After seeing different options an exhaust "change" has been on my radar. It rained all day so I figured a trip to Lowe's & my job was on the agenda.

Full length can 21 1/4"


7" removed


Final product 14 1/4"


Before


After


Instead of covering the logo with the hanger I flipped the bracket attached to the passenger peg & called it a day.


Wasn't as bad as I thought it would be. Only took an hour & 30 for a first timer. I used a dremel for the can/packing & a cutoff wheel for the inner pipe. A bandsaw would've been even easier. $17 spent on some cutoff wheels & adapter for my dremel plus a pack of 100 steel 1/8"x3mm rivets (even though I only needed 6). It barks louder/deeper at idle. I'll get to ride tomorrow & see how it really sounds. Supposed to be 80ish, sunny & dry.

Thanks fellas. I rode it Sunday morn around 9am before I ate breakfast (I don't eat first thing in the morn). Took a quick freeway & riverside route. Roads were empty for me to have a little fun. :smilie: It's definitely louder but not obnoxious. I was going for looks anyway so I'm happy. Too bad it got windy as hell shortly after. Supposed to be windy/rainy again today. :thumbdown:
