Ive got the Arrow Thunder, and it has a DB killer, but when I bought the bike it was not installed. It will slip right in, but I do not see a way to secure it. Do I need to remove the pipe at all? How does this stay in?

It's held in by a snap ring. If your missing it you might have to source one. I'd send you mine if I was home to do so.

If you get in a bind and no one has any, let us know and we'll get a couple ordered for you.

Tell ya what! Thats a deal, i will browse the website again and put it together with other stuff...just what I needed, an excuse to give you more money! And hey, I love giving you money!

(BTW, the barends are AWESOME!, Thanks!)

Your better off leaving it out unless you need it for something it does make it quieter but it feels different with it in

I took mine out this morning just to see for myself. That thing gave me a headache in traffic. I'm with John on this. I've been Riding with the DB killer in for a year plus and I notice no difference in useable power. Just Makes the sound bearable. Mind you I had an RC51 as did John. It's not that were not accustomed to loud pipes but the resonance is just not my cup of tea. Maybe mid day on a rip in the twisties buy pre coffee, no

i felt a difference in power and throttle response immediately after taking mine out. It is pretty loud, i ride with earplugs most of the time anyway. That is more for wind noise, but also helps with the exhaust.

Dyno's with and without DB killer showed on mine there is a mayor difference. Not only max power, but also A/R changes a lot.
Actually it needs a different mapping for each situation, without or Db killer installed
