Default Romi-Modified Stock Classic Exhaust

Are any of our Australian forum members familiar with the following YouTube Video of a Romi-Modified 1700 Classic Exhaust?


It seems to sound pretty good, all things considered.

Romi owns Ghost Riders Motorcycles in Hoppers Crossing, Australia.
Has anyone had them perform this mod on their 1700 Classic?

If so, can you describe the process for those who live elsewhere and might want to tackle the mod themselves?

Thanks in advance!

I actually just heard from Romi himself with regard to how he modified these mufflers.

I thought that the black, slash-cut outlet tips looked larger than stock in the video, but at first, I attributed this to camera angle.

Romi confirmed that he surgically gutted the mufflers and installed a new baffle system...probably something like a small glass-pack or cherry bomb muffler.

So, the "tinkering" that the owner refered to in his YouTube posting, was something of an understatement...especially when Romi wants $500 to do the modifications.

It would be much more cost effective to order a set of Cobra Classic Slip-Ons

I'm now torn between ordering the Cobras or using a 1.25" dia. bi-metal hole saw with extension to drill out the three inner baffle plates on each muffler.
