open exhaust

If you have never started it up without the cans on it is impressive. While changing the tire a while back I did a quick video of it because I was shocked how awesome and throaty this machine is.

Sounds even better running 7 and 8 grand.  While in Colorado for the national, we were running up a mountain pass and I had it wound up while keeping up with everyone else on the 14.  Ted was behind me and commented on how sweet it sounded.   :motonoises:

Sounds awesome, but I think a quiet exhaust is better for long trips. Some people do drill out the baffle for more sound, but not too much sound.

Hey Willy....if it's too loud, you're too old!   :nananana: :nananana: :nananana:

seriously though....I put a set of Dale Walker's Holeshots on mine.  it's just enough to hear it, but very minor noise level over stock.  I've run other aftermarket cans on other bikes, but this is definitely the quietest.

I put them back on after the video, only took them off to change the tire but just had to fire it up to see what it sounded like. I don't think it would be all that great to run the bike like that for very long, not only loud but lack of back pressure and all that jazz.

I revved my old '99 without the cans on...Charlie the rabid weiner dog peed on the garage floor and ran outside.  I found him scratching at the back door and shaking like a leaf.  I guess he wasn't a fan of loud pipes.

The only sound sweeter is the sound of the C-10 With a 4 into 1 exhaust. I had one on mine for 9 years. Very sweet sound indeed.

I went around the block on mine with the cans off after a tire change.  It is a great sound, but yes it would get annoying.   I wish there was a good commercially available 4 into 1 for the C10 that worked with bags installed.
Fyi,
I drilled my baffles and like it!

Jeff, I have the parts to build another 4 into 1 if you are interested in doing it.

Whenever I change the rear tire, I take the bike for a spin around the block with the mufflers off.  It's fun, but I wouldn't want to do it for much longer than that.  (Granted, my "around the block" is several miles.)
