Two Brothers M-2 VALE Silver Series Slip-On Exhaust Honda CBR 500R / CB 500F / CB 500 X The all-new Silver Series exhaust is the latest state-of-the-art product from Two Brothers Racing. The new exhaust features carbon fiber highlighted by a natural finished Aluminum inlet and outlet. Its new badge design and famous Two Brothers Racing black Teflon coated magnesium end cap gives it a clean, polished look. With the new Silver Series exhaust, Two Brothers Racing has upped the ante again. All of the carbon exhaust are made with a high temp aerospace grade epoxy resin. The carbon fabric is made with a 33 million modulus carbon tow then impregnated with the high temperature resin under very tight tolerances. This allows Two Brothers to make sure that the fabric is impregnated with the exact resin content every time. Then each exhaust is place in an autoclave to cure under full vacuum. The autoclave also removes any volatiles and air from the carbon fiber. The Silver Series exhaust system comes in your choice of aerospace grade Carbon Fiber or 6061 T-6 grade aluminum. The entire line of TBR M Series canisters feature the same high level of quality construction and are designed to be fully serviceable in the event of damage, routine maintenance or the occasional repack. Two Brothers Racing's V.A.L.E. slip-on exhaust systems and flange-on systems feature CNC'ed aluminum inlets. These special designs provide for ease of maintenance as well as simplified construction, which is what a premium performance product is all about! The exhaust note produced by all of their Top Level exhaust systems is best described as being deep and throaty without suffering from the shrill whine normally associated with other manufacturer's straight through muffler canisters. V.A.L.E. V ariable A xis L ocking E xhaust. The V.A.L.E. system is TBR's revolutionary and patented method of attaching their muffler canisters to the exhaust tube without the use of springs or welding. Their V.A.L.E. systems allow the muffler assembly - exhaust tube and canister - to be positioned perfectly on the bike before all the mounting hardware is fully tightened. Once the canister and exhaust tubes are properly aligned, the V.A.L.E. assembly locks the muffler canister to the exhaust tube assuring a perfect, leak-free fit. Note Image of installed exhaust is for reference only. Note This exhaust is CARB compliant. Please check local laws before purchasing a Two Brothers Exhaust . Some modifications may be prohibited in some states.

The hardest part about installing this exhaust was taking the existing one off. Once the stock exhaust was off, it was EXTEMELY easy to install this slip-on. I chose the carbon fiber version and am very happy with the overall look/finish. The sound is much louder, but not deafening. It has a very satisfying low, throaty rumble. While accelerating, the sound really kicks in at about 4k RPMs. When decelerating, it has a nice pop to it. As far as performance goes, I haven't really noticed a big difference, but so far, I haven't really opened it up too much either. Overall, I am completely satisfied with this purchase as far as sound, quality, and looks go.

Yoshimura Chassis Protector Kit Honda CB500F / CB500X Yoshimura Chassis Protectors help minimize damage from sliding type falls, can save you hundreds of dollars in repairs, and maybe keep you from getting a DNF on race day. The plastic construction is soft enough to slow slides and wear down slowly... yet tough enough to keep the track away from your bike in most cases. These Chassis Protectors are specifically engineered for the Ninja 300. Brackets are bolted to key structural areas behind the fairing, tieing into the upper and lower engine mounts. These provided stout mounting positions for the chassis protectors through the fairings. Features Sold as a Pair Welded, powder-coated mounting brackets Laser-etched Yoshimura logo on Inner Sleeve Works Edition features a hard-anodized base with superior colorfast qualities and is highly resistant to Ultraviolet rays and heat Includes necessary hardware and detailed installation instructions

I just finished installation and it was very easy. there are only four parts and they fit together a very specific way so it would be hard to do it incorrectly. As far as looks, these sliders are very appealing. I did notice that they do not protrude further than the handlebars, as well as, the thickest point on the gas tank. It does, however, protrude further than the main parts of the engine and the exhaust pipe. The material seems very strong, and has a great finish. For obvious reasons, I didn't put the bike on its side to test functionality, but judging by the looks of them, they will definitely protect the bike if it were ever dropped.

Originally, I read some reviews and heard that this shoe runs narrow, so I ordered a half size bigger than what I normally wear. I ended up having to revert back to my normal size because they didn't run as narrow as I thought they would; however, they do run a little bit narrow but not so much so that it's uncomfortable. Other than that, these are very comfortable and very lightweight. I just ride to commute so these are perfect for what I was looking for. They feel and look great in a pair of jeans, and still provide that little extra as far as safety goes that normal shoes do not.

Off the bat, this this jacket is very comfortable. I'm pretty short and small so I wear a size small, my build is athletic in the arms, so the shoulders are a little bit tight when moving my arms forward and backward. My bust is average, 34b and it is very comfortable and well fitted in the upper torso area. It is perfect for warmer temperatures, it breathes nicely throughout the entire jacket. Depending on your tolerance for cold temperatures, this probably will work up until mid fall.
