Looks like someone totally modified the muffler. It doesn't look like that when you just remove the peashooter. You can see 2 welds on the edge of the inner pipe. Someone on the VSRI forum turned his DL650 muffler into a straight-through pipe. That's what this looks like. I've been thinking of doing this but need a couple of cans to work with.

If you drill 4 - 6 5/16ths holes in the outer ring of both mufflers you will be very happy with the sound.. I had a set of Scorpions on that I felt did not like and were too loud.

I found the 4 holes I drilled to be just right... Nice bark to it but not loud.

I took a 1"(I think) hole saw and went straight in the end of the pipe. I used the size that just fit inside. If you drill through the first layer that you hit you will then be able to see the muffler core. This mod keeps the stock look but does open up the exaust a little. The sound is slightly louder.

looking down the 1000 peeshooter, the baffle just takes a turn about 12" inward. Thus I see no flat surface to holesaw????

I understand the options are

1 - cut peeshooter short near weld
2 - drill 4-6 small 1/4"-5/16" holes between pee shooter & chrome outlet
3 - do both

comments?

Forgive me for posting a link to that OTHER website

I like the sound of the referenced video clip

Was this really just shortening the peeshooter?

If you are going to "ruin" your exhaust, at least do it like Handyhiker has told you...anything else is just leaky holes in your exhaust. I drilled my old cans before I got my Leo Vince exhausts, and I wish that I never had done it.
