I’ve donea mod on my Tuono that may interest you guys! I got some generic steel cans on it that work well and sound awesome, but I thought carbon cans would suit it – but at 300 quid plusI didn’t want to splash out with out seeing what it looked like! So thought I’d try carbon effect vinyl wrap. I did some internet research, but could only find keyboard warrior claims that it will burn, wrinkle and won’t work from the knobs who have never tried it or don’t owna bike but have an opinion on it anyway! But I thought I’d try it, so wrapped the cans to see if it worked. Well, the vinyl has been on for two months, has done lots of commutes,a couple of Sunday blasts out and one trackday – and still looks mint! It needs getting out there that this cheap mod makeover actually works! I got two cans that look new for under £12!

Top job Barrie, we always love defying convention, ignoring people telling us we can’t do something and then appreciating ace work undertaken!
