Re: m635 Exhaust options and Supersprint install

Uh, yeah, looking at where that exhaust exited, i bet your hearing is a bit off #-o The drone is frequency and RPM specific, for me it was around 2K to 2200 RPM, most noticeable when just tooling around town :roll: Sure, if you zoom up through the rev range, you could pass though without a hitch :-"...

I see that you have quite a few views, but no suggestions :-?
