I've never not changed the exhaust, or at least put a slip-on on any of my bikes, so I think I can imagine your struggle. ;)

Oh, the struggle is real, I assure you. haha

I always have to mess with stuff, and this one is killing me... I want it to sound good, but I am not willing to lose performance. I already gave up 45hp at the rear wheel by downgrading from the Aprilia to the Triumph... I don't want to lose any more, just to make it louder...

Performance comes first, then aesthetics and sound... I think that once someone gets the OEM basemap extracted from a new ECU and distributed for TuneECU, I can have my dealer strap it to the dyno and work his magic...

Luckily, this is the best sounding stock exhaust that I have ever owned...

Well, there's your problem right there; owning the Aprilia. ;) My 675R is the most capable and most potent bike I've ever owned. I am blissfully ignorant of what I'm missing from bigger, more powerful bikes.

Yeah, I got a bit spoiled on bigger bikes... Tuono V4 1100rr, Ducati 1198, Monster 1200S, FZ1, CBR10000rr, etc...

That said, this bike is brilliant, I am really enjoying it so far...

So I figured I would try this out. Has the same 51mm inlet, bit a bit longer of a muffler, smaller opening, and so I think I can get the deeper tone I am looking for without the raspiness. I think I can very easily mod this to mount up to the Delkevic link pipe... Will be here on Tuesday... Will do another reset and stuff and make a video...

It's a tube. With regards to mufflers, that's what you are buying. I got one for my daughter in law's Ninja and it was surprisingly good quality...

The first one I bought was far too short to really do any kind of sound absorption... That's why it was so loud and raspy... The longer can should give me a better tone.

It's basically a copy of the older Yoshi style cans we used 10 years ago... Triangular tube with a perforated core wrapped in fiberglass or steel wool... ANd frankly that's all it needs to be.

I am pretty confident that this will not only work, but look better than the first can I got...

As for their marketing pitch, I am not too concerned with the "Engrish" translation... I bought it based on what I saw, not their verbiage... haha
