Well, I was riding home today, and I noticed about 5 minutes from my house, that my bike was starting to sound... different... much louder.. even seemed to have more oomph then usual... Upon pulling into my garage, I checked my suspicions... I had removed the pipes the day before and put them back on (plan on painting them this weekend to keep them from rusting (yes, it's high-temp enamel 1200 degree).
It appears that I didn't tighten my rear pipe well, and it came loose... :eek: Luckily the nuts were still on, and I was able to tighten it correctly this time (I didn't give the pipes a good wiggle and tighten again last time).

Lesson learned, always double check your work...
and also, if you take off the exhaust, you feel immediate gains!!
