    '12 FX SHO FF Exhaust Drone

    Hello everyone! Hope things are well with everyone these days. Got a quick question. I am picking up my new 12 FX SHO next week and I was wondering if anyone has tried either the Riva or R&D FF Exhaust systems and if they drone like the FZR does in the 3000-6000 rpm range. I like my through hull on my FZR but with this ski being brand spanking new, I was trying not to hog a hole in it out of the box lol. It will be a stage 2 before long but trying to decide what exhaust route to take. If it drones like the FZR does, I'm going through hull but if the newer hull design somehow doesn't drone, I will go with the FF setup. Any input is appreciated! Thanks

    Im with jetpilot, i dont want to be drilling into the rear of my ski. I am thinking of purchasing the r&d free flow and then getting an exhaust place to fabricate a tee into it so i can attach the stock resonator. Im sure that will make very little difference to the exhaust flow but with out the drone. I will let you all know how it goes and take some pics.

    You should try the RRated free flow I am selling (its in the classifieds). With this piece you don't have to cut up your stock hoses.

    or just do the free mod that is on here somewhere. I did it to my FZS and it makes it slightly louder with no drone at all.

    We all understand it is just one hole, but for those that may want to put it back to factory for any reason what do you do? Have an awful looking block off kit to plug the hole.

    Im in the same boat. I have a 2013 FX SHO and want to do the FF but dont want the drone. More importantly will it give me more performance because if it doesnt then I dont want to waste my time.

    I dont want it for the noise I want more performance. To cut a hole will void warranty as will changing ECU or SC and thats something I dont want to give up.
