I just joined the forum today having bought my first Intruder M800 only a few days ago. Ive yet to put any miles on it thanks to work but hope to get out on it this weekend. On riding it back from the bike shop i have to say i wasnt really impressed with the low volume purring from the exhaust. Having rode sports prior to this it was nice (safe) to let the cagers know i was inbound. So this week ive set about looking up after market exhausts. Im not looking for 1000 decibels just something to put a bit more grunt into the bike. Ive seen many posts and videos for this bike stating that drilling 4 holes into each of the plates will do just the job.
Im just wanting to know if this will affect the back pressure and will it make a noticeable difference when riding from a performance perspective. Is there any long term issues caused by doing this and will it affect the sensors that are plugged into the current pipes. Apologies for the naiveness but its my first bike of this sort with such an exhaust
