General Board / Re: Where is the VIN ?
« Last post by injuhneer on July 06, 2020, 09:37:17 PM »
Arizona will issue a "VIN" generated by the state. It is a secondary number affixed to the frame.

I am a law-abiding citizen. I try not to circumvent things that are inconvenient. And this made more difficult by the fact that I have the tools to correct this numbering problem before it is inspected again.

I am just stuck in that time-frame between the VIN on a tag vs VIN on the frame itself.

In my case the limiter worked. It stopped the engine from over-revving in the moments before I hit the kill switch.

TechTalk / Re: Transmission mods?

I also have been studying the transmission diagrams in the service manual. What would really help is a different top gear. Or both 4th and 5th. I may be forced to crack open the engine of the "parts bike" that came with my XZ to have a look and take measurements.

What has been the experience of those who have ridden the Euro/Aus gears vs the American ratio?

I went to the Marving sight and there was no photo of them.  Can you post a link to where there is a photo?

I finally found my VIN photos that my insurance company insisted on before they could agree the bike existed. It is where we agreed it is and if you don't have JYA preceding the SN, good luck.

I looked, it said EUR 446.89.
Anyway I don't love them so much visually

Have you considered the Italian Marving? I just now looked at their site and they have what looks like a mufflers only set for a sale price of 305 euro.

I believe you are correct Rohan, I was fooled by the photo layout. I like having the exhaust exit left and right so I'll just keep my Spec IIs.
I like the Spec IIs. 
I have a set I imported from USA for the super-mod.  Got them ceramic coated at huge expense but they pitted so much during blasting that they look awful.  Ended up with a very nice "For Competition Only" Predator 4-1 from the UK though.

All yours Walt.  It looks to me exactly like a "Mac Performance" exhaust, perhaps Bassani on-sold them but they look nothing like the typical Bassani tapered megaphone.  Not that I have anything against Macs, they are much lighter, and sound better than stock - just not for this build which I'm looking to be as factory at possible.


I'll PM about pricing for the 2a exhaust and heatshield.
