    Muffler Replacement -- Update: got a custom cat back exhaust

    Hey all, I stumbled across a video where a guy put one of these on a Honda 600. It's not a straight thru so it would offer some noise reduction, and it comes in the diameter of our exhaust. I'm tempted.

    Update -- see post #39 for details: I went ahead and got a custom exhaust done today. From the first cat back I went 1.75 to a 2.0 inch performance muffler, then 1.75 to the end. I couldn't be happier it sounds great

    If I did I would keep the rest of the exhaust as is. I'm still curious if our stock muffler is straight thru or not, I can't seem to find any info on it.

    https://www.youtube.com/watch?v=n2hpMII8aIY kind of gives you a look inside the stock muffler, hard to tell but the design doesn't look to be straight through. Mind you I would not put this ebay crap in the video on a mirage, I was just showing an example.

    edit: I would start at 1:40

    I am back to straight pipe, little louder than normal, LOL

    I will get some video tomorrow of a cold start and some after warming up, and driving.

    All 1.5" left the tail resi on, it drones a bit at cruising speed and spits and pops and buzzes and growls but it sounds angry and I like it!!

    Videos later today, trying to borrow a good microphone.
