After Market Exhaust


Recommended Posts



That is an extremely subjective matter.


There are some out there that will say absolutely no, it is a waste of money. Others will say the opposite.


IMO, you must weigh both sides of the coin. Ask yourself what it is you expect to gain by changing the pipe.






I changed my stock slip on on my ST. Why? Purely aesthetics. Yea, I saved a pound or two. Woppdee do! Performance. That isn't any difference and yes, I have seen the marketing brochures saying that there is a difference.


IMO, this is very subjective and you must put a grain of salt with anything you get back as feedback on teh subject and ultimately weigh the lightened pocket book for what you expect to gain. Realistically!!!

Here here! Very well put and, applies to many modifications on any bike or car.

It's what blows the wind up your skirt.

I have aftermarket, zoomy exhuast on 6 of the 7 bikes I own. My RT? Stock exhuast as it's the one bike I want nice and peaceful. A good comprimise are the slip ons with removeable baffle. Be zoomy when you want and then put the baffle back in for near stock, deeper but not much louder tone. 2 of the best with this feature? (IMO) Remus and Staintune.
