+1. With good earplugs, I don't notice it much on long rides.
Kept the flapper because I didn't want to mess with the d@mn idiot lights. I have had problems on a few bikes after removing them. 1 didn't care as long as the servo was still there. 1 had to have a bracket installed so that the servo could only turn so far (I guess it was providing feedback to the ECU). The other bike is race only so I don't care; I just painted over the light.

Quiet is Better. Why throw away perfectly good factory stuff?
There is a money/volume/brains equation here some place.

I ride because I like to. I don't ride for ego. I don't ride when I fear ice.

Says it is street legal. Don't know how you can remove the cat and still be street legal. Most aftermarket exhausts say offroad use only.

I'd keep the factory exhaust. Normally, I'm a big fan of aftermarket exhaust in order to loose weight. I like a quiet exhaust but the system on my 1150GS felt like it was made from old U-boat scrap, it weighed a ton!

Recently I had to remove the can on my 1200 to install a new shock and was pleasantly surprised at how light the factory can is. It's interesting to see that other folks here say they get louder. I hope it doesn't get too loud since I ride in some "secret"areas and don't want to upset anyone.....

Two Bros cut down any of their exhausts per customers wishes however they do NOT reccomend cutting them down for the 1200GSA as it will burn your luggage..thats a good reason!

Two Bros M5 All Black Series it is then!
