Yeah, Paint it High vis chartruse with pink stripes.

................ Or ................


Wire a Stebel horn up and use a toggle switch so you can leave it blaring full time while you ride.

Get a set of Jardine Rumblers or Cobra slip-on's you will be loud and the bike will sound great. I have Jardine's and I love them. I saw a used set on Ebay last week for $100.00

x2 for cliffhusn!

I have Jardines on my bike and LOVE the sound! I don't want to marble my carbs because I love the loud backfiring sound too much haha

Plus I think two pipes on one side gives the bike a meaner look.
