After a few hundred miles, the Roadhouse system became distinctly louder. Roadhouse told us our pipe was one of the early production pipes that did not receive enough overlap on the fiberglass packing in the canister. Pipes currently being shipped should not suffer from this problem, though all glass-packed pipes do need to be repacked periodically. Although it never backfired while we were riding, the Roadhouse pipe frequently emitted a little poof, pop, and occasional bang when the engine was shut off after a long ride. We also heard the sound of dragging metal more frequently when making right-hand turns. Although we never touched the pipe down hard enough to lever a wheel off the ground, riders who cruise corners at a spirited pace should be forewarned their floorboards will no longer touch down first.
