Community Announcements

We know it has been a challenging few years for all of us, but last year was especially challenging for the support of this community. We had some significant expenses, while the support from our membership continues to be significantly smaller than years past. If you appreciate this community and want to see it continue to grow and improve, it is important that you support us through subscriptions. We are only supported by the community and a hand full of supporting dealers and vendors. We have continued to keep this community free of intrusive advertising and banners, unlike most other online communities, but if we cannot pay the bills, we will be forced to look at some sort of advertising in the near future. If you are not a member, please take a moment and purchase a subscription.

Please thank the Vendors and Dealers who support this community by giving them a chance to earn your business.

Modifying the stock exhaust

I'm probably going to be scorned for this. I wanted a little more noise for my bike, in the end i will get something custom fabricated. I did something similar to my other motorcycle which was a 06 vstar 1100 with great results. Here's a short video of the results. I put the cap back on and it made the muffler a little quieter. I like it for now, just another option for those people who don't want to spend big $ on a remus setup.

Do you mean something dramatic like this: Sorry I can't remember the poster, but they may pop up, take the credit and explain their work.

Looks like an angle grinder cutting disc job to me. That won't make you popular in the neighborhood for early morning commutes to work or Leos with decibel meters!

So thanks to voxmagna i ended up trying what he posted. I'm not sure who did this first, but its a pretty crazy way of attacking the oem muffler. I also like it cause it makes the exhaust short and you have an open view to the rim.

Well I don't know anybody else that did it.

Does that give you enough noise now?

Does your bike sound similar to anything else on the road or track? Pity we can't post up MP3's here, although you could probably find a host - what about YouTube? Will it handle the decibels!

Yup, that's enough noise. It kind of sounds like a harley at idle, but screams full throttle. I will take a better video and post it soon.
