Installed Arrow slip-on.

Finally got around to installing the Arrow Slip-on on my 2016 DL1000A. I have to admit, once I started it up, I was disappointed. There was barely a noticeable difference in sound between the Arrow and stock. However, once I pulled the dB killer, its a whole new animal. Quiet at idle, roars nicely under throttle and purrs like a kitten at cruise. Its a great mellow, smooth, deep tone. Pulling the dB killer was simple. On tap on the tab that was welded, pulled the ring with some snap ring plier and it came right out. Very happy with the purchase.

Having it on my bike, its amazing how much different it sounds in a youtube video than in person. Much deeper in real life.

Reference thread here with some funny videos showing difference in sound.

BTW, we are selling Arrow at a discount again.

I also was amazed in general how different pipes sound under a load, compared to just spooling up a motor. The first time I DYNOed my TLR I was like... WOW!!! They are so much deeper under load.

Also, Track day on the GSX-r last friday.... My fat butt say 166, and I need new knee pucks.... and underwear..
