Exhaust issues.

Strange question, suddenly I noticed my exhaust has gotten a bit quieter than before. It's an 02 r6, with a Yoshi exhaust. What could cause this to happen?

Re: Exhaust issues.

It seems a bit, but even highway pushing 8k on the tac it isn't seeming as loud as before.

Re: Exhaust issues.

Did you get a new helmet? Is it windy-er (windier) "fuuk brain fart" in your area?

Re: Exhaust issues.

Hah. No, I'm not an idiot. I would realize it if it were due to natural causes. I may just throw on a two brothers pipe and be done with it.

Re: Exhaust issues.

Maybe, but I enjoy the deep mean growl, now it seems my engine is doing all of the growling which isn't a bad thing pursue.
