    My mind is blown! That's super cool tech! All this motorcycle innovation is a whole new world for me. Awesome.

    be careful to check with legality of what you do in germany. they're pretty strict on mods i believe.

    there's better emulators than gold valves around, depends how much you want to spend. hagon are better dollar for dollar than ikon these days.

    A great product from traxxion is their damper rod with a cartridge valve attached.

    If i was building a bike with stock forks i would consider getting in line for one of these.

    I believe that in Germany you are very limited in what changes you can make without having legal problems. Changes to disks and pads unlikely to be an issue. Rebuilding your forks and fitting emulators from MikesXS.com - who's to know they are in there. Exhaust designed for a different bike - probably not a good idea if you don't like attention.

    It would be a good idea to check your local laws and avoid any changes that are likely to get you and the bike into trouble. You might be lucky that your bike is older than the rules and might slip past, but check.

    I was just reading that there is a new noise law (2017) that affects bikes over 175cc. Couldn't see anything about stock configuration or emissions.

    Where did you read it? I’ll check it out. I work with a guy who’s buddy owns a shop, so I’m going to try to pick his brain on regs regarding mods. Only issue is he speaks zero English. Good chance for me to work on my Deutsch I guess

    This is a video of the bike running, just before I disconnected the battery.

    Is it just me or does that sound like piston slap?
