You're pretty good with the photochop mock-ups. I remember you doing that with your paint scheme too.

Looks good long or short. Maybe give the short version the nod on appearance

Mine was already really loud with a long pipe, I would think it might be a bit much that short. Not that really mind loud bikes, I just don't want everone for two miles around to know evertime I nail it.

short can looks unproportional to me.
I'd leave it long if it were my bike.

I would think a shortened exhaust would take away from the lines of your bike. keep it the way it is. the more carbon the better

The bike is clean looking with conservative styling. Leave it as is. To me the shorty can has a hooligan association to it and your bike doesn't look the part.

Well the poll reflects my thoughts... 50/50 can't decide...

Guess I will stare at it on my desktop for a few more days and see which one grows on me.





XR, are you calling "me" a hooligan?


Well, I never!
