    My MOT tester never worried about the lack of mine on the striple, they're still hung up in the garage I really should get them shifted.

    First ride out with the sc exhaust.
    Thereís no getting away from it itís loud. Itís quite a harsh noise not just deep but really raspy. The you tube vids out there are pretty close tbh even listening on the phone.
    Anyway, Earplugs in and helmet on and for me at least, a lot of the harshness is gone.

    Poorly up the road and you can tell that it runs clearer. A lot less restrictive, revs up quicker as well. As I click through gears using the quickshifter the exhaust pops as each new gear is selected. Coming down the box the auto blip sounds delicious.
    Open road now and into a national speed limit and it absolutely screams. At higher revs the pops and bangs are louder and the auto blip is simply perfection. I couldnít want for anything more. Massive grin on my face, you canít help keeping it in the lower gear for longer just to hear the delicious 3 cylinder orchestra sing at you and everyone else in a 5 mile vicinity.
    It is too loud, but itís absolutely staying on. The styling really suits the bike, itís gone from hot but plain girl next door to top dollar porn star. Sheís a dirty girl!

    Love it.
