These shots are taken from 09 Assen Race2.
J.Rea has the standart Arrow, but Checa's look like a gixxer.

They are using different length exhausts to tune the power curve of the engine. Apparently, they power isn't the smoothest on the TenKate bikes and hits pretty hard and they have had to tune the TC to help smooth it out, but it looks like they are trying to tune the engine differently to make the power more useable.

ummmmm with earplugs?
I could only imagine what those guys are attempting to process any given second.

I'd like to hear a little. With the plugs I like to use, one can hear a bit.

imagine that in a post race interview

TV: "So, Carlos, you had problems today, couldn't quite match it with the front runners?"

Checa: "well, the bike was just too loud and I couldn't concentrate on what I had to do. Every time I started catching up there was this annoying throaty pitched squeal coming through my helmet and .FAAAAAAARK it was driving me mad, it's the best I could do"

Bwahahahahahahaha Get freakin grip.
