Have you considered hopping  on a boat with your bike and get them fitted over here where it sounds like there's a few more people who know what they're doing? More hassle and cost I know, but just an idea...

I'm really sorry for the annoyance your having with the fitting of the Straight Shots Clive, You must be so disheartened and angry with being messed about so much!   If I could offer a 2nd option to Mal's idea? If there's a possibility of you retaining the pipes and being reimbursed the price of fitting? You could send me the down pipes only and I'd get the bosses welded on for you then send them back for you to fit yourself (along with a friend, I know Mechanics ain't your thing)?  I'd be more than happy to do this, as another option? You could send me the downpipes for the fitting of the bosses, then have a ride over with the silencers in a ruck sack for a day and night in sunny Chadderton and I'll fit them for you? I'd offer you a bed for the night/weekend but, Elvis is having a few adolescent issues at the moment so even though I'd be willing to go to church (next door) Sunday morning... I don't think you'd make it lol.  So alternatively, there's a travel lodge 200 yards up the road, where we could sample their fine ales and food     .  Jo could take you horse riding too! if that's your thing? Some of those young girls look pretty fine in their Jods n Boots  

Now that is a great offer, shows Sim for the true biker gentleman that I know him to be.  wagg

Really grateful for your offer Sim. I've only just spotted it. The pipes have already been sent back, I have (today) had my lower pipe replaced as the paint was falling off, and I've put six holes 12mm per pipe in the back-plates (managed to do that myself !!) and am now thinking of knocking through the first baffle. MOT's here in Northern Ireland aren't due until the bike's  four years old how civilised is that, so I may just go for broke as they say, cross my fingers, and hope for the best. Once again, many thanks for a really generous offer, which, had the pipes not gone back, I'd have gratefully taken up. ps Riding horses definitely isn't my thing. I did it once when drunk, never again. However, girls in tight jodhpurs most definitely are my thing, given half a chance.

Blessings to you,my son.

Having put the seven back plate holes in myself, it's cut up rough time with the baffles tomorrow. I'll send a phone thingy to Mr I with the sound on for general enjoyment.

Now with 7holes per back-plate, and the outer baffle 'holed', she sounds quite a bit better (video somewhere on this site,awaiting administrator to bring it onto this thread) 
Question: Has anyone holed both baffles in each pipe ? Did that double the noise, or hardly make any difference ? I'm considering holing both inner baffles as well but would appreciate the experience of others first. Thanks.

Still no sign of video, maybe got lost (bloody technology)  Still wondering whether holing the inner baffle would increase the noise. Anyone done it?  Does it make any difference, with the outer baffle already holed?

Hi Clive,
After drilling out your stock exhausts & 'Rodding the baffles' with a suitable spike, (A popular mod with forum members) ....  
...have you thought of going back to the dealers to rod their exhaust ?  hyst
