I didnt say I wanted it Harley loud, just a hint of exhaust noise would be nice. I'm not one of those fancy boys that ride with my ipod and earplugs, I like to hear my engine running.

On another note the wifes XT has a great exhaust note with the factory can.

I hug my piles of firewood, not the trees.



I cant imagine a bike being so quiet you cant hear it enough to know what the engine is doing?

do you have hearing problems?

just run a vacuum hose from the carb inlet into your ear, you will learn pretty quickly how to tell what the engine is doing.



I drilled the baffles out of the exhaust on the xt I had, I regretted that afterwards BIG time. it never ran as good as it did before,( even after several rejet attempts) and it was annoyingly loud.

I dont recall how much that midpipe was but it was pricey, may as well just buy a new slip on.
Ted. I know how you feel about it being too quiet.

I've got the DG pipe on mine with the silencer insert. It comes with the midpipe and it has allen head screws instead of rivets, so it makes it alot easier to repack. I don't think it's too loud unless you really get on it. Of course, I haven't used it without the silencer. Anyway, food for thought...

I saw that DG pipe, and it's a bargain around $180 I thought! I'll check yours out soon. Matt says you dont need it though, so how about swapping me the DG for my factory exhaust?

Yes! My hearing is bad from being young and stupid and not wearing hearing protection while shooting guns, and my right ear is bad from the wife nagging in it.


Oh and I think my hearing is bad from loud motorcycle exhaust also.

We should all go out to Teds tomorrow and help him and Dad celebrate b'days. It would be the generous thing to do.
