    07 r-12x to quiet

    my 07 r12x is way to quiet a does anyone make exhaust or have ways to make this thing heard? my friend has an 07 rxp and its way louder and on top of that hes getting exhaust for it and some other mods. and does anyone know where to get handlebars and aftermarket sponsons.
    Thanks
    Markus

    That is one of the best parts about the Honda, they are QUIET. If you want more noise, ride with the seat off.

    Great advice... unless you want to sit.

    I'll tell you this; my bud did quite a bit to mod the exhaust on his F12X... and it really didn't get much louder than stock... so I know you would have to get pretty radical to make it loud.

    can you cut some baffling out of the waterbox? im a kawi guy and thats part of an exhaust mod on mine. also does the honda have 1 or 2 water boxes. you can keep the primary and take the secondary one out if there is 2.

    this is my first ski im just trying to learn. so if anyone has any input or knows where to get parts that would be very helpfull. i would like to start with an impeller (dont know which to get) and maybe handle bars for a better look.
    thanks

    There is 1 water box at the rear left, looks like a round drum, put a blow off valve on it, when you let out the gas, you will hear the turbo pretty good, that always gets the blood flowing and a smile from ear to ear

    Why would you put a BOV on it? BOV's go in the intake track of the engine and not in the exhaust.

    He wants to hear the thing, turbo whine is awesome to listen too
