Enjoy new bike day. Shame about the weather. It was like this when I picked the Multi up new.

It must be a thing, it came down like stair rods the day I picked up my first 675, riding on brand new Pirelli Supercorsas on flooded roads was a bundle of fun on a strange bike. (doh)

I've got the bike. The weather is awful so I've come straight home and put the bike away. 21 inch front wheel with a new tyre on wet roads is no fun unless you're an off roader or a madman.

Decent ride home. I love the sound, it's like a big bomber when it's coasting along. I found a bridge to ride under on the way back, we all know what I did :D

I need to get used to the height and weight distribution. The Versys weight is lower and sit more in the bike. That adjustment shouldn't take too long.

That screen makes a HUUUGE difference to the whole front-end aspect of the bike.

If you are happy to do it then no worries, but if you think you may ever wanna go back to stock just something to check out and bare in mind.

I have had several scorpion cans and never had to modify in anyway, only thing i done was fitted them! SO not sure where you bought yours from!

Got mine from Scorpion Direct, Ive had to do it now on both an MT09 and an SV650, both in the instructions specified cutting, on the MT is coz the exhaust is all one unit from the headers down, not sure why on the SV
Remember: If in Doubt use Full Throttle, It may not make the situation any better, But it will end the suspense...
