I'm not so worried about the noise or lack of noise, or whatever the reason

I'm more worried about the lack of money to buy the one Wasp has on his bike

Or how about the lack of bike?

I'm a little worried about that.

I wouldn't call the pipe loud. Neither is the Akra on my 950 or F8. Just changes it. More deep. Couldnt be further from a Harley with pipes. Loud, no I dont think so. Just better, deeper a bit meaner if you will. But of course that is in the "ear" of the beholder.

Its the way you posted your opinion Ron. More of a statement of fact then opinion.


Now has anyone any new info on Yamaha production in Japan ?

Limited production April 8-14. Let's hope that is to make the USA batch of Super Tens.

Sorry for my prior comments on loud as I have no idea how any of these pipes sound. May be fine. I just can't handle the Harley sound so I thank all for definately dimissing any fear of Harley sound out of a Yamaha. I get moody and have to complain about things that don't really matter I suppose. We'll get the bikes and go from there.
