I removed mine last night and not an easy task as several broke. took the bike for a run this afternoon and I could definitely hear the fins ringing around the 65 to 70 mph mark......and i'm friggin deaf. well maybe not that bad but I could tell the difference anyway.I am now thinking seriously about what I have left - shoving them back in their slots.......yes I said slots! so don't try confusing me!....lol
That engine looks so much better without the paint. How did you get the paint off and the polish so even?
You did all of this with the engine in the frame? I sense another winter project coming on.Thank you!
I removed the sound dampers very early on. I never noticed any difference or notable ringing in about 14k miles. Still, every bike is different.
Yes.I only removed the front plates.
