I gutted my exhaust

Let me start by saying sometimes you do things to be louder, different, boredom, or experimenting. If anyone had any of the same " buy a Harley.with straight pipes" bullshit..... then thus thread isn't fir you so go away.

Now. Plain and simple I wanted my bike louder. I didn't like the sewing machine tone. Plain and simple. I like to hear my bike and not spend a fortune doing it. And you knew what....thats okay. It's okay to just want to be louder because you think it's cool. It really is.

So I bought I spare cat fir 5o bucks. I cut it open. I gutted it out. Yes it is restrictive. More than optimistic MFERS will admit to. No it does no damage to your bike. At all. Ever. Not even once. Ever.

Then I gutted my can. Cut it open at two ends. Tore out the bs.

Then I welded it back together. I bolted it up. I turned the key. I smiled. A lot. It sounds so good. It is not raspy. It is deep. It is better. There are no HP increase nor do I care. That is all. Name:  uploadfromtaptalk1412121475006.jpg

Did you know you can get headers without a cat?

I ran mine with the stock cat, but no muffler once. Really not that loud.

I still have the guts. Believe it or not cats are worth more used. The carbon creates platinum..this was a new off the shelf cat on left over stock.

The bike sounds great IMO. I have some more pictures of the exhaust I'll post later.

I tried the no exhaust before I did this...the cat is very noise restrictive. More so than the can.
