Hope your all enjoying the weekend - I was wondering about loud cans - I want loud pipes on my SV - specifically so that people are aware of my proximity when filtering through heavy London traffic/motorway - I also don’t want to p1ss off my neighbours by waking them up at 5.30/6.00 every morning (or late at night)!Is the solution to fit removable baffles - and take em out when I’m up the road (also can i leave em in when I park up - or will they get nicked?) - I’ve never had trick cans on a bike and know [email protected] all about this subject e.g. i’ll be looking to get a pair that slip straight on without any need to alter the fuelling etc.
After reading Eezyriders post on the mentoring forum about passing stationery traffic and nearly getting wiped out (when they suddenly decide to turn) because they are completely unaware of your existence (because they don’t look in their fuggin mirrors!) I am becoming increasingly convinced that loud pipes do indeed save lives - any opinions - e.g they must increase your chances out there?
I’ve got a Scorpion end can on my triple and the baffle is OUT! I’m gentle on the throttle in the morning and have no issues with the neighbours at all. Give it a full throttle and people cannot ignore the fact that their car windows are rattling!
Odd bits on baffles. My can baffles are held in by an internal circlip that’s not so easy to get out. Without the clip the baffles fly out like an ancient torpedo being launched, so quick swaps aint an easy option.
If you run with the baffles out, DON’T LOSE THE BL00DY THINGS!
