    My new DAM end can arrived today and took me less than 10mins to fit. Sounds fabulous!  :028:

    Looks good, Skids. Does it offer more power and mpg?

    TBH m8, I don't know, nor care.

    I bought it because I love the sound of them (I have one on my VFR1200) and because they're quite loud, in such a nice way, it adds to my conspicuity.

    My first ride with it on will be tomorrow on my way to work, but the 1200 definitely felt smoother low down and certainly didn't lose any mpg. I guess I'll find out tomorrow, but I wont really care either way, as I explained previosuly.

    Early days for reporting any changes but....though it wasn't exactly cold this morning when I set off for work (12 deg C), it did feel like the bike was less hesitant when cold and noticeably easier to be smooth whilst maintaining the 20mph speed limit in our village.

    Once established on the A1, the fuel consumption seemed to be marginally better, perhaps 0.2 - 0.5 miles/litre better, though that is well within the margin for error I normally get anyway, so only time will tell.

    They are very high quality cans, and the sound, well, V4 fans dribble a little bit of wee at the sound!  :008:

    I have a short video with the soundtrack of the beast but I can't post videos on here.  :006:

    Having ridden my commute many more times now I can confirm that fuel consumption has decreased noticeably (ie, it's gotten better!). I'm regularly getting 10.5-11 miles/litre whereas I'd be lucky to see 10.5 previously. I confirm this by checking how much I refuel vs mileage completed. I'm certainly not riding any slower and possibly riding, certainly accelerating, a little quicker.  :046:

    The engine is still not smooth when cold and at low revs (20mph in our village), though a little better than it was. If I was more concerned, I'd probably remove the PAIR system completely as this appeared to work wonders on my 08 VFR.
