New (to me) 07 1300

Haven't been riding very long. Had an FZ6 and sold it within a few months of owning it. It made me real uncomfortable. Too much power and it just seemed wrong (?) This was roughly beginning of the year/end of last year.

Just bought a 2007 V Star 1300 that has saddlebags, rear seat and backrest. Quick-release windshield and purchased a 2 year Y.E.S. warranty on it. Set me back $8400 but I think it was worth it.

Also came with a cupholder

I want to get some speakers so I don't have to use my headset. Not too happy with my headset. Need to listen to some tunes so I don't go insane with wind and engine noise.

Thanks

Is this a stock exhaust or aftermarket? I also think I might have that clutch rattle but I can't hear it over my helmet.
