Best sounding can.

I am considering a shorter can on my 955 st and was wondering which make/model sounds best.Does the bike need any mods after fitting?
Cheers.

No idea, but I'd like a High mount can (I won't be using the panniers since I am missing one, so I'll be taking the mounting racks off as well), that's not overly loud, but still is a bit louder than stock. I don't like the stumpy ones either...

I might just get a Wolf underseat system - any ideas what tune is needed for that setup?

Thing is with aftermarket cans is that they all essentially sound the same - its just that some are louder than others.
Shorter ones will have slightly more of a rasp - longer ones will have a slightly deeper note.

I have a Kerker carbon can on my bike & as a race can it was too loud for my liking as a straight through jobbie, so I fitted a universal baffle kit to it (10 on ebay) & now it sounds gorgeous, but not too loud.

I think you just need to select the can you like the look of/fits your budget & go with that - as I said, the sound will be similar whatever you fit. Its just the noise level thats different

I don't believe this at all. As you said some are louder than others some are raspy some have deeper tones. The D&D's 2 into 2 under belly are the shortest and have the deepest throatiest loudest tone of all.

The OP asked about simply fitting a can.

I believe my observations are absolutely correct regarding simply bolting on an aftermarket can.

I have a Trident SS oval and it doesn't sound much different than stock, so there is a wide range out there, I should have gone with the stubby.

It just depends what you want.
Do you want noise...or a nice sound? Loud doesn't always mean nice. . .

They definitely do not all sound the same. I'm really happy with my Trident stubby. Sounds great, and not loud enough to make the neighbors hate me at low to mid revs, even with no baffle.

I used to have a Two Brothers. That one was bordeline too loud for me; it never set off a car alarm, but it often made them chirp.

Cheers,
-Kit
