Yeah that's definitely my first addition. Hoping dealer can get it cheap! One thing I didn't notice but assumed based on memory was the CB doesn't have steering damper does it? Is that something needed? I've heard about the rear shock bit and I plan to try that out if it's bugging me, plus seems like you can basically take it to track days if you do that so def worth me looking into. Have people had much success on maps? I've seen the deadzone in the middle and while that doesn't really bother me too much being my first liter bike(that's more sporty), may be something I do in the future.
I think the Honda qs is around €800 in Holland, ex install. If you not going for the Honda, I can recommend translogic. By far the best I think. I had it on my previous bike, never missed a shift. Around the same €, but not standard with a blipper I think. Check the website: www.translogicsystems.com
Yeah I went ahead and got QS, wanted downshift more than anything. I also took off stock exhaust just to see what i could expect out of my slipon, and man that thing is pretty quiet still. Something tells me eventually people will be selling cat exhaust that are somewhere between decat and full cat(4?) eventually since it's such a huge difference between stock and decat exhausts.
I agree on the sound with the cat still on the bike is not a huge step from standard exhaust. I fitted an SC project S1GP slip on on my bike. Started it up and was pretty disappointed at first. Took the dB killer out, and that made a big difference. I wouldn't want it louder, but that's just personal preference I guess. In Holland they are getting really picky on bikes that make a lot of noise, and it will get you in trouble. A ticket for 98dB and above is about €490 I read lately. No thanks. Good choice for de qs with blipper. The Honda qs rides really smooth. Great upgrades
