I literally made a bag of microwave popcorn and sat down to watch the videos...

That's a really sweet hollow sound you have when heard from behind.

You do seem to have popping on decel, might look into PAIR removal and Holy Grail ECU remap. I had a bit of popping on decel. and those things helped, although I never really got rid of it. Can also check for exhaust leaks...
Popcorn and a pop, I like it. I have done the pair valve which removed 90% of the popping. In the video I was aggressively downshifting to make it pop just to get a video of it. Holy Grail will be done after I modify air box and install a K&N filter.

This weekend's mods, the L&M rear wheel polished disc and Kuryakyn Spike pegs. Polishing brake disc is a little more time consuming than I expected.

Love the pipes! I have had several people ask are they loud so I ask you want to hear, no one has declined yet. Fire it up and blip the throttle, they definitely speak for themselves! That just brings more attention to the bike, which is one of the many things about the Fury that makes me happy. Another perk of the sound they produce is when you accelerate into the higher rpm range while shifting they will tickle your eardrums. Surprisingly at cruising speed they have a nice mellow tone, so it's nice to have the best of both worlds. They can be angry or chill, whatever you want.

So, you mentioned you got the foam trimmed. Did they add any other/replace padding before installing the new cover? I'm doing some investigating into custom motorcycle seat manufacturing to see how I can improve the long-range butt comfort of the OEM seat(s). One company uses layers/inserts of different foam densities in their seats claiming a better comfort level.

I did not have complete rebuild of seat, which includes removing most of oem foam and replacing with memory foam and gel custom fit for rider. Basically you spend 30 minutes on and off bike as he reshapes the memory foam to your liking then covers complete seat. I just had inserts redone and narrowed the straddle slightly and rounded the edges a small amount. Really not noticable just looking at it but when you sit on it the comfort level is better, even without having memory foam or gel added.

Now the tough part. What I had done was $300, if you want the complete rebuild of seat it's $525. Pricey yes, but he has never disappointed us and this was probably the 5th time he has done seats for us, some of which were complete rebuilds. And I like to be there to see the work being done in front of me.

Next up, time to do something about this. For the love I can not understand why someone would custom paint a fender and leave the reflectors on it. I pulled them off and it left this fugly look especially where the clear coat collected around reflector.

After much discussion about connecting the flames, matching color and the clear coat residue we agreed for the best look and cost, rear fender needs to be completely repainted. So on to what he could do there, in that environment and time frame. Many thoughts and ideas were discussed until this was what I decided I wanted. Turned out great for what I wanted at this time which was to make the eyesore less sketchy.
