Etching on Muffler

Has anyone tried to remove the MV Agusta etching on the stock Brutale muffler? I think it would look cleaner (more racey) without it, what do you guys think?

I was wondering the same thing. I agree that it would look sleeker.

Go for a ride, look in the right mirror and I think you'll find the etching has disappeared.

I have a set of original Brutale exhausts that one of the previous owners of my bike polished so that the logo is not visible (unless you look very closely).

There are some people that liked it. To those of you that do, you can have mine for US$50, as I have replaced them with an Arrow exhaust.

All the etching is, is they put on a sticker and mask off everything they don't want etched. Then they beadblast it or sandblast it to change the texture. Soooooooo you should be able to polish it off but you will probably have to polish the whole can so it will match. I thought about doing it and then etching my own design. But hey thats how I roll.>>>>>>>>>>>>>>>>>>>PILLAR

I've thought about polishing mine. Do you have a picture of yours?

Does anyone know if the 750 pipes and 910 pipes exactly the same?

I do have one, but not one that has the mufflers attached to the bike. I have also just sold them today to a forum member.
