hey guys and gals.. let me know if this is decent to justify the sound of the stock exhaust under load... is it overkill, too many passes, etc? i would like to know if there are any suggestions before i remove the stocker and make the "after" video... thanks

You could halve the length of video and still get across your point. Also, some close ups of the new Arrow would be nice.

Awesome before video!! A lot of exhaust videos only give a short blip of the stock exhaust and 100 different clips of the aftermarket. I would not say its overkill, just very very thorough. Looking forward to the after!

Excellent video, there's no "too much" when we're talking bikes :)

I did the same thing, as I was on the fence about getting an aftermarket slip-on.
I put my camera by the road and passed it several times; WOT, normal cruising speed, accelerating, decelerating etc etc.

My conclusion after seeing my own video, and now also after watching yours, is that I'm gonna keep my stock pipe, as I rather like it.
Quiet when I want it to be, growling when I hit it!

You're right.. It is a great mix I either side of the coin. I want it to be quiet when creeping and mean when on it (decelerating has a nice deep tone) but like I said I just want a little more thickness to the sound. The arrow with baffle sounded great in the video with the guy not wearing a helmet. It's done and done. "after" video tomorrow night :)

Looking forward to the "after" video, maybe I once again will have to climb onto the fence... :D
I've always gotten aftermarket exhausts for my bikes, and I'm sure the V will not be an exception to the rule - with time :)

Nice!!!
I think I may like the Arrow better than the Leo and others I've heard (virtually heard that is).
Sorry Leo??? Staying stock for now,,

The Leo Vince sbk that's shaped like a snail is a beautiful piece of art, but I am very happy with my decision. I wish I could keep the same deep tone as stock with a few more db. But call me what you want, the sound of a good exhaust on anything always gets me going.

Nice work, nice to hear it compared to stock, and to hear many different passes, not just idling for a few sec's.
