When I bought my bike, it came with a full Hindle system on it - complete with carbon fiber can. Im not a big fan of carbon fiber, so I want to change it. To me it looks like the 'carbon fiber' part is just a sleeve around the metal part of the can. It seems like if I were to pop out the rivets holding the carbon fiber sleeve on, there might be a nice shiny finish underneath. Anybody try this?

If you pull off the carbon all you will have is packing material flying out. Leave it alone and get a ti can if you don't like it.

Sleeves on cannisters can certainly be changed with no ill effects. Call Hindle, tell them it's on the way and tell them to swap it for a titanium/aluminum sleeve. They CAN and WILL do it if you ask, probably for a cheap fee too.

I should be getting a full system shortly, with a SS can - I'd be willing to trade for your carbon unit.

How do you like the sound of the Hindle on the 1000RR? I had one on my F4i and loved it, but haven't heard in on the '04 Blade yet.

I have!! i was at a local track in Canada and one of the local racers had a 1000RR with a hindle full system on it, not sure if it's a proto system or a "special" system, but DAYUM it sounded sweet.. i've had a Hindle on my F4i and I used to ride with Hindle's daughter.. so we both had the same system but her's was louder.. much louder in fact.. not D&D annoying loud but it sounds like a finely tuned race bike built with no budget in mind..

So, the 1000RR sounded amazing, bottom line it made me grin ear to ear...
