I added Jardine exhaust! Got it off Craigslist! I learned that you have to replace the gaskets! I had a lot of noise before I did! Did a 600 mile run over the weekend up and down the Mississippi on the Illinois and Iowa side. Bike ran great and sounds pretty good! I ran the Rotella T-6 and got much better results than Valvoline 10W-40 Motorcycle oil that stuff breaks down quick and the oil pressure drops! Here is a pic. My bike is filthy now gonna give it a bath!

I get stopped a lot by bikers asking about my wing! Funny thing is that 75% of them are on Harleys and 25% on Goldwings or other older Japanese bikes!

There is a subset of Harley riders that like anything vintage. They do seem to like old wings.
