    Radiant Cycles shorty GP exhaust

    Has anyone had any experience with these

    Radiant Cycles Shorty GP Exhaust Motorcycle Slipon Short Muffler Pipe 2012-2018 NC700 NC700X NC 700 X BLACK https://www.amazon.com/dp/B075Y3N2VD..._dDp-CbTY8D2CT

    I searched the forums, and found only 1 post from 5 years ago where this model was briefly mentioned. Didnít see anything else, apologies if I missed it. Looking for something that is not obnoxious but a better sound than stock.

    I think you could get a good idea of how it'll sound with this by simply removing the stock muffler.

    If you want your bike to sound like diarrhea in a truckstop bathroom, the Radiant exhaust is for you. The only way these sell is people wanting something cheap. I guarantee that 75% of the people who bought this exhaust were disappointed the first time they fired up their bike after installing it.

    If you want the sound of a $500 Yoshimura carbon exhaust, buy the $150 Danmoto carbon can (or the stainless finish). Sounds virtually identical to my Yoshi. Exhausts always sound better in person too, as compared to video.

    And here is my Yoshi for comparison.

    I don't mind that sound of the shorty in the youtube video. I too thought it would be screaming and popping like your average straight pipe, not bad though. i got a chinese akro copy, off ebay, I love it, throaty, just enough to hear it with a helmet on at speed. Few options too, from very quiet w plug and silencer, silencer (how I'm using it, sounds like stock non obnoxious harley) then just the muffler, really cool, little loud for me after a while, medium loud poppy sound.

    Any chance you could share a link? I'm curious what you found that would work.
    Did you need any kind of adapter/pipe extension to make it fit?

    This Two Brothers M2 Black Series Exhaust System Honda Ruckus 2002-2019 - Cycle Gear is what came on mine. I am not sure what all if anything they had to do to get it to work. All I have done to it is add a USFS approved spark arrestor. I like the sound of it, but I may be biased.

    It is disturbing to think that 25% of riders might prefer the sound of diarrhea in a truckstop, but I guess it depends on what is being compared; and just a bit less so knowing that it is used as a point of reference.
