Hahaha  love your sense of humour however, i'd love to tour the UK on a bike myself so unfortunately will have to reject your proposal. I'm sure the sound clip is doable. Keep up the good work.

Buggar this, we canít stand it any longer.  Weíve ordered 2 from Dominator to fly down to here via UPS so hopefully have them pretty quickly. Iíll let you know how we get on with them.

I would be shocked if you suffered any issues fitting it.
Remove the existing silencer first. then refit it last.
You will need to remove one of the rubber mounting bushes from the original euro-box and pop it into the corresponding mounting on the Dominator.

Happiness is a prezzie from Poland !

2 weeks to NZ is pretty decent.
We'll try and get a decent soundclip together.

Survey. Do you think the factory muffler would look better matt black ?

Ok guys. So we have fitted the link pipes, they truly are beautiful pieces thats for sure.
I tried a number of times to get a good sound clip but it seems even a Galaxy S9+ has its limitations however, you can tell from the recording it is quite different from stock. Its definately a deeper tone, and sounds very nice at idle. The sound clip just doesínt accurately record it so apologies.


Cheers.

After riding it, i'd describe it as quite loud at around town speeds. Not overly, but certainly has a decent nice bark to it. My immediate thoughts were that if it was the same at 4 - 4 1/2 k rpm, I would think it was too loud, for me anyway. However, at 100 - 115kph,  the noise level evened out  quite nicely. We'll see how it is after a few hours continuous riding  whether it's a bit draining or not.

And yes, it does crackle and pop quite a lot !
