Difference between RG3 and OEM exhaust explained in pictures

Installed my RG 3 today. Took the opportunity to take some side by side shots with the OEM pipe (silver tips) and RG3 (black tips). As you will see, when looking from the exit of the pipe, the OEM pipe is way more tapered and restrictive. Seen this question raised several times, so hope this explains.

biggest rip off ever they charge you 1200 pounds for slighty larger tips plus they weigh the same

Nope, I sourced them from Carl (CAG). Way cheaper...

I still would love to hear the RG3's in person, because on videos it doesn't sound much different from the stock ones.

Deff. hasn't convinced me to spend so much money for just a little more louder sound....

They are louder than stock, no question about it. But nowhere near the sound of my Jap bike with Two Bros cans.

They're not just bigger tips, the whole workings are a larger diameter
