    So I got my bike.. Everything was fine on the way home. The guy who had owned it before GUTTED the exhaust. He removed the baffles completely in an effort to make it sound more like a harley. He installed LED's and extra chrome.. I needed to adjust the throttle cable a little tighter because...
