Re: dynoed my bike

Snakes, I know what you mean about the track! The bike is crazy indeed! The bike is sneaky quick. Especially if you ride by feel rather then markers.

Iiunno, its a toss up. I only really got to rev it up on my bike and not ride it. But been behind my buddy on his zx10r with his graves (that i borrowed). And it seems abit quieter.

The Yosh looks good as well and I am sure is quieter.
Thanks for your idea btw...you were the one I first saw install the graves.
Your welcome. And iiunno, i think the yoshi is louder. Might see if i can borrow my buddies graves exhaust and try it in the street.
