The before and after. From stock shoot gun both on the side type, to free flow dual under the seat type. I must say both are equally good, but stock unit look better from the right side only since both silencer are on the right side. From the left, the new Zard exhaust is much better.
I must say the new look is meaner. More street fighter like compare to the stock. The rear tyre is more exposed, and with the Monster fat rear tyre is just very nice.. hmmm.
No more cat converter that I think is the ugliest part of the Monster, bar none.
I also like to view from the back, like a rocket launcher! Caution, don’t stop behind me if you don’t want to feel the exhaust gas.. hahaha.
Zard I think is the only manufacturer that made “round” under seat silencer. Arrow made round silence, but both on the right side. Termi made under the seat silencer but both are not round. Hence the decision to go to Zard.
The titanium finish is also very nice. Compliments the front fork that also has the same color. Other version is Carbon Fiber, but I think the Titamium is much better.
The only complaint I got was the missing manifold (manipol). Apparently the unit also for the S4Rs that has short stock manifold. Zard do not provides this short manifold, fortunately that sort part can be made locally.
Also no more catalytic converter, just mid pipe directly to the silencer. I know this will violate the Euro 3 but heck I got no problem with that!
The sound you ask? Loud! But I like! Low and with that rumble, sweet. Totally different with that of Harley’s sound. When you open the throttle, the sound is awesome! I do hope the neighbour don’t mind.
All and all, I must say I’m happy with the mod. What next… hmmmm let see. Continued..
