V&H CS1 on my 08 ZX-10R

I just finished putting on my new Vance and Hines CS1 exhaust on my 08. I wasn't really looking for any more HP, but wanted an attractive pipe to augment some of my polishing. The lines on this new exhaust is tight and sounds great. A huge improvement (obviously) over the stock setup. It was $399 from Superbike Toy Store and it only took a week to get to Germany. Let me know what you think of it.

I think it looks great. It is my understanding that V&H is really working on rebuilding their rep....

I agree, and this is the first time I ever saw a bike that I liked w/ polished rims/ lips. But I would for sure rock this...

It does look good. A CF version would be sweet.

There are a few more items I want to polish, but don't want to get carried away with it. I tried to post my video of the before and after exhaust note, but didn't work out. It definately sounds better on the quick revs. I couldn't scream it out b/c of the neighbors so I will have to wait until I get her out on the autobahn (its still raining here).
