mpp12 Im sorry to tell that, hope I don't offend anyone.....

there is a reason you don't see race bikes with stock headers.

mpp12 I have watched different dyno graphs slip on tuned vs full tuned, almost same hp but the way they get there is very very different. 2 diferent bikes...

Yep, paid $250 at SportbikeTrackGear. They even give you $12-15 in rewards (store credit) when you buy it. In the end I have a great sounding titanium exhaust that does the bike justice.

I reused the graphite gasket that the instructions tell you to discard, other than that itís very straightforward.

Honestly I may never upgrade the muffler, it sounds great and looks pretty similar to a lot of aftermarket exhaust options.

trackaddict I thought about doing the same thing last year. Looks good to me. I just had spare exhaust parts laying around and pieced together my exhaust.

Eventually I will buy an Akra slip on to complete the system, for now this is working great for me.

If noise is the issue most come with a silencer insert to help quite them down some but still keep a good notice tone and alot more of the power than if the cat was still there. Why do you have to keep the cat at this time?

Thanks. I am still some time away from getting a Woolich for the bike. Dont want to de-cat it and run the risk of running lean without a flash.

I wouldnt touch the claimed "tuners" here in India with a barge pole when it comes to an ECU flash. In a couple of months will source the Woolich and will de-cat at that point.
