I cant take my bike off the road this time of year but want to gut the stock cans, so if anyone has a set of cans surplus to their needs let me know how much u want for them.

I got the boys at MPR to do my exhaust changeover, I think my old ones are still laying around there somewhere..

I'll call Rob tomorrow and ask him..

(He's probably flogged em off to the highest bidder already ;) )

i just want a bit more noise. i nearly bought some microns last week for $350 but they were already gone (surprise surprise) i cant justify spending $1000 or more to make it louder. but i want to experiment and see if louder pipes make the monash any easier, as so many people dont see me at the moment. plus i dont mind the look of the stock ones.

Chris, if u wanna sell it let me knwo how much?

ive done the mod just recently, and it is reversible

just make sure you ask your man to return the original baffles to you

once youve drilled out the spot welds, reversing the job to pass the pits would only take 30 minutes

with regards to your traffic safety concerns...
i am using MCS race baffles which are 3mm perforations about 12mm apart ie: < 10% open surface area

i know a guy with an 05 who has a nice set of yoshi slip ons and the general consensus is my system is about 10dB louder ie: 10x

the end result is when i am in traffic i can see people in cars looking around trying to get away from me, there is no tailgating :thumbup

much more obnoxious = much safer

Unfortunately we have to be what they say "obnoxious" inorder to protect ourselves since the cage driving f****rs dont care :boom :boom

i cant imagine what size of backpack you would need for those.

it is an easily reversible mod steve.... when neil did mine he put allen key screws instead of rivets on the end cap, so if i wanna change em over its only a quick job... might be a good idea :fact
