Grab the Lexx Exhaust with the "Trail Saver" Insert. Might even be quieter than the stocker. Love mine.

Im 38, when i was in my 20s and had a chip on my shoulder, yea i liked loud straight pipes on my harley. Even had a few Honda 4cyl with loud pipes. But these days not so much. I do have the FMF pipe on my KLR, but it was there from the guy i bought it from. I like it, not to loud, gives abit of attitude i guess. (still have a bit o'hooligan in me)
I am my fathers' son and we havent ever been able to leave someone stock. unless, its a classic.

I did upgrade the KLR horn though. I love the bike quiet, but love a loud horn. On the beemers, they sound like a loud old caddie.
As far as a low hard seat goes. Its no difference than if one sucks at sports, and gets to ride the bench all the time. Or putting a lot of time on a wooden bar stool. We could add a lot of time in church on the wooden bench also.
Its the curve of the seat that makes it cool and comfy. Like the old metal tractor seat with all the holes in it to drain water and cool/air the bottom.
Sooner or later, ill come across a good uphostery person and make the KLR seat low and cool, looking, instead of just low, now.

|GoMotor||I think loud pipes give motorcycle riders a bad name. They make us appear to be a bunch of self centered jerks with no regard for others not caring how much their obnoxious pipes bother others.|

On another note, people gripe about the KLR seat. I'd think that HD seat would make one say "Ouch" by the 1st intersection.
