I am buying an HMF high mount tomorrow, what color should I get, blue anodized,aluminum of carbon fiber.The price difference is 25 $ between them. So the $ isn't really a big difference. Is it true about CF. displacing heat? Wait I am sure it is, but will it make a real difference. I know the pipe wont get hot enough to melt the tail section,so is there any performance difference? O yea you will never guess what happened to my bike today. I went in the garage & started it up, but I forgot to disconnect the trickle charger. So it starts to warm up ( just a few seconds ) and it starts sparking.
Turns out the wires were laying on the exhaust. It melted the damn wires! No big deal I thought, Just splice them back together. But on closer inspection of the bike the god damn wires melted a whole in the tail section!!!!!!! O no O no, I felt so damn stupid!!!! Luckily I think the seat will cover the whole, @ least I hope so.:(
