Got the exhaust from indysuperbikes yesterday, nice quick free shipping and a price I couldn't find close anywhere else, nice! Anyways, install is pretty easy, although i learned kawi puts their rearset bolts on MUCH tighter than the header screws...
Great looking exhaust and quite a bit louder than OEM.
It's weird, i got used to the sewing machine hum... when i started her up with the new can on there i was like
....If Satan manifested himself in exhaust pipe form this would be him lol.
Couple of things so far... its not tremendously loud until you give it gas, in which it begins to howl at the moon. Another thing i noted that its quieter doing 30mph in town in 3rd than at idle
So far i'm not completely sold on it, but that's mainly because of the type of riding i do (ripping down backroads rather close to town on my breaks at 3am in the morning)... it's rather louder than i thought it would be, but some call that a good thing, and it sure does put a smile on my face when i get her crankin.
Oh performance wise... i can't really say much yet except it's lost a wee (and i mean wee) bit on the lower end... wheelies don't come as easy but i'm fairly sure 60 pops up on the speedo quicker (or maybe i'm just too busy listening to the exhaust)
I told myself when i bought the thing that if i didn't like it i could always toss the car muffler that came with it back on, and i stick by that. But so far the car muffler will stay in it's storage spot in the barn lol.
Internet pictures do this exhaust NO justice... it looks EVIL!!!!!!! IMO best looking exhaust for the V on the market.
The one thing that does make me a little uneasy is driving through town... during the day im not tremendously concerned but i do fear that i i get a little too enthusiastic with my right hand, every LEO in town will be haulin arse in my direction....and i really loathe driving anything in fear of tickets...
Oh another thing, deer (and any animal for that matter) no longer just looks at you...they run like hell! in about a half hour of driving i had 3 cats, a bunny, a skunk, countless deer, and a raccoon, run away, far away from the evil that was coming down the road... Animals definitely notice you more!
Anyways we'll see...no backfiring issues so far (hasn't done it once)...if i come across any more pros/cons i'll post em here
