Staintune is SCWEEEET!

Installed my Staintune pipe last night after waiting patiently (not) for the UPS guy to arrive. He got there about 6:30, I met him in the driveway and practically grabbed the box out of his hand! All he did was smile and say "New part for your bike huh?" had it installed in about 30 minutes. The sound is great. Just loud enough for me with out the silencer. Looks really compliment the bike too!

WOOOHOOO

Dawg,
What's it sound like at 70 mph with the silencer? Can you hear it? Does it still up the ponies? Thanks

Bill,

I ran this morning up the 405 w/o the silencer running around 75 mph and it just has a nicer "purr" to it than the stock can. Cruising around the surface streets in second and third gear it definately is louder and has a great "throaty" growl. I can't tell if it actually gains any additional power, but it makes me sit taller in the saddle cause I'm proud of the great sound!

So you are not using the internal baffle?
I heard it's pretty darn loud without it.
