went by the dealer to pick up my 07DX, and got a look at my 08 DX that's there for some mods and tuning etc. it's lookin sweet and almost done. :dance: only 1000 miles on it, and it has a 5 yr extended warranty.

they did have an issue tuning it with the new RH 2-1 plus quiet baffle (from v-mod). bike still has a weird bark/chirp at the low end when you hit the throttle. they're going to have to take it back apart but not sure how much they can do with the quiet baffle welded in. i'm starting to regret the baffle. it sounds like total crap right now, i would'nt even ride it around like that.

running well though otherwise, about 110hp/78tq right now. and they've said their dyno is stingy. saw the printout, it looks good. will post the map up in the map files section, after they get it right.

i'll just hope they can work it out, they're pretty good. maybe get it back by thanksgiving.

yup! tested it out already, and it works pretty damn well. i understand why others don't like that feature, but for me it's just peace of mind.

well, he apparently likes the DX. maybe because denim isn't "real" paint

Nice. It looks like the 08 has a few mods already done and too many to count. You've been busy. :)
