    Air Filter Change

    Thanx...i'm thinking it will probably make some difference...K&N's on the previous model Rockets did as did Ramair filters...i know K&N filters on the Thunderbird also makes a difference so a filter that allows cleaner more efficient air into the throttle bodies is a no brainer for me..

    Exhaust rattle

    There are no baffles in there...its not a muffler but just a shield over the pipe...the Muffler is in the cat box underneath the bike. Its got to be where those wee tabs are touching...the rubber grommet has likely gone. That top piece rattles if its touching...just a small amount of pressure...
