yeah that is exactly what kawi said it was, kawi is going to be big on noise emissions and alot on their chassis development to make power get to the ground, that covers everything from atv's to motorcycles

all pics uploaded; ok the sound dampening is removed, i really dont see what it does, its not like it traps more dirt or anything; so it def seems like its there for noise emission reasons; mines off and its gonna stay off; post ride impressions coming up soon
