I found a good aftermarket top triple clamp on e-bay which made it easier to mount my bars to. As much as I liked the look of the clip-ons I will take the MX style bars and comfort any day. I used some adjustable universal bar clamps and some pro taper bars that I had. I also mounted a Koso RX-2N GP multifunction meter to the top clamp.

Finally got around to the exhaust system. I am using several stock YFZ450 and CRF450 stainless pipes as donors for my bends. I decided to run the rear pipe down through the swingarm, under the linkage, back up around the swingarm through the frame, into a Y and into the muffler. Easy enough right???? Well tacked it up and have 2 slip joints so it can al fit together. Just need to make the front pipe so it is equal length to the rear.
