Slip Experiment

So I have been playing around with the welder this weeekend and wiped up a mid pipe that will allow me to try different cans on the bike.

The first one up for test is the FMF MegaMax I just had lying around.

Have to admit it sounds really good.

The high pitched rattle you hear when blipping the throttle is the handle on the top case.

Did you fire it up without a muffler? They are bad azz sounding that way. I'd love to run my Vee at the strip that way but you lose too much power. Bummer. The pipe sounds good. Looking forward to your comparisons.

When I first put on the full Arrow header system I did that, it set off the car alarm parked in the driveway across the street.

I am very happy with how the bike's behavior when accelerating has changed, it spools up a lot quicker and one up to speed the bike is not too bad on the ear.

I have seen a 1.5mpg drop per the computer.
