A few have asked about the exhaust mod on my 1500. PO had this done.

In this pic you can see the location of the black pull knob, next to the mount for the wind wings

This one is a general location shot, you can see the center stand in the stowed position. The butterfly block is located in U area of the stand.

This picture is a close up of the butterfly valve in the closed position

And this one shows it in the open position.

Thanks, Jack!
Can you describe exactly what the mod does, and the effect?

Sure, pull the cable and it opens the butterfly valve basically causing the bike to run on straight pipes. Similar to what was done in the 50's and 60's.

The sound is deep but not overly loud.

Actually I can't tell a difference in the running, then again I haven't run it open for more the about 3 miles yet too. The sound is fun in the twisties but the drone is annoying on the interstate.

Be careful about misfiring and setting the grass on fire.

Hmm, that would be one way to get rid of the debris pile in the back yard

Actually I remember a kid doing that in HS. He had the plugs in the exhaust for the flames and over did it scorching a brand new cars paint job

There was a kid in my high school who over did the spark plug bit. He installed it in the muffler. Would go cruising, turn off the key and coast down a bit and hit the button to fire the spark plug.

Yep, opened that muffler wide open, flat as a pancake.
