Default Nice Bike

Very nice 8 ball, you have some nice detail there. I'd love to try Apes on mine as well.

I'm new to motorcycling . What is the benefit of wrapping your pipes. Sorry for the dumb question.

It is supposed to help the velocity of the exhaust gasses by keeping them hotter longer.

Also wrapping the exhaust headers prevents high heat from being blasted over the engine fins. You don't want to blast hot ait at your air cooled engine (or any engine for that matter), since cooler engines are stronger and live longer.

Please add your bike's year and model to your signature. Here's why.

Thanks for the responses. I do love the Zoomies, good sound, good look.

The bike is almost a completed work...sort of. I need to finish the front forks (probably going with covers from WitchDoctor), and I DEFINITELY want to replace the seat. I have thought about swapping the rear fender as well, maybe putting on a fender like the one on the boardwalk. Sure it will take some work, but I think that would look great.
