new exhaust
« on: July 16, 2010, 09:17:01 PM »
so, this is more about the bike, but it is still a modification.

what's this?


Nicely packaged new exhaust:


the megaphone can even comes in a nice bag


Snapped a pic of the stock look before the surgery began


part way through, stock pipes are off


The new look - I also removed the passenger footpegs (that part was a real PITA compared to the rest of the install)






A look at the parts removed


actually I had to put that black servo motor back in as I was getting a check engine light without it. 

so bottom line - I LOVE IT! 

it looks great - it sounds great.  perfect.

It is loud, but in a good way.  I rode to lunch, and if it were not 100 degrees out I would be headed out on a long ride just to listen to the bike.  :-)

here is a video of the difference in sound.  the camera really doesnt do this justice.  you can tell the sound is richer/deeper but the volume change is difficult to distinguish

Sounds mean... like Mad Max mean.  Can't wait to hear it in a couple weeks.

I think pat was a little disturbed by the volume.   ::)

I still love the sound though.

I want a new exhaust as well, though I really have no idea how loud mine is. Then again I guess my bike just sounds like the wimpy little twin it is.

Sounds good man, not sure how I will keep up with you guys in a few weeks. :)

you'll do fine.  Just bring ear plugs in case you are riding behind me.   ;)   oh, and at some point if you want to know how loud your bike is, I will gladly hop on and ride it up and down the street so you can hear it.   8)
