    Thank you both. I have no further plans for the bike, except to ride and enjoy it! However, at some point I'll have to get the transmission looked at. It pops out of 3rd gear under load. I'll get it looked at in the fall/winter. For now, no worries.

    I have no issues with the noise and enjoy the way it sounds, but to others it probably approaches borderline noise levels. I did get some disapproving looks from an older couple walking in my neighborhood last night. Haha. I dig it - it has a nice classic "brappy" sound to it. I have no plans to do glasspacks. And hey, it passed inspection so it's all good. Right?

    well,i don't like open pipes on anything,because it is often selfish,attention starved assholes that run them .modifying exhaust ? i like it,i do it...open pipes are wrong for public roads if we encourage them and the trend grows ,eventually the do gooders will outlaw any and all mods,see

    Point taken. As a complete amateur in this, I relied completely on the expertise and recommendations of the guys that built the chambers. Also, the shop that inspected the bike has a solid reputation and they didn't have an issue with them. So maybe they're not as bad as I'm portraying.

    Will probably turn out to be a slightly bent shifter fork. Happens sometimes when you crash or stomp it into gear.

    hey maybe there is some silencing in there,'cause open chambers if you rap it up high standing there no earplugs will almost make you puke and will damage hearing what??
