I was really bored last night and it was raining, so since I couldn't ride my bike, I decided I was gonna work on it. I always wanted to pull the packing out of my pipe but I never had the time. So I gatherd up my cordless drill,my rivet gun and a pack of rivets. I drilled out the rivets on bothe ends of the pipe and pulled it apart, I took ALL of the packing out and took some off the steel wool wrap of the baffle. I put it all back together and back on the bike and it sounds sweet!!!! I rode it a little the next day and I did not notice any power loss....... now its raining again and I jus was want to sit in the garage and listen to my bike becouse it sounds so SICK!!!!the bike sounds way more aggresive than my dads zx9. My dad also has the same slip on(yoshimura rs3 stainless) on his zx9r and he told me, "what ever it is that you did to that pipe, I want you to do it to mine"I'm probably gonna do his next week.
