The can has two sound baffles at the output end of the slip-on, I took them off when I installed it. There is nothing internally, it's a straight shot through the two tubes.

I've been doing that on the last 8 BMW's I've owned. I think it's the safest way to park a bike, period!
3 R1200GS's
2 HP2's
2 S1000's
G650X

Never had a problem with any of them.
