Got my midpipe today :)

Thought I'd share my excitement with everybody. I'm gonna go install it now, but I thought I'd make sure to mention Gearitalia.com. I don't know if anybody else has used them, but I have to say I have no complaints. Well almost. The only thing is they didn't send me a shipping confirmation or tracking number. I probably could have asked for one and they would have sent it. I contacted them a couple times before ordering and they always answered promptly and politely. I barely had time to wish for a shipping confirmation though, as I ordered it monday, and received it today (thursday). Can't argue with that. Anyway I'm off to make some noise for the neighbors.

I'll check them out. Anywho, enjoy the midpipe and don't forget to do the rest of the mod (bmc air filter and power commander or EPROM)

Even though my neighbors hate me, I still get thumbs up while I'm revving the engine on the street.

Time is a delusion. Lunchtime doubly so.

Got a filter on the way, and I'll have to buy a PC soon. Just looked at emoto. Their selection is rediculous, so I suppose I should mention that gearitalia is kind of a small operation. But if you're in the states and they happen to have what you need, don't hesitate to buy. Too bad emoto has such a reputation. Oh well, I'll get by.

I ordered from Pete at Gearitalia in the past and I have to admit, they're probably the best I've ever dealt with, and the prices were lower than every one I checked. Fast response and fast shipping on top of it! Great guys!

Bought my damper from them, http://gearitalia.com/product.asp?ID=1001&C=1&S=2
The deal took more than a month due to late italian delivery TO gearitalia, but Pete communicated this very fair to me troughout the delay.
Result: respect, will buy again anytime.

Sorry for the thread hijack, and I've read on here before about changing midpipe, it seems some conflicting things, if you change the midpipe do you HAVE to change the eprom?

The answer is a definite maybe. I changed the mid pipe on my Brutale 750, when I had one, with no issues. I changed the midpipe on my 1000 with no issues. I changed the midpipe on my 910R and had to have a PC. I could have changed the eprom but I chose the PC3 and a custom map.

I swapped a midpipe for the stock one on a 910s and had no problem either. I don't know if there was an eprom change but it made no difference.

Thanks CAG!
I really want to do this mod, bike is bone stock but the mid-pipe looks so much better than the factory section!

Ditto, but I want to do it to help cool the engine a bit in addition to the performance gain. And for those that live in states with inspections, ever have any issues?
