EVO II Slip-on: First ride report...

Finally got out on Loca for a little while this evening and got to give the exhaust a run. Sounds sweet! It's MUCH deeper sounding than the stock exhaust. At certain RPM's in certain situations it has a certain rumble to it that makes the hair stand up on my neck. Kinda reminds me of the Superbikes at Barber in ways. Not exactly like them, but it definitely has that flavor to an extent.

It's almost louder than I really care for, but not insanely loud. I think the 636 with the Akra slip-on was actually louder than the EVO II shorty can is as a slip-on. I figure that's becuase the Akra slip for the 636 eliminates the exhaust valve. I think the valve on the 10 header keeps this combo a bit quieter than it would be with no exhaust valve. That's fine by me. I can come closer to flying under the radar with this combo when I'm keepin the rpm down and not giving it hell.

I'll have a better opinion of it after a good mountain ride but so far I'm lovin' it.

El D- The sound will get deeper as the can "breaks in". Hate to tell ya, but it'll get a bit louder too. Just keep the valve connected to keep some ability to stay stealthy.
