Its just metal on metal with the clamp. It should be fine like that.
How do you like the sound of yours?

Still waiting on the oem bracket that holds it in place to come in the mail, so haven't ridden with it yet.
I ask because i put it on there and fired it up just to see what it sounds like at idle and was shocked how much louder it was than the coffman, which is a quarter it's length.
Thought it might be because of an exhaust leak by not using the gasket, but might just be the nature of the TBR. Haven't heard it on the 500, but on the 300 it's one mean sounding exhaust. Everyone who owns one on this forum is dead right, you can't judge the sound of these based on computer speakers. Completely different sound in person.

The quick recording I took of mine sounds like there's a bit of raspiness when you rev it, but in person it's non existent.

I really like my PR-2 just put it on yesterday it’s deep and loud with slip in baffle if you want to cut down the noise. It’s worth the 123 bucks.

Going to have a long hard thing about LED headlight, indicators (not orange casing!!!) and maybe a headlight cowl simmular to the Harley Street 750 / some of the Harley Dyna's.

Probably going to remove he pillion pegs and seat too, this is a one man bike I'm afraid [IMG class=inlineimg]/forum/images/smilies/smile.gif[/IMG]
is that with the baffler on or off it?

I agree with Shorty. Before I decided to go with the TBR, I had also been comparing several aftermarket exhausts for my Rebel and the TBR clearly has the best sound IMHO. But yeah, the price is kinda expensive for a slip-on but I honestly think it's still worth it considering TBR must have done some R&D for that slip-on to fit exclusively for the rebel.
