Ray !

Did you like the sound? You wanted to hear it, right?

Well, this "Michelle" likes to be mounted, but no way I can kick it, 'cause she's electric!

Well, the flange came with a battered Yoshimura, which is straight through! I'm thinking on make it a little shorter, fix it and try it to see how it sounds. But I think that to keep it there, I'll probably have to rejet the carbs.

I have to take the GSXR can out to paint the lower part with a heat resistant paint (2000 degrees)..I'll try it on the TA pipes to see how it handles...I'll let you know.

Louder isn't alway better. The DRZ can I have can get pretty loud with the modified endplate.

It's OK for a short ride but can get very irritating after an hour or so.

If you're going to Alaska....quieter is better

GSXR Can

I'm gonna leave mine alone

I found a video over on Thumpertalk by a guy who has a GSXR can on his Suzuki DR650. He took his apart and modified it to make it louder - personally, I think it's too loud and don't care for the general sound of it but maybe that's the way a 650 single sounds.

Looks very similar to a HOLESHOT muffler except for the small heat shield. I have one, too loud for my taste but it is the Competition model muffler. 16" long x 4" dia. and just under 3 lbs.

Is it louder comparing to stock one? I would prefer something lighter and placed on bike like this. And in same time not louder than stock.
Found also that this can is not for road use... :(

I have an Arrow on my 1989 TA also.

About 6 lbs lighter, sounds like a motorcycle now and just a little louder than stock.

But if it has stamp "not for road use" (as I found in XRV.uk forum), I cannot use it- no way to pass yearly technical checks... OK, these can be polished out, but anyway I still need E marks stamped on can to pass checks...
Looks like that GSXR cans can be solution.
