I have a 2015 gunner with xbow exhaust, problem is they are to quiet thinking about changing to the bassani dealer said it wont have to be remapped being it was when they changed the exhaust . My questions is it just a matter of taking the old exhaust off and putting the new one on or is the frame going to have to be cut, anything have to be done with the oxygen sensors, and how loud are they I don't want to sound like a harley with straight pipes I had a cobra system on my kawasaki and the sound was perfect thanks in advance

Look at the Conquest customs Assult pipe one of the few pipes I would run if I didn't have a Cross bike.

Your 02 sensors should already be unplugged there is no need for them. And the bike may run ok but it will never run rite till you get a power commander and a Dyno tune. And at that point do the timing gear and torque tubes.

If you like the look of your xbow exhaust, you could always modify the existing baffle. I did that to stage 1 straights my old highball had. Made a nice volume difference.

I have pictures of the baffles, but no videos. Look at it this way, you could modify the exhaust for free. All it costs you is some time.

Care to share some more details? I'm in the same position as the OP with my swept stage 1. I'm scared of going with any of the aftermarket systems for fear of them being too loud.

You can't quote me on any of it, but if the baffles can be removed, you can add or open up holes to allow exhaust gas to exit more quickly.

Take your baffles out. You'll have a wrapped end and a spike end with all the small holes in it.

Take a hacksaw or a grinder and cut that spike off the wrapped section. I cut about 3/4" from the wrapped section. Then stick the wrapped baffle back in. Great volume increase and nice sound. Done it to X-Bows and Straights.

As you can see I went through lots of hole drilling and still wasn't satisfactory for me.

If you need original baffles I have a set going.
