Can't get used to the Rev limiter. Just new to me. Maybe once I get the 16SE pipes I will be more aware of the revs, but I'm still surprised that I've hit it as often as I have. Hit it in both 1st AND 2nd today in the course of the same acceleration. Going up a 10-15% grade, with a passenger on the back.

DJW,

I ride less aggressive with the SE 16 gauges installed and I am probably at a much lower average RPM level when accellerating with these pipes probably because they tend to let you (and others...) know that you are really accelerating fast. I used to ride at much higher rev's (and have occasionally hit the limiter) with the stock pipes because I wanted to hear the engine - now this is a non-issue...
