Really enjoying my new Cobra Swept exhaust. They sound amazing and are killer looking. Everyone stares at them. I left the baffles in them so they don’t sound as good as my Rineharts but I’ll take the performance and looks any day!

They look great! I made a baffle vs non baffle video and posted it in the video section. I wonder how yours compare to mine in terms of sound.

I’m not sure. It is still louder then a lot of guys bikes are with baffles. I’d love to remove the baffles but don’t think I can with them installed on the bike. I want to find some torque cones to put in it if that’s even possible!

Recharged my clean spare set of K&N Cone Filters and R&R'd as required for the Churchkey V-BAK Kit.
Also, Inspected Left Hand Front and Rear Iridium Spark Plugs for wear.

FYI ... Yamaha uses a LH thread for the RH mirror for safety purpose. If you hit an obstruction with your mirror it will come loose instead of knocking the handle bar from your grip.
It's very handy in CA where lane splitting is legal :D ... it's been tested more than once on my ride.

I didnt know that. Explains all the cross threaded problems people seem to have

About to pull the trigger on some hard bags so I threw the old homemade tip I had back on to clear up some room as the previous slip on came to far high and back. Hopefully one day I’ll find an amazing deal on a full exhaust system. Lol

Anyone with hard bags have words of advice? Right now I’m planning on getting some extra large Viking lamellar hardbags. Won’t be taking them off so not sure if the easy brackets are worth it. Any feedback is appreciated!

Installed the hefty 33 tooth pulley. Didnt realize I didn't have these socket sizes. Easy job thanks to this forum. Only had a hard time getting the tracking right. Cant wait to ride it tomorrow.

I finally got around to installing the PCV on my Spiked Warrior. Now I have to find a good map until I install the Autotune. It already runs much cooler with my old map from my '04 with V&H Big Shots. It has the Yamaha Speed Star 2-1-2 Gen II on it right now, so I will try importing ArizonaWarriors old PC3 map and a couple others and see what feels best.

Check bulbs and sockets first!
So after pulling wires out , I found nothing wrong with the driving lights put them all back together and they both work, I pulled the rear fender to get a better look at the wires, had the left and right crossed,and the left bulb was bad,so I ordered some new bulbs, the front run/ turns seem to have a bad ground. So when I get the new bulbs in the morning, I should be able to get her buttoned up. Then i think all I need is a new map and she's ready to rumble.

I agree with you on the annoyance. This is my 3rd set of seals I'm getting ready to replace in 5 years on my Warrior. On my sportbike I replaced 1 set in 14 years!

If you are replacing seals that often make sure that the forks are clean and not beginning to pit or the chrome scared up. If the chrome looks bad then it will tear up the seals. They should be lasting way longer than that.
