    Riva free flow exhaust vs rear exit.

    Hey guys. Can anyone tell me the difference in sound between the riva free flow exhaust vs the rear exit one. I have a 2015 fzs. A few guys I know have rear exit and it sounds great wondering if the high flow out of the stock hole sounds similar

    No, free flow out of the stock location sounds like crap. It drones and is very annoying. Leave it stock or do the rear exit.

    I have this on my ski, really annoying, I don't really want to go rear exit. Any other options other than stuffing stock exhaust back in?

    Anyone have problem with rear exit and warranty? I really want it but I have 5 year warranty. And it says any modifications to the hull will void Warranty

    I had my clutch fixed under warranty with a rear exhaust and no problems doing so. I'm sure there are some dealers out there who may have an issue with it but mine certainly didn't.

    Never heard the R&D exhaust in person but I do miss my Tommy Jordan exhaust mod, quiet with just a little kick. Good first step for most in deciding whether to go rear exhaust or not.

    Any "Free flow" exhaust will drone due to the exhaust dumping into the pump tunnel and resonating.

    Rear exhaust is the best way to go. Sounds nice and clean and looks bad ass. Not to mention it cleans up the inside of the hull a lot.
