i just got an 08 with nothing done to it at all. so im not planning on racing or stunting or any of that but i want to do a few simple mods. i want an exhaust and intake( the two thins everyone does to there bike) and thats about it.. but i dont like the footpeg position of the exhausts. are there any at all that come out under the rear fender? if so i cant find one.

Welcome,

You are correct there are no under tail exhaust sytem for the 08 I am sure you could have one custom fabricated but you would have to worry about all the heat shielding and space issues plus you would be adding alot of weight back onto the motorcycle!!

Rear sets there are plenty available do a search Sato, Gilles, Woodcraft, just a few that come to mind...

Just curious... if you're not into racing or stunting, what does performance have to do with anything???

I mean... why don't you just buy something based on the looks? Some of the best looking systems (ie... Taylormade) don't perform very well but look damn good @ Starbux.

Just curious.

No, thats why I bought the previous model, just love the underseat look.

Well, I'd still recommend you flipping through a mag and finding the pipe you like the looks of best. It's not like you're gonna miss the 3-10HP that a inferior pipe is gonna give you.

Taylormade looks very nice. It fits well and performs decent. IMO it's the best looking (aside from the fact that I really REALLY like Arrow).

As far as other mods: Gilles VCR rearsets are the best looking. powdercoated wheels will surely set you apart @ bike night. Slap a couple stickers on that bish and call it a day.
