    Recently purchased a 2012 roadster and the owner had done a number of mods to the bike. Not sure if he installed TORs on it or not. How would I tell if he did. It pops a lot on deceleration so wondering if he installed them but didn't get them tuned?

    On the bottom of the can it should say 'For Off Road Use Only" or something to that effect. It is fairly hard to see, a flashlight at an angle may help you find them. You can also find the part number for stock and TORS online and compare them to what you have.

    AS Bob says. Also the exit bore is much larger - sorry can't remember size. Will measure tomorrow.

    You can also do the hearing test, TORs have a nice rumble to them, the stock exhaust sounds like a large sewing machine.:D

    As said above TORS are etched with part numbers and warning for off road use only. Usually on the bottom.

    !k9 is right! They are shorter and you have to look at the bottom pipe to see where it says Not street legal! I've never had any problem with how they sound.
