Got some stuff done today!

Finally got some free time and money to address some of the issues with my V, as well as to install some aftermarket bits.

First, my clutch cable was tight and desperately in need of lubrication, and secondly, the previous owner snapped the clutch lever off in a drop, and filed it smooth. This shorty lever has been giving me hell since day one.

Secondly, the stock exhaust is dreadfully silent in comparison with my ER6N, and its Leo Vince. So I purchased an Arrow can off of another member (outdoorvtguy) and installed it.

Overall, the bike now feels much newer, and has a lot more grunt. I can't wait to get out tomorrow (weather permitting) and give her a test ride.

That exhaust looks nice! How about a video so we can hear what it sounds like.
