Thanks for the reply. It's funny you mention this - I almost took my bike back and had the originals put back on.
I tried researching about what long and short pipes were like, and the general concensus was that the longer ones were a little quieter, and I thought I'd like that.
They certainly have a bit of a bark, but it seems to me they are noisier to the rider.
I have since decided to keep them - they cost too much to take off and resell. My advice to anyone looking at TORS is to find a bike that has them on and make certain they are exactly what you want. I thought I did the right thing in this regard, but the information about exactly what exhausts were on certain test bikes was a little "ambiguous".
I think I'll get used to the long TORs, but they are certainly a little annoying to "me" the rider. A bit of a constant drone. They sound a hell of a lot meaner than the standard exhaust though. Anyone that says they're barely noisier than the standard pipes...well.....God only knows how loud they want their bikes to sound. The TORs definitely add a distinct "bark".
Anyone considering them I'd be happy to share my thoughts further.
