If I could find a quiet, good looking, lighter aftermarket exhaust that was a efficient as the stocker, I would consider it. Having had an original H2 in 73 with chambers, I will never ever have another loud bike. I ride hundreds of miles each time I take it out and the extra noise is mentally fatiguing, big time and we need to be as sharp as possible. It is a road bike, ultimate performance is not required, and if I can't ride around a few extra lbs .... well. I never ride more than 70% anyway. Also masking the noises the SC and the BOV makes would be a crime. It doesn't have a bad shape, it is just large. I didn't buy it for it's looks. Although it is the best looking motorcycle ever made IMHO.
