I did 8 3/8 holes. Sounds better with no helmet. Not really louder, just different tone. Deeper. With helmet it's kinda not good. not sure how to describe it. but my ears ring. If I wear earplugs and helmet, its horrible.
I have to check some other stuff. Cuz I just noticed yesterday that after removing the tins for painting that my front fender bolts were working themselves out. So now I have to check to rear. The front was giving me a clunking noise. So maybe the rear is vibrating.
But I think that the exhaust tone is changing the vibration. I mean this bike has always had a high frequency vibration. My hands get kinda buzzy after a long ride. I got some exhaust of my bro-inlaw harley I am going to try those out. they seem like they will go back further on the bike, so the sound will be further away from me. So the vibrations might be better. I also have bags so they might be trapping the vibrations right now. Also I have been thinking of getting the bar end weights that Kuri makes. That should help there, I hope. But my rear still needs help.
I hate these kinda things.
