WooooHoooo! Got a new set of Arrow cans for the Monster! Found them on Ebay and only paid $350 for the set brand new. They are the CX:Alumilites (the aluminum version of the CX:Carby). From the time I got them unwrapped to the time they were installed was about 20 minutes. And do they look great!

Going to have to get a jet kit and filter though. The bike was a real bear to get started (probably didn't help that it was only 38 degrees) and it popped and farted and ran on one cylinder at first. The choke didn't seem to have the same effect that it normally does (raising the rpm). Even after she was warmed up and running on two cylinders she was still stumbling occasionally. When she was fully warmed up she ran good but just seams a little lean. So I'm going to get the Factory Pro jet kit and a K&N filter and do a little modifying of the airbox.

The Sound! It was intoxicating. A nice deep bass at idle and that beautiful twin (Ducati) wail at rpm. Just wanted to let eveyone know how happy I am! ;D

I took her out and rode her again today. Started much easier than yesterday (it was up to 42 degrees today). I also remembered to take a few pics before I went for a ride so I could put one up. Here she is. ;D
