I love my "new" cross exhaust
I just installed my modified stock exhaust. There is a guy in north central FL that does cross bike exhausts. I found out about him on another Vic forum (edited per forum rules), he goes by the handle nascar6.
The re-worked exhaust is exactly what I was looking for: way better sound and a couple of extra horsepower. My KP long-shot stage one was too loud for my taste, and the stock XR was...more like a Singer than a motorcycle. Now it has a nice low rumble on idle and even better when you twist the throttle.
Jim uses a high quality baffle to get a good couple of HP gain.
I highly recommend this upgrade if you are not satisfied with the stock exhaust on your XR/XC.
Best upgrade so far!
