Hi all , my first post on this forum

coming from a 954 the RC is a whole different bike. Was just offered from a friend on his Sp2 for a price that its stupid to say no. Long story short the bike came with I believe the GP style exhaust like this one on ebay . The problem is, its too loud for my taste and I want something a lot quieter. I know you guys would tell me to put the stock one back on ( which I don't have it anymore ) . What option do I have here ? Has anyone put a silencer on the GP can ? or can I buy 2 bigger baffle to swap out the cans I have now to make things easier ?

PICS



HELP!!!!:confused:

Welcome to the forum.
If the RC51 indeed has that very exhaust, that's pretty much as good as you can find anywhere. Those Ladybirds are astounding quality.
You can contact simonkobejapan. He's a member on this forum, Speedzilla, and Ebay.
He can advise you of options, since he makes them.
If you're getting a great deal, and you like the feel of the RC51, and the rest of the bike checks out--GRAB IT!
imo

Uploaded pics of the bike, the tail fairing is not stock and with the aftermarket exhaust and ohlin shocks I am not sure how much work needed to put in another exhaust that is quieter.

Post some pictures of yours and maybe you will get an offer. As far as exhaust still made, you already have one of the best.

Send SimonKobe a PM if it's possible to fit the large oval mufflers in place of the GP muffers.
The large oval mufflers a little bit quieter.

Duck : I just did what you said . I am just going to email someone the pic to post it for me if its still doesn't work.

I have not ridden anything for about 4 yrs and comparing the RC to my old 954 for some reason I miss my 954. My 954 was more flickerable more nimble as I remember. I think I am just a little rusty but then again the RC is a totally different bike and I will probably take a while to get use to it.

Not really but if it isn't the best possible map don't expect your spark plugs to last very long. Just that the longevity of the plug might be slightly reduced. Also you have you have gas mileage too. Best thing to do is have properly set by certified tech, who is no shit good with tuning a Vtwin sport bike.remember this is Just my opinion here. Have you gone to the dynojet website on info for the pc unit?
