Hello All,
I've noticed sisnce adding the Cobra pipes, that there is a significant amount of pinging and clanging after I shut off the bike. Sounds like the pipes cooling off. Since my stock pipes never made this noise, I was wondering if it was normal?

Thanks...

My stock pipes do that. As far as I can tell, it's just due to them cooling off.

My pipes did that at first but after some heat and cool cycles the heatshields noise expanding and contracting kind of settled down.
