As the chap who sold the bike to you if its Chinoy's kit. If not, its probably an RX135 or a Shogun CDi which wont give you performance to take on a TVS Victor.

Chinoy's kit cost me 8 grand and its worth every penny.

Hey Maverick

Are your two pipes of two different dimensions, or is it just an optical illusion?

You got the first part right. On the second count though, you're mistaken as you dont want two cylinders doing two different things, which is what will happen when their exhausts arent evenly matched. You will still get your output which even when restricted is enough on our roads against other bikes available, but your engine wont be as smooth as it should be.

If what you say is true, it doesnt make any sense to have expansion chambers at all (I dont mean the cuticura tins that go for 'mods' here).
