Yes, You will see it when you have the mufflers off.
I would recomend getting new gaskets for the exhaust.
I also Welded the kit into place and did not use the clamps supplied.
They leaked so I redid the install.

Chad are you ok with the reduced oomph on start-up since you degoated? I pulled the goat to put on the Macs, and was astounded - nay, appalled - at the reduced low-end power. So I pulled the Macs (which looked great), sent 'em to Jon, and reinstalled the stock set-up. Is there anything you did to make sure the low-end still had some getupandgo?

I did not notice any loss in power.
By removing the screen there is no back pressure. The exhaust flows free.

I don't know anybody that has tried.
It will help the air flow and might increase the volume of the exhaust a little.
But that is a guess.

the best of both worlds would be get rid of the stock set up on ebay and get a scootswork bypass and have a muffler shop weld a cross pipe so you have an "H" setup, that would get you off the line punch and get a set of harley dyna mufflers for good sound, just have to fab some brackets for the mufflers.
