    FZS/R Thru Hull Exhaust-Quieting Down?

    Hey Guys,
    I've been wanting to go with the thru-hull for awhile now and am finally ready to pull the trigger..(cork?)
    I'm worried it might be too loud. Has anyone done anything to one that will quiet it down if I find it's too obnoxious? things like waterbox, baffel, etc... I know to an extent, this would defeat the purpose but I figure if I go that way, I can't go back so want to make sure of everything before I cut this sweet FZS hull(I can handle the noise personally, I come from a race boat/car/cycle background but my wife and friends might not like it so much mostly)
    Thanks!

    Why don't you try a FF exhaust and see how loud that seems to you. I've got one and I can't even hear it when I ride. She says it's not obnoxious when I ride by the house. Neighbors say it sounds great. I have some drone when I ride through the 10 mph lake but it's only a seven minute ride through there. Haven't thought about ear plugs or anything like that.

    Tommy Jordan posted some info regarding modifying the stock system to flow as well as a FF without all the noise:

    I'll be doing that... nothing better than free mods!

    Because once I cut my hull, I'm done. Can't undo it. Just being really careful.
    Oh and thx for the Tommy Jordan link. I think I'll just try that and worry about it not being loud enough heh.
    Thanks!

    It'd be hard to ride with a boot sticking outa my ass. I could do it, just would get tired having to stand all the time.

    Im sure it wouldnt be much of a job too fill in the hole if not happy.

    a good ski re-pair shop should could do it and you wouldnt even know you had a hole there
