Can the sound?

Thanks Albert. I'm surprised, I would have thought it would be the other way around (quieter with the dual pipes). But I think I still like the dual sound better - less like a single lung engine.

I can think of couple older single cylinder motorcycles I've seen that ran dual pipes. One split inside the head, the other outside.

Mostly styling, I think, but I could be wrong on that.

It will be interesting to see if there is a measureable performance difference and sound between the single and twin pipe at Slime Dog on the 14th.

I remember back to my favourite sounding motorcycle back in 1968. A good friend had a 1966 Honda 255 Scrambler i believe.
It had twin pipes mounted high down now side and souped "Great".....always loved that bike, as my mother would not let me buy a bike, so I had a 59 VW as my "First Car" (37 DeSoto Coupe two months later after turning 16). Didn't get my first bike until I was 30 years old.

I like the the deep thump thump sound of the dual exhaust.
When you plug one side of the dual exhaust it definitely quiets down. It is acting like a dead end j-pipe (aka helmhotz resonator) sometimes used to eliminate drone when running resonator delete or straight pipes in performance exhaust applications.
