V-Star 250

Joined this forum because I bought a '13 V-star 250 for my girlfriend. I love using forums to learn about mods and repairs for bikes and cars. It's amazing how much you can learn to do yourself. I've already set up the V-star with a Jardine rumbler exhaust, K&N air filter, re-jetted the exhaust, different sprocket setup that I can no longer remember, relocated the rear indicators and installed saddlebags.

'13 V-Star 250 My GF's bike but a guilty pleasure of mine when she's not riding it.

'15 CRF250L Mostly used off-road.

'12 Harley Ultra Limited

Did you ask your girlfriend whether she likes loud exhausts before you made the modifications? Could it possibly be that she liked it the way it was?

My girlfriend asked the first day if we can make it louder. Nothing goes unmodified in this house!

Kpritter, tell her to meander over here to the forums too. We have a few lady riders but it's nice to see more!
