Default My EX500 Pics

I just got the Hindle 2-1 system on the other day...so I grabbed my camera tonight and decided to take some pics of my bike to post on here. Let me know what you guys think. It's a left-side exit exhaust, so it's a little odd.

It sounds mean, REAL mean. Deep down low. I haven't heard it revved up real high since it needs to be rejetted/tuned and doesn't pull up top right now. It's a little deeper than I'd like it up top...but it still sounds nice. Totally mean sound. The midrange is INCREDIBLE..it LEAPS. With the tune tomorrow, it should pull quite a bit better. The weight difference is also substantial--believe it or not, you can actually FEEL it. Only downside is you can tell the balance is thrown off. I want to keep going to the right when coming to a stop.

Nice pics Filip....you're giving me some competition! Those clear front lenses look WAY better. I might just do that if I get too lazy to do a pair of flushmounts to better match the rear.

DarNinja: Unfortunately I don't have any servers or anything anywhere that would allow me to post a video...but if you're online frequently, I have a cable modem and my digital cam will take video....so if you've got a decent connection, IM me sometime and I'll go grab some video. My AIM is ADayLatePenance

And if you want to know what it sounds like...listen to a 4-stroke, 2 cylinder 4 wheeler, like a Honda 400EX. It sounds really similar. Not very pretty up top, but loud, deep, and AWESOME at low rpms. People turn to look at it now cause it sounds so different.

I'll answer for him just in case he doesn't see...my subscription to this thread isnt even active anymore and I was the last poster.... That pic is with his Sarachu 2:2... I think that exhaust is hand-made in some other country, just can't remember where. I want to say South America but I don't know why....

Sarachu's are damn mean pipes....they're the deepest I've heard yet on the 500. My Hindle system sounds cool, but it doesn't have nearly the bass note nor the volume that Sarachu's have.

lol, yeah... I didn't get the notification

Sarachu is made in Brazil and can be purchased ONLY for ex500. Look in the thread about "Parts Galore". There is a section with all exhausts available, and the places that sell them.

Good luck...

Wow I wonder what Hindles reasoning for the left side exit was.??? Back in the "day" like 1987 or so Yoshimura had left side exit exhaust for the Ninja 750R and Muzzy exhaust for the ZX11's were lefties as well. Probably to clear the oil sump without alot of pipe bendage. Bendage is that a word??? Is now...

how much did your exhaust run you... Are they sleves or a whole new system? I'm thinking about putting something on mine next summer.
