    Nice work

    I've been thinking of something similar. Can you provide more description of sound, changes, if any, in running characteristics?

    well, before doing this mod i was running staintunes without baffles and no h-pipe. the sound was much better than stock muffler, but not deep enough in my opinion. i am still not sure to buy h-pipe or bef's collector ?
    the modified stock muffler has a very deep and loud sound, to compare with a ducati with termingnoni's ! never had so much attention before with the futura, everyone is looking now !
    after installing it i had some backfiring, but i am going to do a custum map on pc III next days.

    Did you consider putting the original tail piece back on. Notice how it folds into the outlet and adds a little more style than a flat piece with two outlets. If you still then need to increase the outlet size you could add an additional one or two on the underside of the can.
    BTW, is that a typical German bike number plate? You could rent space on it for advertising!

    Meant to ask you, did the centre baffle with the 5 holes stay in or was it removed?

    Ok then Bef......

    If Bef gets to look at this here is a question for him.....
    What about making two cans... as you do now... but make them kinda like the yoshi tri-oval shape... Put together they would form the triangular look of the stock can... but have decent outlets...
    A bit of a cross between the Bef cans and what is shown here....
    The road goes ever on and on.......

    That's a really cool modification. I might make one myself just for the fun of it.

    Don't forget to answer whether the baffle plate stays in.
    If I just gave you mechanical, personal, legal or medical advice, it's up to you to get a proper diagnosis from a qualified expert.

    Mauri, could you post a sound clip by chance? and have you experimented with any other color? I have the Ash black and was wondering how a matte black (instead of chromed) end cap would look. Thoughts?
