I'm VERY tempted, but how many other members here plan to do this "free" mod?

RE: To do stock exhaust mod, that is the question?
I'm not sure on how I should vote. I've already done the drill mod, but I did it to hold me over until I can get an aftermarket exhaust. Since I'm planning on making the purchase anyway, what did I have to lose?
Regardless, I really like the sound of the stock exhaust after the mod. win-win

I'm keeping mine stock and totally quiet. And voted that way. Big Grin

For approximately 23 reasons I'd keep it stock.

I am considering it, but have been waiting for a consensus on the optimal configuration. It seems to be leaning toward 6 equally spaced 3/8" holes forming a perfectly symmetrical circle.
Until I decide, I'll just have to rely on the 3k "rumble" when I want to be heard...

Drilled holes to hold me over until I buy an aftermarket exhaust. I'm tired of not being able to hear the bike over the wind.

I like a quiet bike also but the CB is too much so. Like Whiskey says, it would be nice to hear the motor over the wind noise.

Philippians 4:8 (NIV)
Finally, brothers and sisters, whatever is true, whatever is noble, whatever is right, whatever is pure, whatever is lovely, whatever is admirable—if anything is excellent or praiseworthy—think about such things.

I have an extra OEM MEGA-MEGA phone in case you botch it.

I threw my headers in the recycling. I really had 0 need since I got the RCSV...but for whatever reason I kept the can.

RE: To do stock exhaust mod, that is the question?
I'm not a fan of modifications that are not easily reversible should I ever want to return the bike to stock. On the flip-side, the factory exhaust provided little satisfaction to my ears (I went with an aftermarket option soon after taking delivery of my CB.) For those who feel the same I can understand the attraction to this low-cost fix.
