I knew Big Guns were loud, but was hoping with the accessory quiet core it would tone it down a bit. It didn't. This pipe is loud. Also, I was expecting it to be black with a black tip. It was silver, with a red tip. My KLR 650 is blacked out, so that was disappointing. Last complaint is the clamp they included wasn't big enough. I fought for an hour to get enough thread to show to start the clinching nut and just couldn't get enough thread to poke through. Lame.
