Cool VFR800 Gutted Exhaust

So after Longdraw (Colin) got his new exhaust, I've been wanting to improve the sound of my bike as well (not so much the performance). I came across this:

http://www.vfrdiscussion.com/forum/i...h-gen-exhaust/

It looks pretty easy and most people are reporting good results. Who has gutted their stock exhaust? What are your thoughts?

I'm after a nice growl but i'd like to keep the look of the stock pipes.

If you're low on funds, this is the way to go. It defitnely will give you some sound, as the stock sounds like a sawing machine on steroids.

But to me, when I did it to mine, it just sounded like it had a hole in the muffler.
If you wanna do it right and got plenty of cash, you should check out staintune exhausts. It'll give you that growl you want

I had the same results. I wanted to keep the stock look but with more growl. I was never completely satisfied with the sound or performance I got by modding the stock cans. I installed the Leo Vince and couldn't be happier.

so did you take the baffles out and completely gut it or was it partial? looks simple enough to hold me over until i get some bucks.

I did both.
Initially I did the hole saw mod, then I wanted more so I did the cut and weld mod.
If you're looking to do it to get by do the hole saw mod.

Mine sounds almost identical to the staintunes. I cut the ends off, removed one baffle, to make it a two chamber muffler instead of three chamber and had a buddy weld the caps back on. It has a nice roar, but isn't super loud. I can ride it up to the Wed bike night at BWW if you want to hear it.

Appreciate it sir. Gotta find some time. I don't think I wanna remove the whole exhaust. From what I've gathered, it can be lowered enough to get the heat shields off. Is this what you did Patrick?

Well, I just finished with my exhaust. Best $50 spent and sounds fkn awesome! Nothing like being able to purchase some tools for the job, use 'em for a few hours, then return 'em for a full refund.
