Exhaust sound, check it out

PostAuthor: mrlaoory83 » Mon May 27, 2019 3:11 pm

This is how a Black widow exhaust system sounds like, on my 97' XV1100, more videos coming. Just trying to build the channel up.
Would really appreciate a few views.

Sounds great !

Just as a matter of curiosity, why did you blur the license plate ? I see others do that and it really doesn’t make sense to me :con: .

After all, anyone and everyone sees it whether it’s parked or you’re riding it.

Sweet!

sound/tone is excellent.

like Jake, I too am curious; although I suspect I know why --- to hinder someone that might be tempted to create a counterfeit?

I cover the licence plate, because there are rumors here in the UK about the police can actually charge you if you do an offence.
Maybe in this video I would have get away with it, because you can't see the speedo at the drive-bys, but they could use the footage for later..
Without the licence plate visible they can't basically find me, and even if they do, they can't prove that it was my bike.
I know it sounds silly, but better to be on the safe side

Yes counterfiet is an other reason..

About the sound, I will have a few videos coming up about that, because I have drilled it out since as it wasn't loud enough (don't really like it though, see next video why)
and decided to have a custom one made anyway, so full comparison video coming up.
Some other bits, like oil change, LED headlight...Time is my biggest enemy so it won't be a regular weekly video channel like the professionals doing it on youtube.

Thanks everyone for the kind words
