Hornet MIVV Exhaust

Installed a MIVV exhaust from PJ's Parts on the Lil' Yellow Hornet. Love it, looks outstanding, lighter and far less bulky. Sounds even better, not too loud but has a nice rasp to it, really screams at 14,000 rpm. Bike runs excellent, feels stronger from a seat of the pants perspective.

Looks good. I love that little yellow hornet. The bracket sticks out though. Maybe paint it black?

Not a bad idea. I'm going to take it apart later this month to get some powdercoating done, might try blacking out the exhaust bracket then.

Ok, here ya go. This was my first attempt at making a sound clip, used my Sony DSC-W70 digital camera. I hung it around my neck and ran it up through the gears, got too noisy once I got up to speed, but here's the first part of the clip...

I'll have to refine my technique, need some wind protection on the camera, and would be nice if I could fix it in place so it's not recording my jacket.

Any hints or ideas?

Looks great! The X-Cone design lightens the rearend's look.

On my 919's dual MIVVs, the mounting hole is vertically elongated. When mounting, I pushed the exhaust within a 1/2 inch of the tail section bodywork thus tucking in the exhaust and almost hiding the bracket. At least the welded-on bracket isn't a full strap as most aftermarket slip-ons have.
