Pete, Micron has been back ordered-mine is supposed to be here next week-can't wait to ditch the missle silo. Here is a good website to try http://www.parts411.com/acb/showprod...tGroup_ID=1074

I wouldn't order anything from Micron directly. They wanted $429 for my pipe which was $357 through parts411.com. I also ordered my seat skins through them--cheaper than LP and much better service. So far they have been very helpful with my order and even came down of their shipping price $16.25 to $5. Did you want the oval pipe or the round?

Unhappy

Damn, it was bound to happen sooner or later. Dropped my beautiful 929 yesterday. I was walking out to the parking lot after work and chatting with my wife (we usually leave separately-so I fully blame her ) well I get to the bike and...take my gloves out of the trunk, put on jacket, helmet, gloves etc. I hop on the bike, fire it up and take off--THEN BLAM I'm on the ground wondering how the hell I got there. Damn disk lock finally got me. Well, I quickly get up and pull the bike up (sucker is pretty heavy when it's laying on it's side ) and do a quick inventory of the damage. Clutch cover has very minor scrapes, left mirror same, and the frame slider had scrapes--that's it, not the slightest scratch to any plastics or the tank--thank god. To top it all off, nobody saw that embarrassing maneuver. So I'm pissed that I dropped her but very glad she's ok.

I'm surprised that it didn't damage the rotor or caliper. I'm happy for you that it didn't.

Clark, sorry to hear about your mishap, and glad the damage is minimal.

Sorry to bugger up your thread with non-related stuff, but I wanted to ask you if you've gotten your Micron pipe yet? Did you order straight from them? I just sent them an e-mail asking them if they have hi-mount systems for the VTR, which aren't shown on their site. I think I have made up my mind to go with Micron. Thanks bro!

Clark, thanks man, that's a huge help to me!!

I haven't made up my mind on round vs. oval. Not sure which one looks best with the hi-mount dual setup. Which one did you order?

Pete, I ordered the CF oval race can, wish they had a high mount pipe that got rid of the mid-pipe but o well. I was trying to picture which would look better on your bike and I guess it depends on how high the high mount is as to which one looks the best. Let me know what you decide to go with.

Hy-Syde, I might be working this weekend but if not I'll drop you an e-mail later in the week. Where are you guys going to ride and what time will you be leaving/meeting.

Cool

Thats great that nothing really bad happened to your bike but in the future put something on your starter switch (rubber band or string) to remind you of you disc lock.
