Cool or stupid? hehe, interesting question.

I had a ZX on my carbed SR, and it sounded nice, fairly 'throaty'. Now I have a Gianelli NRX on my ditech, and it sounds less throaty, and more 'punchy'.

I like the sound of both pipes better than stock, but I can't say which I like better, they were both nice.

peace,
sam

Yeh, and driving around with no exhaust is very smart ej :|

anyway, i have a ZX and i'm pretty happy with it... Sound quite good actually (better than i expected @ a ditech). The only thing i don't like is that it rusts like a motherf*c*er.... besides that performance is good and sound too...

BTW has anyone tried Polini funky exhaust? It looks nice but it is lot more expensive. Is it worth of money or should I just try zx.

if i'd be better in english i'll be able to explain u good... but i'll try it anyways:

1. First of all, an exhaust creates a certain type of pressure which makes sure the scooter drives good. If u don't have an exhaust, it won't drive good.
2. Dirt can be 'sucked' into the cilinder. It's not only that the cilinder 'puffs' out fumes, there is a kind of turbulation effect, which possibly sucks in dirt which can cause damage (duhhhh)
3. Piston rings won't be happy when driving around with no exhaust. If i explain this, no one will understand because my english sucks...

and ofcourse there are several other small effects...
