    1300 waterbox quieter than 1200?

    Is it true that the 1300R waterbox with the extra box on the side, is quieter than the 1200R waterbox, when running FF? I am weary of the noise with the 1200 WB on my 1390 and FF, but fear detonation if I put the SS back in. Any comments would be appreciated.

    The 1300 water box is more quiet than the 1200.
