Straight Headers....


So I headed over to the BA Moto headquarters and pulled the mufflers off last weekend. I was stoked to find a group of younger guys in So Cal that have the same love for British iron, loud machines and general mayhem as I do. The guys at BA Moto really have a good thing going on with bike nights @ the Pike in Long Beach, and they also organize some badass rides. . I wish I could get down on their upcoming ride...Long Beach to Yellowstone and back (about 2,700 miles). You can keep up with them here; ba-moto.com

After kicking tires for a while and just hanging out, head wrench Jamie helped me out with a rejet. All is good except with the new set-up except I still have some of the emissions sh!t on there. It kind of burps and spits at the moment but should be an easy fix. I really dig the sound.

I haven't found my perfect exhaust solution so for the meantime, header tape....and running wide open. Who knows...it might even stick.

  1. hey, great job with your Bonnie!

    would you mind making a post with the specific parts you used to Thruxtonize your bike?

    which seat? what cowl? what bars, etc?

    that'd be sweet.

    cheers,

    J
