Wonder if there will be any aftermarket exhaust companies make any exhaust for these CTX's? I wouldn't mind to have just a little more rumble from mine.
I agree on what we get stock. Especially when decelerating down a hill, it's like a feast for the ears. I love how it has a lot of bass without being necessarily loud volume-wise. Plus I love the fat short cans. I don't see myself ever swapping the exhaust out.I actually like the rumble that's there. Get rid of the sound of George Jetson's car and it would be just right for me.
I completely understand how important the sound of a motorcycle is to the owner - and just how subjective the whole issue is. And I say "to each his own"... (though I have never understood the "loud pipes save lives" crowd).I wish every vehicle on the road was as quiet as an electric car.
I had a VTX 1300C that I did the drilling mod to the stock pipes. I drilled 7 holes in a circular pattern in the end of each pipe, 14 holes total. I listened to the bike after each hole was drilled and 7 became the magic number. It wasn't too loud an obnoxious. It was enough to hear the single pin crank of the V twin which had a similar sound to a Harley, not exactly, but pleasant. I like the idea of at least hearing the exhaust note, most Hondas are too quiet in my opinion.
