I didn't drill the eight 1/2" holes in the end plate, but did remove the baffles. It's a little louder than stock, but not by much. After riding it today, I would bet that it would still be within the noise standards...Very nicely laid out...great photos...
I have one question, though...can you guys describe to me as best as possible how this sounds when you are done?
The reason I ask is, I don't want my bike sounding like a Milwaukee Paint Shaker (HD) and then when I open the throttle, sounding so loud it wakes the entire neighborhood up.
I wouldn't mind it sounding throatier, but want to avoid it sounding like a really loud and obnoxious HD.
