    Im staying with the OEM risers which are 4" diameter and terminating at straight thru cans. I know, I know, but grenading the OEM engine severely taxed our savings account and lighter, better replacement exhausts are out of the question.

    PS: Pat, are open cans ok at the Connecticut River Run you always post about?

    I run open exhaust at the CT river run.

    From Memorial day to Labor day, I bolt inside my tips a set of cheap mufflers just to take the edge off.
    Thanks, Patrick
