Depends on the design; pic us up and we'll spill. If its stock, may need to weld, otherwise almost all slip ons have rivots or bolts...

Usually packed pretty well. I had two yoshi pipes and disassembled and unpacked actually. Made a little change, deeper tone... Used jetski rivots from Ace to reassemble so they wouldn't rust rearended two weeks later the irony....

I hadn't heard of trying to quiet a system, to be honest... If its for the f4i, check ebay for a used factory muffler to replace it with. Should be able to find one for cheap...

D and Ds are the loudest MFs out there... We refuse to ride behind Trailerdgxxx6's bike for that reason.... Riding my bike w/ only header was only thing that could go over that noise...

D&D's a louder than even when they're new.

I know what you mean about the over 4k rpm thing.
I was recently riding a bike with a very short can and it would hit a resonance above 5k rpm and it would just become annoying as !

I agree. The resonance is the killer. I wore ear-plugs in my M when the rear sections were off. It convinced me that even tracking the car the straight pipes would be too much for me.
