Laugh Another aftermarket slip-on fan

Same here, I put on a Big Gun slip-on, its a straight-through design, not internally baffled like Mendoteachs FMF quiet pipe, and it gave me big gains from the bottom all the way up...it revs quicker and pulls longer on top, plus gave me even more of the massive torque I love most about this bike....and made the throttle response snappier ta' boot

My Big Gun is also much lighter than the stocker, and with the quiet insert in I can trail ride without earplugs no prob, it only barks when you're getting on it hard, and then it just sounds good to me, still not too loud imo. Plus it looks really good on the bike
For me it was money well spent
