About, the noise, well...it is just noise. Paul has a whole page about the exhaust valve in its website, complete with maps, and concluded it is mostly for noise regulations. The stock mapping for the valve just does not make any sense, ….not to me... It is all over the place and changes with gears. From wide open at idle, to almost close in some gears, at low RPMs …
...Yeah, I have the Woolich software, and had it disabled all together once, but knowing than restricting the exhaust at low RPMs helps drivability, (non-restricted exhaust is only needed after 6K rpms) I chose to enable it, but completely remapped it to what I think it should be. Namely; equalized all gears, including neutral, and open the valve gradually, from 40% at idle to 100% at 6K rpms. ...completely opposite than stock,...... and am still experimenting with it.
...would this fix your "problem"??....not likely. We all hate different things that irritate us, or have different obsessions. Am not after more power,.,,, the bike already has more that I could handle......and like the mellow bark of the stock exhaust, thus am more interested in improving driveability at low speed than anything else....noise,....well, I wear ear plugs, always, against the wind noise, and I can only says, I like what I hear at idle, and like it when it revs in gears, after the clutch bites....
