So I dropped my TV at the workshop today for the 15000km service and while speaking with the owner, a guy with 20+ years experience on tuning bikes for the track I asked if it was possible to increase the sound of the exhaust just a bit while maintaining stock looks, which I like.
He told that they already did such a thing to 4 other TV's.
They basically remove the insides of the muffler replacing them with a pipe connecting the input and output of the chamber, letting some of the sound through with the added bonus of a less restrictive system.
I went for it based on his recommendation and will get the bike back on thursday, I'll share a video to try to show the new sound.

Has anyone here thought/done such a thing?

I wanted to maintain stock look as I really like the side tubes. The modification will cost me 250 so it is alot less!

Sound interesting, same problem with me, looking for exhaust that looks nice as stock pipes do, but nothing even close, they all sounds much better that stock pipes but looks aaaarrrgghhh... :smile2:
Last EICMA i spoke with Akrapovic representative about exhaust for MV Agusta bikes, he sad that Agusta dont sell enough bikes to be interesting for them "they make awesome bikes but not enough", he also sad that they can make me exhaust for MV but it will cost me a fortune... I could not find Termignoni guys, coffie time or something :grin2::grin2:
Anyway looking forward to hear modifications on your stock pipes :wink2:

Any news? Did you make modification to your stock pipes?

I have a QD exhaust. Louder than the factory original and looks fabulous. See attached image. The site is here https://www.designcorse.com/products/veloce-800-qd-exhaust £970 incl VAT. Their service is first class but don't forget to register your exhaust for the 2 year warranty.

Pops and bangs on the over run as well as being quite noisy generally but legal I am told. I love it! Still got the original in case I get tired of the noise though.

One small issue is that you have to remove the bottom 2 slashed ends to get the rear tyre off, not a big deal but a niggly pain. However it's a small price to pay for the angle of the pipes. Also a lot lighter that the original and I am told more power, but I don't think the bikes ECU has been updated. I might look at this once the warranty has expired.

Not on the MV but I did this exact thing to my Raider when I first got it. It was much louder than stock, not a bad thing because stock on the Raider sounds like a Goldwing, and a noticeable difference in power. This is a V-Twin monster. It needs to sound that way. :) Anyway, I ended up putting aftermarket exhaust not to much later mainly because the stock Raider exhaust is really heavy, just one muffler is heavier than the entire new exhaust, and I really didn't like the stock look. But it worked, sounded great and it was relatively easy to do.

The suspense is unbearable ;-). Did you get the mod done? Is a remap required and more importantly, if you had it done, would you please post a video with sound. A number of us are waiting!
Thanks,
Tim

Coming back to this old post. Has anyone tried to mod a factory muffler?
MASantos is not replying and I wonder what the results would be.
I can see a lot of people buy new exhaust but later complain that they are too loud. I quite like the factory one but I would prefer a bit deeper sound.

After thinking about getting an after market exhaust for my tv I have decided to remove my standard exhaust and gut it :shocker:. I started the weekend and have split the main box which turned out to be a right arse due to the the way the baffle plates and restrictor mesh's are all welded in .. Any way I have decided to removed the two baffle plates and then I will re weld back up the box ' I will post up some pics when done and hopefully post up a vid of the sound ..:grin2:

I finally got round to doing a bit more cutting up . ..Inside the pipe goes in about half way into the box and then there are two baffle plates, one which is a mesh and then the 2nd which is a solid plate with two small holes ,all very restrictive and sound deadening !!

Bottom re welded( I had to cut it in 3 pieces just to get it apart :cussing:) and then welded two half's back together .. Unfortunately I have had to get it all mig welded so I am now going to have to paint it .. I must also emphasise I am no exhaust specialist and I have done this as a trial and error experiment and if it works well then it's a bonus :smile2::..If not then nothing ventured nothing gained ..
I post some more when I have painted it and then hopefully do a vid when its running :grin2:

@MrG: Man, we all love projects! This one is an interesting undertaking. Freeing up your exhaust flow is going to lean out your A/F ratio more than it already is. You will probably need to fix that. I don't know who you have on tap to tune your ECU after this mod, but you should probably find someone.

As a suggestion, because paint on heated surfaces is fragile, why not have the box powder coated by a ceramic specialist, like Jett-Hot.

I will probably just spray it with some heat resistant paint as it may not even be to my liking yet .. With regards to re mapping do you think it will need to be done because I see so many people fitting aftermarket exhausts and the general census is that they haven't had to have it remapped ,are you saying it wont be good not to do it ??....I'm not sure as I said this is only an experiment and I'm no expert ..:smile2:
