Ixil exhaust lover here. Great sound, not too loud.

i really wouldn't recommend wearing a motorcross jacket for road riding. The material is not made to withstand a slide on tar. It and you will get ripped to shreds if you go down.

I wear a RST ventilator II Mesh/cordura jacket. It has really good ventilation and CE approved armour in the shoulders, elbows and back. Did i mention it has really good ventilation. It gets really hot here BTW, so that jacket is a god choice.

Thanks Gungnir , ill give that jacket a look up.

I think im going to go with a Yoshimura Exhuast and Yoshimura Fender eliminator. i have a intergrated indicator LED taillight coming . a new rear seat cowl from sacs, i think this will have to do for now since ive only had the bike 2 weeks, Im very interested in getting some black wheels, havent come across any sites yet though. I notice there isnt alot of australian sites for these parts.

Just get your stock wheels powder coated.

That's my plan anyway...pretty reasonably priced too.

Good luck, sounds like you're having fun with your new bike.

Agreed. Anything happens in a motocross jacket and you might as well as be wearing tissue paper.

I don't know how the weather is over there, but here in hot and muggy Texas my Alpinestars T-GP-R Air jacket has served me well for 8 months. Great ventilation and pretty sturdy.

I considered getting integrated indicators before and rang up the Dept of transport. Unfortunately tail lights with integrated indicators violate the ADR, you'll get a defect notice on it for sure (not just in QLD, it's a nationwide standard).
