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;

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.

    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.

    Hey Joel,

    I'll get on that post request. My apologies for lagging on a response. Thanks!
