shhhhhhhhhhhhhhhhh the neighbors
Well recently about a month ago I made the old XR a little quieter to appease the neighbors a bit. They complained(jokingly sort of) of being woke up to early everyday, work six days a week quiet often. Also I was getting tired of the way it sounded with the Summit glass pack stuffed into the Victory muffler. So beings we are low on the green stuff, new ones are mucho $$$$, I utilized an old muffler off one of my old bikes. Muffler was just taking up space. So I gutted the Victory muffler of the glass pack and installed into it the old muffler I had. Welded it up. Well it sounds like a smaller bike to me, it is quieter. Had to lean out the settings on the fueler. But I am getting use to it. It does still make some noise, but it is quieter leaving my neighborhood in the morning. Oh yes and one of the side benefits is the bike does have a little more low end torque. So always a trade off with mods, once again this proved it to me. So next time I change it.......maybe I'll go with a Magnaflow muffler or something else. Or maybe something just to piss off the neighbors again(joking).
