Nice. What kind of exhaust do you recommend. If I were to buy an exhaust I think a full exhaust would be better.
slip ons don't do much in changing the growl.

You're right, any slip-on won't do a LOT for sound volume or growl, that's because most of the muffling takes place down in the collector box under the bike. A full system gets rid of that box (and the catalytic converter that's inside it) and makes a big difference in sound.

It's all personal preference and also depends on your local law enforcement of loud pipes. Lots of forum members put Akrapovic and Yoshimura slip-ons or full systems on their R3s. Here's the Akra full system sound test by forum member jbluetooth

If you want an inexpensive GP style exhaust slip-on, the Devil D5M is a nice one

It's on eBay now for $302 shipped Express from Thailand (but Devil is a French Company, been around along time)

Just put exhaust in the search box and check out some of the posts/threads listed

Hey, I want GOLD WHEELS TO!
I was thinking, throw some Conti TKC-80 knobbies on it and hit the dirt fire roads with it. All four wheels appear to be steerable and leanable, maybe linked.

Power slides on the tight curves.....

I might have to buy another R3 just for that, reverse dual sport.:D
It's light enough. I was planning on buying a spare frame 'n swing arm just to hang on my wall till I find a crashed R3 or do something custom.

What wheels are those OP? Also. Are they painted or powder coated?

Re-post from my post under "stock tires all that bad"

$302.00 dollars shipped from Thailand is okay. But I got this "Leo Vince" (Italian) shipped to Thailand for under $160.00
