Hey Ozzie, I fitted a new clutch spring with judges washers and fitted my Cobra Longshots last weekend. I must say that I thought the pipes were to loud but am warming to the noise level now.
I've definitely noticed that there is more response n grunt than from stock setup. The engine certainly revs more freely where as before I noticed that it felt like it was Erving hard up around 3-4000 rpms.
I've got a post in engine mods and will add pics soon.

ooo-ee ... OK. Well take it easy then.
And you will NOT ride to Wollongong.
You will let me know when you are ready to go and we will ride out to Kangaroo Valley. Have you been there on the bike? Riding heaven in my opinion.
