Nice sound with decent numbers.
Best part is no cloud of smoke.

Congrats, Mike.
Now that you've come this far with it, how are you feeling about it all ?

It's been lots of work and taken way too long. I could have paid someone to fabricate it and would most likely cost less. That being said, every time I walk past the old girl, I really like the way it looks, sounds and can't wait to ride it next spring!!

So, Mike, what are you going to do with the CBR-XX mufflers? I have a scuffed pair on the Blackbird, and would be interested in buying them.

Thanks guys, Rick the right side Blackbird muffler has a pretty decent sized ding and the slip on portion at the front of the mufflers have been cut off.

Oh well. It was worth a shot.

I really like the look of the XX mufflers on the X. Almost as much as the new set-up.

Looks very cool, Mike.
I see the stock airbox, What did you do about jetting with your pipes?

The pipes look very nice, and that flyscreen is a cool touch, too. You have me thinking now about if my bike needs one.

Mike the bike looks fantastic, you have the patience of a Saint to have finally dialed in the exhaust, well worth your effort.

The ZRX running gear is great looking, I 'm looking forward to your overall review of the bike once you put it through its paces.

Thanks for the pictures,
Jeff

One of the coolest CBX builds I've seen in a while. That exhaust was truly a labor of love. Mike, do you think you could get a video of a fly-by of the bike in motion, on the boil? I want to hear those pipes howl in anger.
