Also had lowered rear 2.5", liked the look but also went back to original......the bike is now a joy to ride! Im 57 years old....maybe just too old for that. Lol. Maybe time for a goldwing!
Nahhh, You just like a plushier ride that doesn't send jolts of pain into your spine on every bump.

This. 100% this. Loud exhausts sound great at idle on sub liter engines but at speed are obnoxious fart machines.

Yes, we do Steve. It is why we make you ride in the back of the group.

Yea. Those are the pipes I have!

I have an '08 C50.
Everyone makes me ride at the back because of my Morton Violators.
Longest ride: 1241 miles in 20 hours 15 minutes


Interested in a replacement gas tank, in black, but I'm cheap

If you want loud, just remove the pipes altogether.

That's basically what Steve's pipes do. There is nothing but a short tube to direct the hot gasses past his legs. No pretense of noise control whatsoever.

I had straight shots on my C50. I was actually happy to get rid of them with the bike. They were definitely too loud.
