The kit arrived today. Couldn't wait till the weekend, so I installed the kit this afternoon.
Working at an easy pace, it took approx. 3 hours to fit.

The instructions are easy to follow. At first when I flicked through the instructions, I thought phaaaark, there is a lot of pages here. It's going to take forever to fit this kit. But its not that bad.
The only hiccup I had was at the tail end with the software. I couldn't get it to install on both Vista laptops, or on the Windows 7 laptop. So I went to the powercommander website and downloaded the software, and installed it with no problems on one of the Vista laptops.

I haven't ridden her yet. The test ride is tommorrow morning.

John

I went for a ride this morning. I love it.
The first thing I noticed was the sound of the system coming out from under the front of the tank. Not sure if it sounds louder because I have the fairing and it is echoeing out of there, but it sounds awesome when you give it a fistful of throttle. Here is a small sound clip I made while going around the block. The sound from under the tank drownds out the sound of the Termis.
I would like to hear my bike screaming past me with someone else riding it. *Note - The voice recorder was shoved in my glove, so there is some wind noise)

I am glad I had a full face helmet with a tinted visor, because I had this stupid grin on my face the whole ride.....and I still have it now.
Once the engine was warm I gave it handfuls of throttle on take off and when coming out of corners. You instantly feel the difference. The front wheel just wants to come up so easily, and you can feel the rear end wanting to break away when powering out of the corners.
To anyone thinking about buying this kit.....Just do it.......after you have spent money on the exhaust, suspension and tyres.
Thanks Greg for the time and effort to make this kit, and for the professional quality of the whole kit.

John
