I've had my 07 Custom for about 2 months. I love the way it looks and handles but the tick is driving me crazy. I tried ear plugs and that helps, but most of my rides are 30 minutes or less and I wouldn't typically wear ear plugs. Plus I like to hear the exhaust note. Which brings me to my question. I am looking at after market exhausts to cover the tick. Will this work? If so, what exhaust is recommended that won't be so loud as to set off car alarms and piss off the neighbors? If I get after market pipes, do I HAVE to do any other mods such as air filter of fuel intake? Can a novice mechanic install the needed pipes and/or mods?
