I may be odd but to each their own. :-) Then again the fact that I have miks with stock airbox with a k&n filter and a dynojet jet kit may have an affect on the sound of my Tors. You may be getting a very different sound with your pods fitted because my legend has a pretty deep throaty sound to it. Maybe I'll have to swing down to Vegas next year so you can hear it. Goodluck on your search for new silencers.

Thanks!

You are welcome any time.

The pods really do change the exhaust note quite a bit- Really funny thing is, with my helmet on, she sounds just like I like. Loud but not ears bleeding and babies crying loud with a nice deep tone. With a bare head though, the note goes up a full octave at least, and I can hear the tinny kind of sheet metal warbling undertones. Weirdest thing. I'll have to keep that in mind once I start experimenting with packing in the shortys... all my exhaust note testing will be done in the parking lot with no helmet. THAT'S going to piss my neighbors off :: grin ::

Lol, now that you mention it the first time I fired up my legend after getting her running right I think I scared my Somalian neighbors. They closed their windows and brought their kids inside. At least its kept their kids from running around our parking lot.

Being as you usually ride with a helmet and the sound is good what's the problem!

I've got a pair of stainless steel custom made silencers on my Thunderbird Sport which with helmet on and no earplugs are too loud with the experience not being helped by wind noise.

But with earplugs in, which is the usual case on all my bikes, the exhaust sounds fantastic!

There is that... On the other hand, when I am riding outside Nevada (often) I ditch the helmet at every opportunity, so getting Belle to sound "right" will be a benefit there. Who knows, maybe I'll be able to sell the TORs for enough more than I paid for the shortys to buy another part :: grin ::

TORs are on ebay, along with a bunch of other stuff (see classifieds for links).

Turns out BOTH cans were rashed up - I found the damage on the left one when I cleaned it. Oh well - they still SOUND right :: grin ::

Did you ever get your Emgos packed the way you wanted? What did you use? How much?
I found this site with the SS stuff...

Try http://www.autocyclers.com/. This is a motorcycle graveyard, and they've got probably 1,000 salvaged bikes in there, or more. The owner is an extremely nice guy.
