Hey SP2,
Nice Pic! Have you ever scraped the stock pipes on the track?
I know alot of guys on this list might disagree, but I think the stock exhaust looks good on the RC. The finish is nice and the cans look kinda 'beefy'.

+1 on that. In my opinion, nothing beats the overall angles the stock exhaust makes on this bike. I wish some aftermarket maker just replicated the angle of the mid pipe tubing and added their can. I would buy that in a heartbeat.The stockers are not an eye soar on the RC. It just sucks that they are soooo quiet. And for the record, I run the stock blinkers too. I figure it helps me if I ever need to hit the anal cops out here with harassment. One town near me has a reputation for busting sport biker chops. I hope that never has to happen.

EvilTwin-05 This has been discussed and they for no HP gains and the sounds was shiety. They are heavy but cheap.

mattmansell Good question, I have been looking at doing this, but the angle of the outlet makes it very hard. The only way that I see is to cut the can at the weld, but even with this, I don't see how you won't completely destroy the baffle. Does anyone have any good ideas?

Do you know if anyone has ever cut and cored them for a little more sound without ruining how the bike runs?

Check out the leo vinci slip-ons. The quality is very high, gave me a big improvement in the low and midrange and not nearly as loud as other that I have heard.

Color-rado great pic.... i had to replace my front turns.... but the rears are still stock....

dillinger09 still stock here . nice pic
05-17-2006 11:29 PM
RicardoA my point exactly

I'd rather put 200 to 300 on new tires than an undertail :twocents
05-17-2006 11:23 PM
twinphil signal upgrades are low on my list. I've changed the gearing and put on different tires, and that is more than enough to keep a good pace on the street.

RicardoA Great pic!

RicardoA They have a good site. I would say the best picture site out there!

The page has an error right now. I'm pretty sure the pic will pop out later on.

twinphil I'm definitely ordering some pics, Darryl (killboy) uses some high quality stuff, so an 8x10 should look good hanging on the wall
