Removed the baffles on the stock muffler.

Here's the sound clip of my bike for anyone who's contemplating doing the same thing.

Not too sure about the tone, to each their own. But sounds like you have it running pretty good. Some have commented that when they open up the stock exhaust like that they loose some low end torque. If you think your lower rpm seems a little weak google exhaust lollipops. Exhaust systems need at least a little back pressure for low end torque. Race exhaust is fully open but only has operation rpm at full throttle.

Surprisingly I didn't lose as much power as I thought I would. I'm pretty happy with it. I also got myself a nice skull chrome cup holder on the handlebars lol. Love his bike.

Bonus: the loud exhaust drowns out any engine noise so now I can't nit pick any knocking or other noises hahaha
