Re: Muffler delete

Same, couple years ago on my px1. Your driving style will attract more attention than the exhaust note, it’s not super loud. And the highway note is good IMO.
Shorter pipe , less restriction, , save 10 kg, no muffler = improvement in my book
Hope that helps

Yes agree , it's tight. I very carefully use a vise to clamp the top and bottom together after changing the filter and o ring. It's just to engage the o ring between the top and bottom, once this is done the screw ring can be screwed up by hand, and jobs done.
