a PCV; £376 vs £432. So I guess I'll go with the RBM but I may need to ask on here for some assistance setting it all up once I've got the WILD headers and hi-level fitted.
  6. I'm sure you will, but please keep us updated on Darryl's progress and next time you see him, give him our best wishes for a speedy and successful recovery.
  7. Thank you @Mohawk, @ShipFixer, @vfrcapn, @Tirso, much help.
  8. I blame the beers. Of course I meant Iridium 🤦‍♂️
  9. 58 pages! I finally got round to reading every page, but then we are sat on a beach in 33°C / 91°F chillin’ with a few ice cold Changs so what better place to while away the hours! Firstly, thanks doesn’t sound anywhere near enough to Lance and Darryl for continuing to provide the worldwide VFR community with such a fabulous product. Thanks also to all those others who have contributed. Now that I have purchased and refreshed an 01 5th Gen and ridden for a brief few miles before the dreaded winter weather hit, I want to nail down what I plan to do and see if anyone with greater skills and experience than me can forsee any issues with what I’m considering. 1. 5th Gen WILD headers (I like that name), passivated, NGK Titanium spark plugs, currently have new OEM air filter but happy to buy the larger K&N as it looks worth it. Question whether there is a better option than the supplied Delkevic crush washers? Some folk seem to have been having issues. 2. Looking to purchase a high-mount GPR end can/muffler but slightly concerned with the potential fitting issue from the link pipe to the new headers due to differing diameters. I’m not aware of any specialist exhaust folk near me and don’t want to be left with all this beautiful kit lying on the bench because I can’t get 2 pipes to fit. And no, I possess neither the skills nor tools to DIY this. @sfdownhill (or anyone) – what’s the od at the back end of the WILD headers please? I can contact GPR and see what the id of their connector pipe is. 3. PCV or RBM? PCV costs £432, which RBM is likely to be best suited as they don't seem to id which kit for which bike like DJ do? Atm, I'll plan to purchase a PCV, update so it runs with the 01. I’ll try stock map first but then look to pay the $50 for the Attack map. Never tried to tune a bike like this before so am a little nervous about it. Currently discounting the RBM as I think it’s a little overkill for my needs/skills, but does depend on price and skill level required to fit. The bike will only be on the road from April to September, no track days, just ridden to enjoy. 4. O2 sensor set up – question; O2 eliminators on the front 2 sensor holes, PCV sensor on the rear one? Is this the way the PCV should be setup? 2 x O2 eliminators included with PCV. What connections does RBM require? Sorry if most of these points have been covered but with $1500+ more being invested on a bike that has already (willingly) cost me an arm and a leg but one I do not plan to sell, ever, I need to make sure I get it right. Any issues with what I'm planning, what have I missed or simply got wrong? Finally, @sfd/duc2v4 - can you email me when you want the deposit please, I don't check in on this site every day and don't want to mess you around with a delayed payment. Thanks. Cheers.
  10. It looks like it. I'm sure your name will be picked up and added to the list.
  11. To save trawling through 57 pages, could someone please reiterate whether a PC or other such device is required with this? It's been so long I've forgotten. Any other requirements - mounting etc? Many thanks.
  12. The world is flat? Covid was a hoax?! What.....?!?!?

  14. Sadly it's not just volume that kills yr hearing, the range of frequencies and tempo of exposure can really damage hearing as well. You can't always hear that, which is why, if you really want to protect yr hearing into yr old age, you need hearing protection if you ride a bike regularly. My Shoei is supposed to be very quiet, but on the odd occasion I don't put the ear plugs in the noise is surprisingly loud. I've stood on the flight deck of a US carrier (2 actually) during flight ops and the noise is immense. Also tried to sleep below the cat 🤣 no chance. My job didn't help but I've managed to only lose a small portion of higher frequencies so not too bad at the moment. Staintunes are awesome, but then so is the DAM. But earplugs are a must for me. YMMV
  15. What climate change? Due to reach 41/42 tomorrow.
  16. Left it in the garage and took the car to work Forecast was for 39 deg C / 102 deg F and that is no fun on a bike.
