Hello ... from New York City

I have had my Yamaha XSR700 (aluminum color) for about a month here in Manhattan and have about 400 miles on it. Upgraded the exhaust to Akropovic Ti and flashed the ECU with a PCV (it’s part #22-078 ), and installed a few obligatory sliders and guards. She sounds much better and I suppose power curve is a bit smoother. Love it so far, esp. riding over bridges up high. She gets me in / out of traffic quick even though no lane splitting / filtering here. Her svelte figure still scoots me through. Looking to learning and engaging with other owners of this “sports heritage” bike.

Welcome from NJ......I am hoping to upgrade exhaust this summer, and see some don't require flashing ECU. Are you running yours with the cat ? My previous bike was a Harley with a v&h pro pipe and I did start to get tired of the loud pipe , so looking just for a little better sound and not to loud.
how do you like the flash? are you running the DB Killer or no? i just installed the AKRA TI on my bike and tossed the cat in. its stupid loud with no db killer, i ordered a spare db killer from revzilla so i can modify it
I’m also a rider in NYC, looking to buy an XSR700. Would you say where you bought your bike and whether you had a good experience? Did you test ride the bike? Thanks.
