For the stock exhaust, what's the proper way to remove the noise screen in the end of the exhaust? Does it screw off? Do you just drill it? Does the cap pop off (allowing you to pop it back on later)?
Went down to the San Francisco area and got into riding talk at a local shop... Boy, I am glad I don't have the asinine California rules on how/where to ride! But if I remove that noise restrictor/suppressors, is anyone in California (with a badge) going to notice? I understand the spark arrestor is further down so if they check, life should be fine there...
They were even like "Sorry, we can't even remap the ECUs for our customers due to CARB"
NFS, BLM, state parks and that doesn't even include the miles of dirt available here!
But I did get the 500EXC because it does open up the resale market if I ever do decide to sell.
"what do you mean I have to pay to ride my bike there..."
