Yeah, its pretty loud. Its a little louder than a D&D I think, but its not really earsplitting or obnoxiously loud. I like it - its mean as hell, real deep - somewhere between a bad ass ducati, a sportbike, and a muscle car (its really hard to describe, lol). I can always add some fiberglass packing inside the baffle if I really want to quiet it down more. Just would have to pack it in there, then tack on a screen at the end - real easy.
As far as the tire getting too hot, thats a realistic concern, no doubt, but the way they are angled, they should blow out on either side of the tire, so if anything it will just serve to heat up the sidewalls - which really I would think would be a good thing. Who needs chickenhawks, right? lol. If I ever do start seeing some meltage, or notice it getting too hot, I can always just buy some 90 degree pipe pieces from autozone and cut off the straight exit pipe and weld in those to point it off to the side or down or something.
Tuna, the overflow actually mounts up inside the subframe, I just knocked it out of place when I was working. I actually chopped the battery box as small as I could and then moved it as far forward as I could - it sits about half under the tank and half under the seat. Then I mounted the cooland bottle right behind it, up inside the subframe. And I mounted my reg/rec, rear brake reservoir, ecu, and fuel cut off relay all inside the subframe. The wiring runs so that it is all hidden inside the frame and subframe, so when it is complete, I'll have a completely smooth undertail (kinda like the new r6) and all that stuff will be completely hidden from sight. NO coolant bottle, no brake reservoir, no wiring, nothing will be visible when its done. And I tucked all the wires up in the frame as much as possible so the motor looks pretty clean from the side, and you really cant see hardly any wiring from the outside, except stuff that runs to the motor (cant do nothing about that, lol)
