Gets rid of that whisper chirp sound the stock one has. Not loud at all just a change in tone.

Well thats one thing I didn't mention. The po installed a chrome megaphone stye muffler on this thing. Its the only thing thats not original on the bike. Really sounds great. Accentuates the "thump", but its not obnoxious. He has the original muffler that will go with the bike when I pick it up. He said the tip was missing on it or something. I don't think there is a tip, but whatever. I may re-install (if its decent) and use your tip.
