Soo ..... I've just removed the cats and central baffles out of my standard can ..... not to loud but getting backfires on the over run which I hate ....
Currently running the standard map with O2 sensors off and sai off .....

Which map ? Akapovic ?

How do you find the sound?
Im currently running a Jester, I have the 97deb flanged version with 2 the jester baffles 1x waffle and the circular one but I’m finding it a tad loud.
I still have the stock and considering the above.

It's louder than standard but not too loud that its not a pleasure to ride..
I'm not a fan of loud exhausts...... I'll try and do a short video not that you get a true sound....

Yh I’d appreciate that. I like the sound of stock although riding / commuting through London it’s good to have a few more decibels to let people know your there but not a constant drone. Don’t get me wrong the jester is a nice bit of kit and build quality / fitting was a breeze but sometimes it just gets on my tits.....
Il look to do the same with the stock and sell the jester, only done a few hundred miles with it fitted.

Thanks for the taking the time out. Sounds always difficult to capture with a phone anyway but it does sound better than stock, looks like il be going down the route of exhaust mod.
Thanks for the upload mate.

something that i have done, as i found that it was a tad loud even with both baffles in. i left the waffle baffle in place, and purchased one of these https://www.ebay.co.uk/itm/Pipe-Werx-Exhaust-Quiet-Baffle-DB-Killer-to-fit-GP3-outlets-SL-Race-Cans/181236684498 had to shorten it a little, and drill a new hole to mount it. but i wrapped it in some fiberglass, and its made a massive improvement. the wadding doesn't last that long, but its easy to re do and cheap.

Thanks for the info, I’m just in the process of ordering one of these -

I’ve heard good things and should sort the sound issue out.
Should of been more clear in my last post that it’s the sound the exhaust gives with both baffles in I don’t like. It’s almost as though you can hear all that pressure hitting the waffle baffle and it distorts the sound which I hate.
The length and design of this one should suppress the sound but not to a point where it sounds restricted or pressure is being forced through 50 little tiny squares.
Trying to find a happy medium and should this fail then I’m stripping my OEM exhaust out.:scooter:

I know exactly the noise you mean, and that I personally found to be mostly caused by the second baffle. The dual disc one, and not the primary waffle one.

As for the baffle you’re ordering, that probably won’t work. You’ll struggle to get the angle in far enough.

Fitted perfectly, reduced the decibel level by at least 10db.... its the only baffle I’m using now, still has that jester grunt but just toned down a little bit......... less put put put now that the waffle and disc baffles removed.
