Smart looking bike, I really like the solo saddle on the B5  ;)

Had a reverse come megaphone on it when i got it.  Although being shorter it was convenient for rear wheel work it was too loud (i like quiet) so the OE one went on and i must say that i like the noise.  Still sounds like a proper old single but doesn't deafen  :)
Most times i'm on the bike for a couple of hours plus, so i really want the best solution to prevent fatigue.
I know the OE one looks a bit too long so i will be trying one of these some time, http://www.ebay.co.uk/itm/ROYAL-ENFIELD-BULLET-350-500cc-EXHAUST-SILENCERS-TO-FIT-MODERN-BIKES-/321146126767?pt=UK_Motorcycle_Parts_13&hash=item4ac5cd01af
My guess is that it will be between the OE and the Rev Cone in noise level.

If you get the silencer from Feked, please give us a review. I have looked at their products; but living on the wrong side of the pond makes for an expensive experiment.
