Exhaust mod on new DL 1000

I'm new here and thought I'd start by contributing.

My buddy was over the other night. We were in the garage having a few beers and decided to see what we could do while my two bros exhaust was back ordered.

We fired up the zip cut. Did some trimming. Mig welded the end back on.

Completely undetectable. Still heavy tho lol.

How does it sound ? Well. I happily cancelled the pipe order and saved $600.

Sounds deep and great. Now I have to figure out how to get a video on here to show.

No. I'll try to get a clip tonight.

It's no Hoover I'll tell you that. We fired it up with no exhaust pipe and it sounded like a F1 car and a top fuel funny car had a baby.

I think toadride was referring to the appearance of the canister. Many of us modify for more than the sound, but we can respect the spirit and initiative you have shown. One of my favorite owner performed modifications was a guy who turned his stock DL650 baffle muffler into a fiber packed absorption style muffler. Just like you he got the sound he wanted for some work and very little cash. So kudos and let's hear the thing!

I'd love to see/hear it!
