Have you tried putting baseball cards in your spokes yet?

Good idea! Thanks

Sounds fun! But seriously, I commute to work from downtown Dallas to about 20 miles north of it during rush hour. It is a river of cars and I need to be noticed to help with safety.

I understand that completely! Might I suggest looking into a headlight modulator; you want the attention of cars around and ahead of you, flashing lights does the trick nicely.

...maybe put the reflectors back on.

I thought the 2006 didn't have an exhaust flap. My 06 CBR600RR didn't. Besides, it wouldn't be there once you put a full system on like you did if there was one.

OP is referring to the intake Flapper mod which nullifies the low speed induction noise baffle in this case mate. OE 04-07s have an exhaust butterfly valve while the 08+ OE systems have a bypass valve (essentially the same sort of deal). You are correct that once a slip-on or full exhaust system has been installed that valve would no longer be present; though that's not what is being discussed presently.

sound advice.... the headlight modulator would do more then the sound ever will.


remember.. the sound is BEHIND you.. by the time they can hear you, its too late to matter anyway.
plus, they design cars to be quiet. they try their best to insulate the interior from outside sounds.. you can make a bike loud enough to make the rider go deaf, and the traffic around still will barely hear them... and still not hear them coming up.. but only when they're next to them.

loud sound is a horrible concept for "safety". Just admit you want it to sound louder because you think its cool, and move on with life. lol.

Haven't been able to work on it again yet. On the road.

Thanks for the light modulator tip. Good point. I will have to look into it.

How exactly would vice grips + hammer work? I did try vice grips... kind of shredded/pinched the lip of the baffle. If I could get it out more than 1/8 inch I would be able to get a better grip with the vice grips, but that's about all I can get it out. What would I do with the hammer?
