How bad is the drone from a FF Exhaust
Looking for some first hand knowledge here. I've read about 1,000 posts about the aweful drone of adding a FF Exhaust....is it really that bad ? What Rpm's are the baddest for drone ? I personally always add exhaust to all of my vehicles, I love the deep throaty sound of a V8....so I understand exhaust drone in an enclosed cab of a car or truck, but out on the water ? I really wanna do a FF exhaust but not if it's gonna be as terrible as some make it out to be.

I have the FF on my VXs.....Its more annoying than anything and comes in between 3500 to 5000 rpms.....I RARELY ride in that rpm range......

I'd say around 4k rpm's it seems to be the worst, atleast with a thru hull exhaust. I can't speak for the FF with use of the stock location. I have no problem with it because I'm rarely ever in the range of the annoying drone long enough for it to be an issue to me. If you want to cruise around and 20mph or so then I'd say you wont like it but if you're running 40, 50, 60 mph out on the water then you'll probably like it.

I have a few buddies that had ff on there vxr and fzs, they took them off and sold them since it was bad, one went with the riva rear and waterbox and one did the tommy jordan mod

I like the FF exhaust sound... Wish it was louder tho!
It goes away once you go WOT

I was looking at the Tommy Jordan mod, doesn't seem like it would do much of anything since the huge plastic chamber is still left in the system....how much louder than stock is the Tommy Jordan mod compared to a FF setup ?

i have the ff on my FZR and Its not too loud....sounds good, like a pick up truck with twin turbo mufflers............you can always reverse it if its too loud for you.

Is anybody running the R&D FF exhaust or does everyone run the Riva exhaust ?

The ff isnt bad at all, I dont know why people knock it so bad. Sure, 3k RPM is annoying.... but when are you ever only riding at 3k RPM. Anything over 5k all you hear is the wind and anything up to 3k isnt bad at all.
I run the riva ff on the stock water box.
