Oh yea,

Did you get around to looking at the stock silencer? If you havent, take a look at the bottom of the silencer (above the caliper) They look they have been bashed in by a hammer. When I first saw it I thought the dealer dropped it during assembly, but thats the way they come from the factory.

ok, thanks guys this makes me feel better now. yes, i did notice that the stock silencer did have that mark too. i figured it had to have been designed that way. i put a fmf power core 4 on mine. i like it except for the fact that i have to repack it.

i'll keep ya posted
