I also have the same bike and I have been wondering about which exhaust to get. Do you have any regrets about losing the black? I think the black makes it look pretty bad ass...Got a new set of Vance and Hines pipes today, and oh my God they're loud Sure do look pretty though
The debadging was fairly easy. I just warmed it up for a while with my wife's hairdryer and then used dental floss to seperate the badge from the tank. The floss kept breaking so it's best to fold a strip over a couple of times to give it some strength.How tough was the debadging? Would love to hear your process as I have been considering this as well.
