If any of you have been reading some of my posts, you can gather two things about me: 1. I in love with my '02 SVS. 2. I'm trying to fix it up on a poor mans salary. One thing that I've been reading about doing to the bike is the poor mans exhaust upgrade. I would like to chop and debaffle, or at least partially debaffle it. I'm don't have the correct tools, but I do have a connection at the local muffler shop. My only concerns are these: will it decrease back pressure to an unhealthy level and what kind of sound is going to make afterwords. I obviously want it to be a bit louder, but I'm not so starved for attention that I feel everyone around needs to know I'm coming. All help is and will be greatly appreciated.
