Hey all from a noob

Hey,

I'm an Englishman living in the Gard in southern France. I've been a rider since I was 16 on a diverse selection of bikes. When I came over to France 9 years ago, I was on a Street Triple, which I loved. However, I realised that, as the ST is a bit of a hooligan bike (either throttle or brake pinned!), I should change so that I could keep my licence/limbs/life so I bought a Bonnie. Loved that too, but when I saw the Bobber, I had to have one. Only done about 1000km so far, but I'm surprised at how capable the bike is, not only as a cruiser, but it's not too shabby through the twisties too. I'm thinking about installing a de-cat pipe (X-Pipe maybe), does anyone have experience of fitting one and the volume and quality of the exhaust note once it's on?

Cheers.

After reading through the posts, I've found the answer regarding the X-Pipe.... Sounds as though I need one!

Going for the same myself. But will have the dealer to do it. Seems a tad bit complicated to do it myself.

I've watched the installation vid and it looks a bit time-consuming but not overly complicated. Hopefully, those aren't 'famous last words'!

I agree on the X-Pipe, don't know if this guy is a member here or lurker but I believe its one of the only examples on YouTube
If the owner is reading this, letting us know its you might help some owners here that have questions.
