Yeah I probably will ... depends if the Corbin gets here in time. ;)

Any idea why the back of the exhaust is different to the other flat style? I heard Suzuki imported two types, one E4 stamped, while the other (your style) can remove the spark arrestor and other bits without a hacksaw. :cool:

I just got an 07 400E great bit of kit goes well alongside the 1150 GSA. The spark arrestor is basiclly a mesh in the rear of the silencer to stop it setting fire to the local countryside (useful here), your right about the noise thogh this is the only bike where I have heard folk fitting after market cans to quieten it down. Mine needs bar risers and I am looking at a 17 or 28 ltr tank for it (Safari http://www.rvaqualine.com.au ).
What is the rear end and light you have fitted?:beer:

The bars you need are 664 Enduro's. I think y2blade has the them as well.

My stock exhaust from 02S is the one you describe. I'm now wondering if they changed it on the S/SM for a quieter one later on? That could be useful as the bike isn't as quiet as the BMW was.

By sheer coincidence I have just completed a CFS Compartment fire fightting course where a spark arrester was used to explain how a 3D water spray flame trap works this the explanation:-

CHAPTER 7 - Extinguishing principles COMPARTMENT FIREFIGHTING
7.1.2 Quenching
One of the effects that can be produced with fine water particles is that of a flame trap. An example of a flame trap is a flame arrester (commonly found on boat engines fitted to the carburettor). The flame arrester is wire gauze that will stop a flame backfiring out of the carburetor barrel. The flame is stopped because the gauze wire is spaced at measured intervals. The distance between intervals is known as the quenching distance, and a flame will be 'quenched' as it tries to pass out of the carburetor. The particles within a flame have a very high velocity that allows the flame to propagate. With a gauze wire placed in its pathway, the flame must pass through the wire in order to propagate. If he gaps in the gauze wire area are at the correct quenching distance, the particles in the flame lose velocity as they enter the gauze and are unable to propagate. When the flame loses velocity, it is quenched. The gauze wire also conducts heat away from the flame; [here are many examples of the application of flame traps, including the Davy mesh in miners' lamps and flame traps in petroleum distribution systems.
