Hi,

I've had a Two Brothers Racing slip-on, on my 2005 SV650S since new. I've always thought it sounded good, maybe a bit quiet, and was too long. It actually looked disproportionate to the bike. Anyway, since a small "off" it was scuffed up, so last weekend I decided to cut it to about 10 inches long.
I drilled out the end cap rivets then used a rubber mallet to remove the end cap, cut the pipe, and it looks exactly the way I want it, but it's a bit too loud. I repacked it, but I would like to do a better job of re-packing or have it done professionally 'cos it's still too loud. Has anyone done this? Any one got any ideas.

Cheers.

You need to find someone with a removeable baffle that doesn't need it. I've got a chopped scorpion with a silencer insert shoved in there and it makes it a bit more manageable.

When you cut it down it length the sound goes up. Not much you can do about that. Just try repacking it tighter.
