best exhaust

does anyone have experience with multiple types of exhaust on the vtr? any opinion on which one sounds the best (as if it doesnt sound awesome stock) or which exhaust performs best. im just tossing around some ideas on getting some exhaust in the future. thanks

most of the slipons are supposedly good for 3-5 hp and don't specifically require rejetting. You lose a bunch of weight, which is very nice and you can go to high mounts if you like that look better. I used to have staintune slipons which i really likeed the sounds, plus they had inserts to go quieter or louder - but many don't like the shiny stainless look. The sounds are all over the place and as you know its so subjective its hard to define. My exhaust currently is obviously the best one to get, because it sounds the best and weighs less than air and in effect makes the bike even lighter, and makes me a much better rider, and slightly better looking too........... OK maybe exagerating a bit there ............. but its a full system and on a stock engine there is zero performance gain going full vs. slipons.

Talk about opening up a can of worms. You will get a ton of different responses i am sure to help you make an educated VTR owner decision.

Personally i am running High Mount Jardine RT-One Street baffle slip-ons. Had them on for about 25k miles with zero issues. I did re-jet and do have K&N filter with FP 4 degree ignition adv and no smog crap.

Good luck on your decision...

Advantages of slip-ons:
1. Less weight
2. The sound
3. The look

I went from stock to Yosh carbon's to Jardine RT-1 high-mounts.
The Yosh sounded awesome and somewhat quite and super light.
The Jardine are pretty loud, sound mean and I like the look for the high-mount.

So, I guess it really comes down to personal preference.

Yup. I have a set of Vance and Hines SS2R aluminum exhaust on my shawk. It's REALLY loud, and has a nice growl on it. It does set off alot of car alarms though... so... i guess it's a mixed bag.

KG

FWIW, I like'em.

I have Two Bros C2 Stainless Steal cans. I set off lots of car alarms. The power increase was very noticeable as well. It was a lot peppier with hard roll ons around the 3500 rpm mark. Low rpm's I don't notice much. Some of the exhaust companies have recordings on their websites of what the cans sound like on certain bikes. It isn't an exact match, but it may help you narrow down your search. Two Bros has switched to a new design evidently, so I may actually be no help at all. I suck. I'm Sorry.

Dosen't get real hot, kinda like carbon fiber, as a matter of fact you can touch the mufflers after ridding for a while, it's packed with some kinda fiber glass material used in a steel plant.

hey guys I have a leo vince full exhaust and I also cut them in half!! The sound stands out among many!! It also looks way better as a high mount and gives a good view of the contour of the bike!

I'm a moron, after I edited it for size I deleted the original, guess that was a bad idea.

that undertail is really awesome. so far the leo vince and the jardine high mounts seem like my two better choices. i dont want to pay for yoshimuras. i dont want to pay for anything, but ill have to eventually.
