Default Ok so I got a new website, what do you....

What do you guys want to see available there? What parts do you need on regular basis? Or what parts do you always have trouble finding? Any other suggestions?

Thanks, Steve

MotoWest pipes for the '07 on up bikes.
The FMF pipes are sub-standard in fit and performance.

I tested four pipes back to back same day, same terrain.

1. doma
2. messico
3. motowest
4 fmf

Fit and finish on the messico and doma were equal - both fit well. Fit of FMF was poor and motowest was extremely poor and was returned for refund.

Both fmf and motowest had mid-hit that made for difficult control on tighter sections. Felt fast, but weren't due to lack of smooth power delivery. These were most least favorite pipes to run...

My suggestion would be for Steve to build a pipe based on the doma - lean just slightly more to bottom-mid power (not much) and really heavy duty to survive in Glenn's neck of the woods... In my opinion, this would be "the ticket".

Steve. I.M.O. your Motowest pipe is the best , strongest and best fitting pipe I have had the experiance of using. Its been on one 300 and three 250's and to reiterate what Ive posted in the past I'd buy one in a heartbeat.

I've ran 3 out of those 4 with different results.. but if more low end and thicker pipe to survive the rocks,, I'd like that..

Jeff describes how the the OEM GG pipe works on my '07. I like it so much I have a spare. I did my first real gnarly ride yesterday after a 14 month layoff. Its going to take me awhile to get comfortable and back to speed, but the bike carried me through the crap using more of the low end than usual. You won't do bad building a copy of that pipe, for a better price.

Hey Steve,
I'll second the heavy duty pipe suggestion.

Also FYI I noticed that the link in your member profile here takes me to your "old" site. I had to go find your other thread to get to your "new" site.
