Has anyone had Mantra mufflers apart to get some more noise out of the bike? What's inside??
Anyone have a set of Mantra mufflers sitting around they don't need?

I don't know about Mantra mufflers, but when i got my SB6 mufflers polished i opened them up, removed all the old packing and only put one thin wrap of new material in, before riveting them back together... I wanted a little more sound, but didn't want it to drone... I am very happy with the result.

Thanks for that info. I expect the mantra ones are the same. I will try and find another set to modify so I can have "standard puff puff puff" and "sounds like a proper bike" options!
