I hate the look of the breadbin under the bike but not keen on making too much more noise - they do not like it round here - it is just the way it is - glares - noisy motorbikes ! it is just the way it is here. ( I have actually been to court for a noisy exhaust !) Can it be painted black with any kind of spacial paint ? at least that might help to hide it The end can helps a little tiny bit..... Looking at the 2020 R1 - I bought mine now as I thought the new version would likely have to be Euro 5, so bought the last of the Euro 4. I can't think that Euro 5 is going to make anything better. Sounds ok, and a few pops and bangs on the overrun !
