Thank you, Thank you, Thank you...

garyh Nice comparison video. Thanks for that.

I have to say, I'm happy enough with the stock exhaust--think the bike sounds really nice overall, on my ATAS--not to worry about changing it soon.

But I do hear the Yoshimura as a bit "throatier."

And BTW - nice garage and setup too.

Thanks man. Gary

Yoshimura RS-4 w/ Video

Yoshimura RS-4 Slip On. I was a little skeptical of the sound after reading some complaints that it was too loud. During normal cruising RPM's the pipe is only slightly louder than stock, but when rolling on the throttle has a nice bark. Insert is not installed at the moment. I'm pleased with the sound as is for now.

Site won't let me post Youtube link.. but if you search;

Yoshimura RS-4 Slip On - 2017 Honda Africa Twin

the video should come up.

* Video shot with iPhone, Cannon DSLR, and Polaroid Cube+. iPhone has the most accurate audio. Go figure.
