Sort of hurts to read your report - looks like you guys were having a great time. But keep it coming.

A lot quieter

Just put in the spark arrestor insert - and it is much quieter with less back firing/bark on throttle closure.
Pretty amazing consider it is the same length, just .2 inch smaller ID (1.100 vs 1.300).

If you haven't already, put the bike on the centerstand. Then have some one sit in the pillon slot and the front wheel will come off the ground.
