Moving the R/R to the open air helps it keep cool. It is mounted under the battery and above the Goat Belly, not a good place, moving it to the open and aiding the cooling will help it last longer and the Stator also.

The MCCT is a Manual Cam Chain Tensioner, that is to replace the ACCT which get weak, Keeps the Cam chain quiet.

Put in a maintenance-free battery (goes along with the r/r relo) and lube your final drive splines. They're not "performance" oriented in the sense of gaining you more mpg or low-end torgue, but they save ya a lot of trouble down the pike as prevention efforts.

BTW, like the horn relo!!

After market pipes look good. Performance is increased a little. I ride long distances most of the time and the noise level was to much for me. So I went back to stock pipes.
