I saw the thread and thought I might come an introduce myself to some fellow monster riders.
I'm Wayne from the West Coast in Perth and new to the site and thought it would be a nice idea to swap mod ideas and riding advice in general.
Still pretty young, only 21 with a fresh degree in Physics, and have a 2006 620 Monster which is my first bike and I fell in love with the freedom instantly to make it more of a lifestyle than a just Sunday rider.
I also seemed to pick up modding bug (kangaroo forced my hand) and just finishing off painting now, and added some pod filters, bar end mirrors, red aluminum grips, red aluminum handlebar, tail chop and LED Indicators.
Also I decided to core the exhaust and worked on neat solution for it. Basically turning the stock exhaust into a titanium performance exhaust for about $200 and some time (which is nearly done, just have to weld her up).
I was thinking about posting a very detailed how-to when it's all done. Would this be something the community would be interested in?
I found that when looking at coring the exhaust out I just had no idea what the inside would look like and if I had that prior knowledge before hand, it would be so much easier to do.
Because I'll go into every single cut, bang and weld with info on why and how (with pictures)
Anyway bit of long intro, Nice to meet you all.
