Hi,
Has anybody tried a less restricted exhaust system on their Meteor 350?
I have freed it up quite a bit on the intake by fitting a DNA filter,but now looking to a similar mod on the outake/exhaust.
Any suggestions?
Also,I heard through the grapevine,that there may be a performance cam in the offing,and also a 500 cc big bore conversion kit.?

The muffler comes with 3 reducers, I used the mid size one and it worked for me. No issues on install, just needed to do a trial fit first to make sure it was in the correct position so I could drill a hole in the mounting strap. I also did not need to re-tune the EFI.

That was my other concern. This sounds like an excellent performance mod. I'm going to finalize the purchase of a Meteor 350 (Stellar Blue) on the 15th this month, and I should receive it on Wednesday the following week. I'll wait till after the first service interval to try changing the exhaust (sans cat). Lots of muffler options. I don't want my bike to be annoyingly loud, just a good thumper.

I've been looking at the Red Rooster pipes that seem to be popular in India and are readily available from e-bay. The kits include a link pipe with threaded bosses for the stock heat shield. Is there any way to get just the link pipe and center stand stop brackets without the muffler? I would prefer to use my stock muffler or the RE Straightcut silencer.

I couldn't help myself; I went ahead and bought the Red Rooster PoleStarPro exhaust kit. I decided on the black muffler so that I have the option of keeping my chrome muffler or using the black one that comes with the kit. The silver kit looks good too, but I wanted the finish option.

I got my Red Rooster today. I'm amazed at how fast it got here; Delhi, India to California USA in 5 days (free shipping). The silencer is heavy. It's a large glass packed chamber with a perforated baffle tube in the end. The link tube is stainless steel, nicely made. The center stand stop bracket hardware looks good too. It all came as pictured on the Ebay seller's store. It was well packaged, I think they used half a roll of tape on it. ;-)

I've had the same experiences with Auto Streek.

I had planned to use just the link pipe along with the stock muffler, but the link pipe doesn't match up to it. I had to go full Rooster. The kit and hardware are kind of crude, but with a bit of fooling around I was able to get it installed and buttoned down. It sounds good ;-)
