Starting to get out again on the bike after a cold winter. With the Yoshimura on the bike still, my ears are ringing worse than they normally do. Have to get that damn thing off the bike. The stocker is probably heavy as heck, but it's worth it. Based on the posts here, the Akrapovic seems like it hits the right balance between grrrrr and hmmmm, but it's so expensive. As soon as I get something to replace mine, the Yoshi is up for sale, and cheap.

I feel your pain. I hate the Two Bros Racing that is on my bike. Just obnoxious. I wish I had the stock can.

Yeah, my kid's doesn't have that baffle. I am .78 miles from the highway. I can hear the bike....even when he is traveling in my direction....and there's trees and houses between us. I told him when he goes deaf, he's going to wish his bike was quieter.

Finally put a stock can back on my bike. I still have Arrow headers and reset the PCV. I like it soooooo much better. Has a little growl to it, but no longer obnoxious and way easier on my ears. Yeh, it's heavy as hell, but overall it's far nicer to ride now.
