I love the look of that AR can. Which one is that? Does it make a big difference in the sound?

It is here: http://www.austinracing.com/2013-2017-s ... ip-on.html
It made a lot of difference to my ears--noticeably louder but excellent. It's slightly too loud for my taste at idle but settles into a nice authoritative growl when riding.

You have forgotten the best mod-rearsets-the best thing to do on this bike.

Taking away 10+ pounds of rotational wheel weight is significant for handling dynamics. Turn-in, braking and acceleration all quicken noticeably. In essence, the bike is more nimble and I love the feeling. It is the perfect mod for my type of mountain riding. :)

I think 'the best thing to do on this bike' is determined by each owner. Light-weight wheels do it for me. 8-)

FYI: A Ballistic Lithium Iron Phosphate battery saved 6.75 pounds high up on my '17 SDR and left room in the battery compartment for other electronics. It came with the proper Optimate Lithium Battery Charger and a Ballistic on-bike charging cable with battery condition monitor.

Your bike looks so much better with black wheels!
Now you need my black wheels for backup, and I'll gladly accept your orange ones.

I am helping a friend sell a bike, and it will need a battery. I will put mine in his bike, and planned on getting a Shori, but the charger included sounds sweet.

As you might know, there are different types/qualities of Lithium batteries and some are better than others for function and safety (overcharging/undercharging, overheating, spontaneous combustion, etc.). Some are Lithium Ion. Some are Lithium Iron Phosphate and so forth. Charging requirements differ also. ;)

My battery monitor/charging port fit nicely within the rear frame tubes and is easily read and accessed there.

Mirrors really work well with a great field of view and zero vibrations. They don't even prove to be an issue when filtering (lane splitting) as they only add a couple of inches to the bars but they are easily folded if things ever got really tight. I'd say they were one of the best mods I've done to the bike and in my opinion they look great :)

They look good. I'm looking at possible replacement mirrors too. ;)

Here's mine on my 2015, ZERO vibration or glare, they're tinted blue. Please excuse the brake fluid bleed bottle...

This is exactly what I have on my 15, and where I got it from, but they have others, with and without tint. I didn't think I'd like the tint, and I am pleasantly surprised it does a great job, eliminating glare from direct sunlight, allowing you to still watch for Smokey bear creep up on your six.
