Question IXIL vs MIVV

Hi all,

I'm stuck...And was hoping if someone has experience with one of these:


Both have fantastic sound (as far one can qualify sound based on a youtube film, created by a cell phone with "excellent" sound recording abilities) and are reasonably priced (around 300 - 400). I know that the Mivv has EG-approval, needed whenever one goes roaming in Germany with the idea of bringing the exhaust in it's original state back home , not sure if the IXIL has one.

I'm curious for your opinions and/or suggestions.

To be honest.....The only reason to get an aftermarket exhaust is for weight loss, looks and sound...Anything besides that and its a waste of money. I went with the Yoshi Carbon Fibre on my 09. If i had to do it over again i would have just left it stock....

Why would you left it stock whenever you could do it all again?
I was also wondering, how about the lambda sensor? Can it easily be disconnected and reconnected to a aftermarket link pipe?

I've left all THREE of my V mufflers stock. I don't see any reason to make more noise, the power is MORE than adequate, and saving a 'few' pounds...? Have a good "dump" before you ride.

Yes to your question; AS LONG AS the new system has the welded 'bung' to attach it.

Well, here I am... Stubborn as hell, but with the very profitable GBP at the moment, I've treated myself with a Mivv Ghibli from Ebay

What are you trying to do Eddie, rival Weljo for the Too Much Information award?? This one is my grin for the day.

Forty years away from 2 wheel fun. Sure is great to be back smelling the roses!!!

I am on the side of quiet. After market exhaust = noise. The only argument I can make for changing exhaust is to open the bike up for better performance. If performance is what you want go ahead and change exhaust and go to track day.

Cheers,

Charlie
