Great mod Jarv,
I like the tri oval look & it's a very different look for the Warrior...although judging by the response, I think you may have just pioneered the next big Warrior mod..!

Don't mention the "P" word Andy. I hate that.... lol

Everything has been done before by somebody back in the good old days - and off course usually better!

Jarv ... nice addition to your ride and probably the direction i'm looking at
Alan,
Glad it's helpful, I was searching everywhere for stainless exhaust pipe swedged and bent connector piece, stumbeled across them. Haven't dealt with them yet. They seem to be capable of making what ever you want. Now I wonder what your up to. Regards Jim

Default Sound test

Ok - here's the real one!

The weather conditions were crap for a road test.
Pretty slippery so I had to take it reletively easy.
I was amazed at how mellow and quiet the bike sounded with the baffle fitted.
We have no exhaust noise requirements here in Ireland, but in the UK they are strict.
This silencer complies with the law in the UK when the baffle is used.


The second vid is with the baffle removed.
It sounds much more like the Big shots with the V&H quiet baffles.
Not quite as "open" sounding and also perhaps not quite as loud - but close.


The third vid is a run down the road and back.
As I said, it wasn't really ideal conditions.
It was only 3 in the afternoon, but the temperature was zero deg C and the sun was starting to go down!


My overall impression of the sound so far - is good.
I'm looking forward to a full throttle ride, but the way the weather is now, that aint gonna happen in the near future!
My next task is to get a stainless connecting pipe made.

Thanks to youngja for the link to spdexhausts.
