I like the way it sounds but it's about 1/10th away from full retard loud without the baffle. I can't remember what it measured at, but it was less than 2db quieter with the baffle at partial throttle and just as loud at WOT.
Looks great, though. Aside from the **** exhaust strap that melted to it. And the slipon pipe clamp that rusted within a few weeks. You get what you pay for.
i know its not much to go on, but my dad has that danmoto on his 1200 bandit and it sounds amazing. im pretty sure when it idles next to mine (i have a delkevic stubby), mines louder but when we're out riding and he opens up it sounds incredible but is insanely loud. his bike is also setup a little lean like the sv so on the decel it pops alot and that sounds awesome through this pipe so i imagine it would sound very nice with ours. like i said, being on another bike its not much to go on but i hope that helps.
