Are you doing some kind of special effect on this photo? Makes it seem fake, somehow.
Any and all disclaimers may apply

I think Grant puts a color twist on all of his pictures.
At least, that is how it appears to me.
This last photo is not so dramatic, but it looks like it the same.

Gidday fellas,

I run the pic thru an app called "Aviary" on my phone, I make it high res, then I sharpen up the image a lot, nothing to serious really.. :o

Looking nice Grant!
Are the Staintunes off the other bike? I can't remember.
Surely you can't have two pairs of Staintunes? :mrgreen:

Why not, they don't cost any more than the factory pipes. Though mine look rusted where they bend down after the heads. Running too hot with water spraying on them?

Currently $2,100 for new headers and mufflers.

You have staintunes Ed? They can be polished shiny again.

Gidday Jeff,

The headers came off the Blue R100
I brought a grubby pair of staintune mufflers off RG and matched them up which is what you see, polished up great!

I am now in the process of installing the Keihan headers and mufflers onto the Blue bike..
