I have a pair of Wings slip-ons on my 950. They sound great with the inserts out, but can be a tad loud on long trips.

If I would like to quieten them down just a little, can I take the insert and grind off some of the internal tubing or would this not be recommended ?


So ideally they would be a little louder than with them in and a little quieter than with them out completely?

Mate cut my inserts back to finish flush with the inside of the insert and still gave a nice note I'd say go for it.
