Has anyone removed the exhaust resonator? You know, the little can that is inches from the exhaust tip. I'm sure that there won't be a power gain. I'm wondering what it will sound like. I also don't loke the fact that the tip comes out the back. I would rather see it come out behind the rear tire.

About midway between the resonator and muffler there is a band clamp that lets you remove the the last section of the exhaust that includes the resonator, but leaves the muffler.
I removed it and did not notice any difference at all. I did not leave it off long, but for the amount of time it was off I didn't notice anything.

I took mine off simply because I didn't like the exhaust tip. I never have liked exposed tips.

No difference in the noise.

thats what they do when they are first turned on, oil is not as viscous so the pressure is higher. Takes 15 mins or so before it just hits norm on acceleration
