Another exhaust mod question from a noob
I am hoping to draw on all the experience of those guys that have done some type of exhaust mod.
I bought my '10 XC used this spring. I am looking at putting a deeper, throatier exhaust on it. When the PO bought it he had a stage 1 exhaust, tune and air intake done to it by the dealer prior to delivery. The exhaust is supposedly throatier than stock but I do not have any point of reference. I have found a local guy that is riding a '10 XR that has completely removed the baffles from his exhaust. This is a little too loud for me.
I have the original stock exhaust that was taken off of the bike by the dealer. So that helps, but being in Canada makes exhaust mods a little more expensive then in the US. A $18 US glass pack muffler is $53 up here. Availability here is limited also for some unknown reason. Even purchasing on Ebay then paying shipping and duty makes it costly. Before I travel down the road of trial and error, does anyone know if the mods being done (either build your own or Glass Pack a set of OEM) will make much of a difference compared to my stage 1 exhaust.
Also...does anyone have any experience with the Victory stage 1 tune with any of these mods. From the reading I am doing it looks like most guys are getting a third party tune to match the exhaust mods.
Any input would be great.
