Is the Taylormade exhaust worth the money?

I need an exhaust and fast! Thinking about going for the Taylormade because it looks great and from what I hear sounds awesome. All that matters to me is I want something small that doesn't come out much further than the foot peg and I don't want it to be too loud. I want it to sound good but I think the m4 is too loud. Any ideas? Where should I look to buy something? Can I find a Taylormade used?

No. Their products are over-priced junk. Much like Hotbodies products, they look the part, but are poorly made. Don't waste your money.

I may not be perfect, but at least I don't ride a Suzuki.

Nice looking exhaust, but not worth the high price

its not loud, doesnt extend much beyond the footpeg and shows some really nice gains through the rev range.

Question: why do you need an exhaust so fast? Did you break yours?
