Default I'm back!

With the best bike I've had the pleasure to ride. Loved my 01 that I picked up with 4k miles years ago. Beat on it hard, clutch less shifts constantly. I didn't know what false neutral was until I bought a GSXR 750. On paper a great bike, but I was not very impressed with it's ability to take a beating. Sure, it was faster, but then was when I learned of false neutral. It just couldn't take the beating that my Honda took!
So, here I am with a new to me 02 F4i. 2400 miles, stock motor, not even a pipe! She has frame sliders (which have worked well, one is a bit scuffed up, a low speed low side I'm sure. Fairings untouched.) And the the tank bra (I don't like the look, but time will tell if it has function.)
A pipe to come, Loud pipes save lives! I'm leaning toward the voodoo pipe. I'm still in the air about a PC. The 01 had an Erion pipe when I bought it. And I bought a PC3 and loaded the map for that pipe (I didn't notice any change, I didn't dyno tune though.)

That style and color is the reason I always wanted an F4i.
Forget a PC3 unless it makes you feel cooler. Otherwise just install the slip on and enjoy.

I don't even know what the stock bike sounds like.

Thanks! I'll have to get a sound clip before I install the pipe!

Invest in mods that allow you to use the stock form, better tires, suspension, seat, grips.
All the performance mods can only be useful when you can be comfortable to use existing performance.
