Took my bike out today to give the new exhaust a second testing. Used ear plugs this time and although I absolutely love the look of it compared with the stock exhaust...and the sound is awesome off the bike. I just find it too much to bear when riding it, too brash for my liking...maybe I'm getting too old :(

Got home and put the stock exhaust back on the bike..I'll have to live with it's fugly looks









On a positive note, I ordered some of those 40mm plastic bungs for the frame....very nice :) Cant remember who it was on here that mentioned them, but thank you

nice photos!

shame about the loud exhaust. I feel the same - had a Bulldog 1100 with a pair of stubby end cans and it looked and sounded awesome... but gave you ringing ears after 10 minutes, and frightened to death any wildlife within a mile radius! So won't be making the same mistake with this bike.

the TEC looks really nice, just a shame it isn't a bit better silenced.
