Well that's fine for you, but some people obviously like to have fun customizing and modifying their bikes. These aftermarket exhausts sound NOTHING like a loud pipe harley, so that is a silly comment.

And as for the other mods, most of them are quite functional.

To each his own - Enjoy your stock bike.
The stock exhaust is fine - The stock tires are fine - The stock suspension is fine.... One thing I would bet money on is that you would not do 10k miles before you modify the windscreen from stock. (but dont tell anyone you did it).

The beauty about any of these machines is that we can modify what we want to "enhance" the experience - or for those who like it missionary, you dont HAVE to do anything to them.. Just ride and enjoy.

Stay safe.

Greg.

Here is a thing that I found on a trip out west recently. I was starting to get a bit pissed with the slightly noisy exhaust over time.

I have read all the loud pipes save lives stuff and was starting to think that I wanted a better sounding pipe, not a louder pipe.

On that particular trip I was traveling with two "standard pipe" bikes. When I was out front the wildlife scattered off the road in time at the legal speeds we were running (110kmh). When the others were out front there were a few close calls.

So I have changed my mind a bit on that one, but would prefer a pipe that sounded better, but had the option of better and louder. (Of course in a few years that will be a 4 way mapped user selectable dash option I suppose)

Cheers
Graham

Just mount one of those AWOOOOOOOHBA horns!

Finally got the GIVI Adapter plate in.

Removing the OEM rear rack is easy as pie, so no pics of that. The GIVI rack is basically a plastic baseplate to mount the case, and 2 metal brackets that bolt onto the bike.



The plate is the ugliest piece of plastic I've ever seen. Very pretty, those bigass GIVI roundels



And as you can see, it's open in the middle part



But finally I can mount my Trekker 46L box!



Room for the pillion




So there!

I have one fitted to mine. in the space under the plastic adaptor plate and in between the metal supports, you can fit a 100mm x 50mm plastic duct pipe which makes a excellant tool tube.

Another good honest guy who freely admits he ventures an opinion but didn't "check it out". Too funny...hey man good on you and yeah, it sounds just like an HD...don't listen. It's the MC version of the opening moments of Zombie's "More Human Than Human"

Ride your ride.

Agree to where quiet is good...but the wasp bike sound is like "it goes up to eleven" tone wise...not volume. Nice...never ever bought an aftermarket system before, but I'm gonna.

I'm sure you're not sayin' different than me: ride your ride....

Well I don't care if it's a 270 or a 180. Yes I've heard loud Harleys, Ducati's, Moto Guzzi, Honda Shadow. They all sound like crap being loud with a twin cylinder engine to me so I would be extremely surprised to hear the Yamaha and it be any different, but could be wrong definately. I'm just old and into quiet I guess. The streets are full of loud, loud old 71 Chevy trucks, Toyotas, every kind of motorcycle. I've even seen 50cc scooters that blast your ears. Getting out of hand to me and I won't contribute.

Contribute away...no one is gonna flame you for not liking the bike. Who cares.

But scoffing at technology and "new fangled stuff" is as old as "I don't wear my seat belt so I can be thrown clear".

So....have a skin. Your post didn't really sound like a contribution, but a welcome invitation to argue and make fun. We all take a turn in that ring...so go ahead, but enjoy it. It's fun to get muddy.

I will not have an after market can on my bike, and I have listened to Wasp's sound file. I did have a Harley FXDX with loud pipes, thought it was cool at the time. It was not.

My Duc is overly loud to me with the stock can, the WR250R is stock, I bought used with the FMF can, but sold it on ebay and put the stock back on.

I also feel that loud pipes do nothing good for the motorcycle community. I have been to the RideSmart track day in Texas, they do not allow loud pipes either.
