That's basically exactly what I'm getting - by "mid-pipe and can" I meant replacing it, and I'm planning on going with the Graves since they've already got all the mapping and everything sorted out. Canfield and I chatted about that a bit, and that's the recommendation of the guys helping me put it together.

Welcome, Honey Badger! Fellow BARFer here although I mostly just lurk on BARF. This place is WAY different. I want you to feel at home though, so here...

Congratulations on the new bike and the sponsors. I'd love to head out to Sears Point or THill to watch some races next year.

Have a wheelie nice day!

Winter sucks.

You should, and stop by the pits and say hi!

At this point, not doing a ton to it - ECU flash to put on autoblip; Graves exhaust; bodywork, clip-ons, rear sets, gearing change; levers; relocated the R/R; swap the battery - pretty much just the basics to get it race ready. Once I'm riding it and start to get something that resembles some pace, then I'll worry about tweaking other things and dialing things in a bit more. Not even going to muck with the suspension yet other than a baseline set up.

Went to go see the bike and talk to the guys last week, now we're just waiting on me to start buying stuff LOL! I have some money ready to spend, but wanting to finish up the surgeries on my leg before I spend it on bike parts....so hopefully in a couple weeks will be making the first purchases.









That, and I want to be involved in putting it together as well, which will be easier once I'm done getting my leg put back together LOL.

Thanks. Doing everything in my power to help make that happen, after that it's up to time and my body, but making sure I'm doing all I can to help that happen. When I broke my arm, I was back at the track 4 1/2 weeks after getting it plated. I'm doing more and being more aggressive about things for this injury (supplements, staying active, maintaining the fitness I can maintain, etc) to speed things along for this one since it's far more complicated being a weight bearing limb.
