I just finished intalling RPW slash pipes on my highball. Holy crap are they loud (maybe a bit too loud) but the money has already been spent.
First question is on installling the VFC how do I get to the front injector to unlpug and install? It's a tight squeeze and yes I have the tank off.
Also is there a way to quiet down pipes at all if I choose too? Not sure yet as I have not rode it just fired it up for a second.
Lastly, is smoke normal from new pipes that are ceramic coated?
Thanks all for responses
If you already have these baffles you can pull them out and try wrapping them in steel wool then putting them back in. It may not be a permanent solution but you should be able to cut the noise by quite a bit.

Thanks for the reply. I do have those baffles, thanks for pointing that out, I will check with them and see if they have suggestions.
How would I use the steel wool exactly? Would there be any negative effects to using it?
