I think it sounds mean but may be way over the top.

Sounds like it could use a power commander. Wasn't running very smoothly.

To me it sounds like a D&D with a hole in it.

Actually it probably will.

We had one tard at BHF run one of those "GP" exhausts. Hurts your ears when you are out there cornerworking.

Too loud, and why would you want to loose all your low end torque? these motors need back pressure to make power, dumping it wide open will not help any, only hurt your power numbers.

I don't think it was that bad. I love the look though.

My bike is loud too, but then again everybody loves the booming sound of a big twin.

When I was younger, we didnt call that an exhaust, it was called running an open header, and I agree with Toni, he has to be loosing performance with the absence of back pressure. It probably takes forever to get through the midrange under load I suspect, based on riding bikes in the past with an open header.

I've heard some loud bikes in the past, one two stroke comes to mind that was just stupid loud at the track. Personally if it's really loud, I don't think it's a good idea, and especially for the track. All tracks have DB limits whether they are enforced or not. Having loud bikes aggravates residents near the track and whether we like it or not... this leads to problems. I remember a year or two ago that the residents to Blackhawk were complaining and trying to get them shut down or to monitor their DB levels better.

Unfortunately it's usually stupid people that build houses next to an existing track and then complain. But unfortunately it's those that enjoy the track that lose out.

This is a MAJOR problem in the off road world these days. The only thing worse than some idiot builing next to an existing track is the bigger idiots that think they need every bit of power that the machine is capable of. Only the top level pro talent NEEDS race exhaust, yet some weekend warriors insist on buying aftermarket exhaust. I find it absolutely retarded.

Had a Busa come through a little while ago with one of those on. Suprisingly it didn't hurt the power much at all, actually I think it gained some mapped properly. Mid-range wasn't bad at all either.
