Do they make a slip on for the vstrom?
I am wondering if they make a slip on muffler for the vstrom? I have never found one on any site so I am guessing there is some mechanical reason why they dont make one? Perhaps related to the o2 sensor? I think I recall reading it was in the muffler or near it.
I dont really want a full exhaust if possible, I am plenty happy with the power on the bike. I really just want a slip on muffler if possible to raise the volume of the bike a little. I am of the belief that a bike really needs to be heard and seen for ultimate safety. My vstrom is so quiet, people walking on the road and through cross walks dont even hear me. I had someone almost walk in front of me because they werent looking and turned to get on the road without looking in my direction and they had no idea i was coming because my bike is so quiet.
I also drove past a friend on his bicycle and he told me he had no idea i was on the road until he saw me. If someone standing next to it on the road can't hear it, someone in the car will never be able to hear it, and doesnt that remove an extra aspect of being noticed when on a bike to avoid a driver hitting you?
I know they make 2 brother slip on mufflers for most the super sports, so why not the vstrom?
Also, to avoid making a separate topic, do they make a fender eliminator for the vstrom? Someone on reddit recommended getting one but I dont think I have ever seen one for the vstrom (nor am I sure I would even want one)
