I want to die while asleep like my grandfather,
not screaming in terror like the passengers in his car.

It will be fine. My LOR looked the same way early on. Been running it for 2 years now (after this pic) with no problems.

So the Racefit measures 115db measured at the track, loudest pipe of the day, 2nd loudest, Leo Vinve GP on another black 2008 ZX10R..

got warned not to come back without a baffle.. also warned to keep both wheels on the tar..naughty boy ;-)

I would still recommend a PC5 and map. The pipe will sound even better and you will have a little bit more power everywhere. my $.02

Oh how I miss my Racefit :(
