New Muffler

Discussion in 'Modifications and Projects' started by ametha elf, Nov 27, 2012.

  1. Currently I have pea shooter pipes on my bike, and there's barely a sound coming out of them. I'm getting the muffler replaced either this weekend or next, it's going to give a sportier note with more of a rumble. Ive been told this can only be a good thing for an engine, freeing it up, more power, better fuel economy, is this true?

  2. no its not true
  3. At best you might get slightly better throttle response
    Possible minor performance gain
    Better looking pipe
    Better sounding exhaust note

    At worst you will get
    Better sounding exhaust

    For that alone it's worth doing IMO
