Just to let interested V Riders know that the installation of the MTC Slip-on went great, and the sound is very good. I left the baffle in, as without, it would be too loud(as in ticket-getting). The size is about 1/3 that of the stock muffler, and the weight is about 1/3 also. If you order for a U.S.-spec bike, make sure to specify a link pipe without the 02 sensor port. Otherwise, you'll be looking for the screw-in plug. Looks great,too.
