My VX is not loud at all with the TJ mod and no drone. Also, I have ridden Julio's modded VX with his rear exhaust and Riva waterbox. I didn't think it was too loud either. Sounded really good from the rider position. I just don't want to cut a hole in my ski for the rear exhaust...YET...R&D has a new exhaust mod out for the VX, but I don't know anything about it. It appears to be the same mod as Riva's free flow, but R&D claims no drone. IMO, the rear exhaust is the way to go as far as performance is concerned and the noise is gone out the back into your buddies face.

The "drone" I am referring to is the resonation of the exhaust . It makes a very annoying "hum" that fluctuates up and down with engine rpms. I promise you it will drive most people crazy on a long ride. The "drone" is what most riders complain about from the free flow exhaust set up. There are ways around this annoying "hum", one is which is the TJ mod, or if you must have the free flow, the OEM resonator box (the small one most guys throw in the trash), can be put back into the exhaust system using a "T". Some of my friends says this works well to eliminate the noise.
