Indifferent to it. If my bike was not a numbered Carbon I would modify many things but the ladies seem to like it. There is more of a weight difference in riders than the muffler. A bit of weight on the back wheel is not a bad thing.

16 lbs on one side of the bike is more than a bit, but I can see your point for not modifying your bike.

The swingarm although unsprung weight is still weight on the left, maybe the 16 lbs is there on the right for that reason?

That’s an interesting point but the bike has been modded before and taken to track and the h2r has small exhaust with same h2 swing arm.

Possible, but my guess would be the 16 lbs are on the left because where else could you put that behemoth?

Well, thanks! Yeah, I considered the Akro but I wanted to go for a more factory look.

For those of you that liked the Muffler conversion, I took some more pics.
The second to the last is to show that there's not much restriction inside the muffler.
The last one is a muffler shape that I liked but I couldn't find any info on it.

Hi Lads

In response to the OP, I am running that Spark can. I bought mine from Brocks. I don't have sound clips but the can is a very good compromise between standard and a full open pipe. I also disconnected the exhaust valve and hard-wired the valve open (to be safe) and I can hear pops between shifts, pops on deceleration, traction control kicking in, etc. It is not obscenely loud though, which is the best part...

As for fit, it went on really easy too, with zero fuss.

After quite a bit of riding, the link pipe has turned a nice gold colour to somewhat match the standard headers too...

On a side note, I had done quite a bit of riding with the standard can before fitting the Spark. I did actually have to reduce preload in the rear shock by a click or two and play with the rebound and compression by a click or two, to get the same feeling as the stock can.

I've had one or two mates saying I need to buy a full system, until they rode it, at which time they raved about how it sounds. I don't know if that's of much use to the OP but I certainly won't be doing anything with my exhaust for quite some time...

Nice bike and clean install! Huge improvement in looks! I agree with you on the sound. More sporty but not offensively so. Hope Kawa is paying attention...
Thanks for your comments!
