i think it's worth it. the sound is cool and you don't have to spend a penny to do it. esay to do and you don't like it just put it back in. but you won't. no benefits from it, but it does sound cool. and don't bother with the gpmoto elbow, cause it covers up the sound. i had the elbow but it didn't sound any different. so i just took it out and ran a small piece of pvc pipe to the fender.
