    hehe, that chrome Dom. looks pretty good.

    i had to make a better rear mount bracket, there was enough fibe's to snap that little cover bracket i was using . i'll try to get a pic this afternoon.

    silver looks real sharp.

    The full suspension rides are a whole different animal. I had been looking at the blackcomb for awhile it looks like a nice bike for sure. Keep us updated she looks real nice.

    TWalker, the pipes come from Daves Discount Motors and are made especially for this GP460 engine.

    Kawasaki999: So you have one gp460 with a Dom pipe and the others are stock exhaust ... Notice any real difference in speed or mileage? I am going to be ordering my stuff in a few days and am still torn in this department.

    1 with dom, the other 2 have x-cans, motor with dom not broke in yet,but x-cans feel like more low end power and dom seems to have more above 8000 rpm range. I will have a used x-can for sale shortly with baffels and elbows installed for 1/2 price of new. I am going with all dom pipes mosty because they r much quieter that the x-can.

    Much quieter huh? You are not noticing any mileage gain though? What is the difference between an "x-can" and a stock mufler?

    Still on the first gal. Never ran the stock muffler, the x- can is high performance and has 2 exhaust outlets.

    would that be a STINGER on the end of that pipe? How much of a difference do you here with/without? Do you find that it robs low end torque at all?

    the stinger is a lot quieter and does not rob low end ,but it does add to the top end speed. The dominator is kind of doggy until you hit 6000 rpms, then it starts it pull. x-can with x port has more pull down low.

    Hey Kawi, I'm contemplating using my Blackcomb as a GEBE kit platform. Any suggestions/ difficulties in using this particular bike? Not looking for super speed, just a quiet putter to get to work with. I'm thinking the 35cc robin...

    The only thing I would suggest is have the wheel re-spoked to 12 ga spokes.

    wow, santa's a great guy !!

    what's that wild stinger your running now ?

    Steve, the stinger is just a carbonfiber tube jb welded over the copper stinger to make it longer, helps deflect the oil, but made it a little louder. Braking is 60% better now.
