Custom exhaust installed!!!
Right, so I get up this morning, far earlier than usual...Hop on the bike and head into town to get my V fitted with a custom fab exhaust. A fellow named Sam, a rider himself, got the bike in and got started on it. About 2 hours later, Sam pops in and asks if I'd like it to be silver or flat black, I opt for flat black. I will be painting my wheels and silver frame bits black later in the year. About another hour later (after some burger munching) Sam pops in again and says, "come start her up, let's see how she sounds..." Wow, fcuking loud!!! Sounds bloody mean. And I think the final product, although not as pretty as a T.B. pipe looks pretty fukken cool!!! Kind of a street brawler/rat rod look I think, and I like the out turned pipe as well (Sam asked earlier if I would like it pointed out or down). I will eventually get a Two Bros system, but for now, did not want to spend the money, other bits are higher on my list of mods! Although not having heard any exhausts except on youtube, I would guess mine is a bit louder than the Two Bros, and perhaps slightly higher on the tonal scale. As far as power goes, not sure yet as I've only ridden it home for a nap. I'll update later after I get a few more miles on it.
Total cost, $102.22 The pipe seems to weigh about 6 lbs, very rough guess, so about half of stock. I'll get some pics up later after I can get em the right size for fitting on here!!!
