Honest Abe mod on 2012 C50T

I've been reading through the exhaust mod threads for weeks, trying to decide if I was willing to try modding my stock exhaust. Finally decided "What the heck" and gave it a go.

I drilled 4 x 3/8" holes in each plate, and punched the baffles with a metal grounding rod. Took about 15 minutes and so far I like the sound! I'm really happy I tried this first before dropping the $$$ on some new pipes.

Glad you like the mod. Pretty expensive to add aftermarket exhaust. Lots here have and ended up going back to oem. Enjoy!

I can't trust anyone who has a garage that clean.
Sorry.

I admit, I'm pretty obsessive about keeping the garage clean. Everything needs to be in its place. We use the garage as our main entry and exit from the house, so I like to keep the floor clear so my dogs can barrel in and out of the house without running into anything.

Garage
There's even seating for people waiting to get in the house or for admirers of a sparkling garage.


I can head East or West, it doesn't matter as long as it's on 2 wheels.

Not necessary.....even if you put new aftermarket exhaust. Unless you change amount of air entering bike...high flow air cleaner. Enjoy what you have.
