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.
