I have changed the silencer from an oval to a round stubby just purely for the looks,  with the baffle in its about the same loudness as the other one with its baffle removed.

Its only about 45mm through the can but opens right up at the end cap/skip which is painted black and sooty so its hard to see the bore or baffle,  sounds great, got it off a mille thou..

hi Ross,

Love it! Great engineering. I see you've got next to no air filter and a fuel processor. Does it improve your (the bikes) performance?

Yes, the fuel processor smoothes out the engine and until recently I could hear the glorious sound of induction roar ..the filter is an oil impregnated tophat with a cage inside to stop it being sucked into the butterflies ...I have yet to get it dynoed but my buttdyno is telling me its got a few more ponies and a good handful more torque...acceleration is more instant and smoother and bike goes past the 120mph mark in top but its the 30 to 90 that's most improved...all on private roads etc m'lud...

Wrapped the pipes six inches down from the manifolds more to stop my boots and textiles melting on the pipes .
Been running them for a while now and would not swap them for any other pipes ...I'm more function over fashion .
The back pressure created by going from 4inches to 2inches and finally to about an 1¼ inch via the baffle must be spot on as the bike pulls strongly and smoothly in every gear with a marked improvement in the roll on from 70mph in top ...it also does the same speed two up as one up albeit with less haste ,which suggests to me it has the power to pull even higher gearing than the vs1400 convo supplies...

I liked it how it was but I suppose you have two looks for the price of not a lot. Cool

No video yet , I have a helmet cam thingy somewhere but can I find it .... Phone not good enought to capture sound ,want to do a ride by too... On the plus side my mot guy says its loud when I'm riding it ( he was following behind me on a cbf1000 unbeknown to me ) but he said it will pass if I don't rev it above tickover ...he likes bright lights and loud pipes ...

Really love the look of that set-up - reckon it'd look good on mine.  If you ever feel like knocking any more off, give me a shout.  Re the MoT comments - mine went in on Friday, my testers line is that they're not given any specific revs for the bike to be held at during testing, so as long as it's quiet enough on tick-over, it's a pass as far as he's concerned,
