Thanks for the heads up.
I ride my bike every chance I get (pretty much if it's above 40 degrees and not raining) but the T is still technically my daily driver. The sound doesn't bother me at all as it is, but I don't feel like it would go off very well with the woman on road trips. The drone admittedly is kind of bad, but I've gotten used to it. I just love rolling down the windows and getting on the throttle. Really got to love that unrestricted roar...rasp, CIS and all. It's a characteristic of the engine. If only I could drop the drone for the sake of the passenger, without reducing anything else lol.
I may end up doing what you did and just welding it on, and cutting it off if it doesn't work out. I also like the idea of swapping for trips if needed, though I don't really have the luxury of space to store a spare muffler for an extended period of time. I may just wing it with the new setup and see how it goes.
