Wow a video as well. Yep they go to a lot of trouble to make this sort of stuff don't they? And then we all take it straight off  :008:
They ONLY go through all the trouble because of the EURO 4 legislation crap. EURO 5 is two years away...but the only upside to that is we finally get OBD2 across the board. Again, just because a manufacturer goes to great lengths in designing these type of parts, don't think for a moment its for riders best interest.

BTW: EURO 4 was the death of the fantastic Daytona 675 (discontinued in '17 - possibly the last pure analog MC left)

I'd like to see them put a little more effort into designing a frame that doesn't rip apart every time you hit a pothole.  :164:

 Look on the bright side. It's not every time. Just one time, sometimes. :-)

Tighten it 'til it strips then back it off half a turn.

Do you know of any frames not requiring a recall that have failed?

My point is, it wasn't a design issue, it was improper metal composition (from supplier). The frames not requiring any recall are the EXACT frame design.

FWIW: I have the later 2018 frame without need for recall.

Well then let's hope more issues don't pop up elsewhere on the recalled frames.  :155:

Did anyone on here ever try drilling a hole in the breadbox? I would love to hear how it sounds if you did, I don't want to try it just in case it sounds terrible and I would then be stuck with it. Its a good project for someone with a breadbox laying around.

I have my End can off right now as I'm awaiting a dan moto cheapo titanium can.
So I was thinking of doing just that since I posted up the idea in the first place but I'm chicken. Sad.  :034:

That would make it sound like an exhaust leak  :151:

Because I really like the exhaust exit on mine (no slip-on, tip on bread-box), I've been toying with the idea to cut open the bread-box to allow me to make a cut in the internal tube - eliminating the 2-chamber design that it is. Again, if you keep the bread-box and want it louder, either eliminate the CAT or make internal mods to the bread-box. But just drilling holes will make it sound cheap/bad IMO.

Hey Z9 yes it was your idea  :002: Yeah I am too chicken to try it as well, if I had one lying around and wasn't going to use it again I would give it a go, but I don't. Maybe someone will at some stage. Stay safe.

Yeah, I talked big but I noticed my hole saws stayed in their case.  :164:
The other thing is I liked the tone with the OEM can off the bike. I'm hoping the dan moto can doesn't quiet it down much, which I suspect it won't being a straight through design.
