I managed to take a few pictures after installation, not much video though.




I needed to remove one of the bolts for this plate to fit the mount supplied with the exhaust so I removed the whole thing



I did over 200 miles on the A1 today to get the seat sorted and can confirm that with the baffle in it makes a nice but subdued sound, and last night's 50 mile back lane hoon confirmed that with the baffle out it's loud and makes plenty of pops and crackles  :156:

I will try again to get some video tomorrow, a revving engine got a little too much attention from the neighbours.

Would you say with baffles in it's much different to the stock exhaust?

With the baffle in it has more base to its note and a little more volume but nothing ridiculous, and a couple of small pops at low revs :016:

A common mod on the 850s that works for us too is to replace the resonator with a simple mid pipe.  There are ones specifically for the 900 now all over eBay and Ali.  You keep the tail pipe and lose that huge box under the bike.  It's a simple bolt on mod.

The factory exhaust is all one piece after the Cat so you can't keep the factory tail pipe.



There are systems appearing like the Dominator R with no resonator but I wanted a little less volume even in loud mode without the baffle. Maybe I'm just getting old (40 later this year) but on a blast the volume is no problem but on a 300+ mile day or touring abroad I want to have a quieter ride.

My bad, i found them while searching but never looked that close at the stock system to see if it would actually fit.
