Here I go again! I believe that our exhaust pipes are stainless , not chromed.
Actually they're both. If you crawl up under your bike you'll see the actual exhaust pipes are small diameter stainless tubes. And that's what's coming out of the heads. But they're covered with a chrome shroud. And the same goes for the mufflers. You can see the unequal length stainless tubes under the bike that contribute to the unique syncopated CTX sound at low RPM that smooths out as you get rolling. :smiley-happy0034:Here I go again!

Now you're talking - what a creative solution. I know from my experience fooling around with my CB1000R with a slip on that retains the catalytic converter and a 3/4 Yoshimura system that eliminates the cat that the cat does a lot of the sound dampening. Cool idea. :520:Only way to know is to try it...
Regardless of the outcome you're a rock star for giving it a shot. I'm sure you've heard this but this is a sound clip of an ST1300 with Delkevic glass packs baffles removed.Put 30 miles on it this evening. No noticeable difference in performance. No oxygen sensor problems.
Noticed when I got home that the sound is a little louder than stock, but at about the same “tone”. Probably gonna ride it like this for awhile and decide my next move.
