Captain French: Regarding a video, unfortunately I do not own a quality video camera and my iPhone simply does not do it justice. Here's a suggestion: Just imagine the sound of factory mufflers, and then imagine the sound of wide open drag pipes with no cat. If you would like your bike a bit louder than stock but still closer to factory than to drag pipes, simply replace your cat with an X-Pipe. On the other hand, if you would like your bike significantly louder than stock, but not as obnoxiously "look at me" noisy as drag pipes then do what I did. My ears perceive that Sleeper Pros with a Motone X-Pipe produce a sound that is about 70% down the volume spectrum between dead-factory and open drag pipes w/ X-Pipe. But it's not just the Sleeper Pro's volume that is appealing -- it's the deep throaty tone. Remember what a small block Chevy sounds like with headers and Cherry Bomb mufflers? It's kind of the Triumph version of that. Just enough to get the blood flowing without going full metal Don Garlits and pissing off all the neighbors even when you're trying to be quiet.
MajSteveTrevor: As for the 16-Tooth sprocket, I was not sure I would like it so I left the chain at 108 links. It's fine but the rear axle is back pretty far in the slot. I'd like to remove just one link but nobody seems to stock bisexual master links.
Psychopasta & Forjox: I appreciate the 12-Minute tune reminder. I will wait to do that until next weekend after I do the airbox delete and add my BoosterPlug. Can't wait to hear that ol' K&N intake noise combined with my new pipes. Makes me feel young again just thinking about it, LOL.
