Exhaust

So I finally installed the baz bros exhaust on my bike. This was the first thing I have ever really done to a bike on my own. The only thing is it is straight pipe. A lot of people are telling me that its too loud. I honestly love it. But! is there any way I could make it not so loud? and how would I know if I am running lean?


Pics coming soon!

well straight pipes are meant for one thing to be loud.. not a bad thing people can hear you.. I wouldnt worry about it its your bike not your friends.. also if the bike is running lean check your plugs if they are black your bike is running rich if they are whiter its running lean.. you want them to be a nice golden color.

There have been others who have complained their Boz Bros pipe was too loud.
I'm thinkin' a ticket could be in your future.

No...no popping but i havent ridden around it too much because its really close to the bottom fairing so i think i might wrap one of the pipes so that it wont melt anything

I removed the ones on my bike with my friend its not that hard and definitely worth it, having the full exhaust you should get the pc3 and get a map for that exhaust.
