Finally installed the DanMoto

Got the DanMoto Highwayman this week and installed it myself today. I’m not mechanically incline, so I’m proud of myself. I did get worried when the first start and there was ton of smoke from the headers, it was just new exhaust smell 🤣🤣 Next weekend I should have the BoosterPlug and have it installed. Thanks to Bearslayer for the information. DanMoto also sent me the wrong nut. The thread pitch on it was off and I had to go to Lowe’s to get a new one.

I like it. It’s loud enough that people notice you, but not that loud to annoy your street. I haven’t had any problems with it and it does make down shifting easier with the Booster plug. My wife followed me on her Vulcan S and she said she could hear me downshift and knew to slow down. Overall I’m happy and would recommend it.

Cool, thanks for the reply. Seems many on the forum have gone and removed the pipe after a while, glad to hear that there are a few around that kept it. I have a booster plug on the way as well.

I wear ear buds with the Scala Q Solo and play music. I really don’t care how loud it is. I like it when I’m in the blind spot and know other cars can hear me. My neighbor across the street said he couldn’t hear my bike in when he’s in his house and my next door neighbor can’t hear it when I start it up. I think it’s just people over exaggerated how loud it is, compared to stock it is loud.

excellent. I'm used to loud exhausts, and i do wear ear plugs so i'd imagine it can't be any louder than a zx6r with a m4 gp exhaust. We shall see. Thanks again.

I really love the pipe. Lighter tons more horsepower and it looks great.and if I had a quieter helmet I might not have minded the noise so much. The arrow rebel is slower making power up top. But the bottom in power is pretty close.But you're absolutely right they will hear you coming with the danmoto blind spot or not.

That which does not kill me tends to really piss me off.
