GT vs Ninja 650 sound
« on: October 31, 2018, 02:58:42 PM »

ninja- HATE IT with an exhaust on the bike
GT650. - added a modified stock exhaust(shorty) and it sound waaaaay better than the ninja.
 so for anyone that is tight on $$$ I it's not a bad free mod.
look way better too.
 I do get some popping on decelleration but nothing crazy.
 just my 2 cent.

side note i'll be taking my ninja 650 to the track this fri (I hope) to see what kind of times I can manage.
mods:
Air filter
TB exhaust
power commander 3
-1 , +2
If I have time i'm going to lower the back (litterally takes all of 3 or 4 minutes)
try to lower the front as well.

with all the gearing
first gear  front wheel come ups when rolling onthe throttle.
second with a little clutch it'll stand right up.
so it's a prety fun bike right now. hahaha

I couldn't agree more about the awful sound of the ninja 650. They sound like someone stepped on a duck.

The v-twin sound for the win!

The new cross-plane yamaha engines sound like a v-twin, while being an inline though. As in the MT07 and MT09. I think they're called FZs in the US.

yeah the first time i'm heard a drive be and thought... that phuker needs some plugs!

 I"m on the fence on that one though. I still like a whistling inline 4

Aside from a V Twin, that cross plane Yamaha R1 sounds pretty darn righteous.

I threw a Radiant Cycles Shorty GP on my naked GT for s&g. I'm actually pretty pleased with how it sounds. Probably not for everyone, but I dig it.
