Nice!  Looks like you lowered your seat down a little bit.  Looks good.

HAHA. Jersey is great.  I live near the pine barrens, so my rides consist of long woodsy roads and cranberry bogs.  But, if i so choose i can take a scenic ocean ride through Seaside Heights all the way up the island!

Yes, i did lower the seat.  I kind of wish i left it a tad higher though im 6'2''.

I just got the performance TCI and it made the bike a bit more responsive.  I had to WOT out of a shitty situation with two cars almost hitting me and i really felt the difference there. 
Its a totally different bike then when i first bought it.  no baffle no pav.  TM-32 and performance TCI.  I am going to get the 19t sprocket soonish.  I cant wait till she blows and i replace it with a 535!

Also i want to get a velocity stack and take the muffler off.  Your thoughts?

If you run without a muffler we can't be friends.  JK.  Kind of.    :-\

If you want a loud exhaust get an aftermarket EMGO muffler, or something similar, and just run it without a baffle.  Running a bike with just a pipe and no muffler is actually bad for the motor.  It takes away all of the exhaust scavenging and causes the bike to run like crap and eventually burn out your valves.  There is absolutely NO benefit to running without a muffler on a basically stock motor, only harm to your motor and ears.

Like Scottie said, your motor will be happier with a little back pressure.

I'll trade you riding weather. -14F at my house this morning, drove through a spot that was -25F. Predicted to be colder tomorrow morning. I've got a new TM-32 and jetting to put on my 08'Electra, but I may chicken out on doing some shop time. On the positive side the weather tends to keep the rif-raf out of Montana. Please send more pictures of fair weather!

Sounds like the south jersey winter is ten time more bearable.   changing the mikarb to the TM32 was easier than the college girls around here lol.  It took about half an hour.  idk if youll have to jet differently because of altitude, but if you search around the forum i have posted my jetting specs in a couple places.  I think my bike is perfectly jetted, no backfires no bogging down.  my electra runs like a top.

South Jersey is actually kinda nice...Pretty much flat but the area is conducive to some open bike riding on the back roads towards Cape May county, etc...It's like night and day between North and South...You just have to be on the lookout for the Jersey Devil at night in the Pine Barrens..
Oh Magoo you done it again

I love the area,  im actually 20 minutes away from the MTV famous seaside boardwalk.  I've never been to a club, though.  I got into the woods with my truck on occasion its really spooky at night time, no jersey devil sightings yet though.

Oh Tom Rivers and Lakehurst (Hindenburg Zep) area...That was something else that fire that wiped out the boardwalk at seaside heights....You're just far away from the summer tourist out on that side of the causeway....The devil isn't in a hurry. He's just waiting for the right moment....
