Which muffler for 2009 R6s?

I'm trying to figure out what muffler to buy and install while the bike is in storage this winter. I don't like the look of the stock muffler size, so I'm thinking of either going with the stock muffler from an 08-09 newer R6, the small triangular one seen Here, or the danmoto that I recently came across and like the look of it... http://www.dan-moto.com/DM_US/yzf-r6...oduct-184.html

Danmoto says no tuning is required and I heard with the stock 08+ muffler it isn't necessary but probably should be done. I would rather get the stock 08 muffler but I really don't want to dump money into software, etc., so I wanted to ask if anyone here has experience with either of the two mufflers mentioned and what's required to run as stock. Thanks.

-Ivan

I doubt you'd need to tune anything with just a slipon, no matter what model pipe

Full exhaust is different, but just a slipon/muffler and you should be fine

I bought a delkevic slip-on, modified an 05 header and added a PC V Dynojet. With dyno tuning it makes around 115 hp @ rear wheel and I race it like that.

Leo, graves, or akrapovic. Same power out of all buy the one that looks the best to you. If you want to do a piggy back ecu also you can get one of the cat eliminator pipes but be fore warned you need to cut your stock header up. And you will have a slight flat spot or hessistation in first gear around 3K no matter how you tune it unless you do a gearing change. As you know its a 600 without alot of torque and the full system cuts that torque number down a little lower in the low rpms also.

Pretty sure I have at least 4 different used or new slipons for that bike, and at least one full system in stock. Is your budget the hundred dollar slipon, or are you looking for a quality exhaust?

^^ I chose the two I mentioned simply because I like the look of them best. I really like the smaller size (and shape) of the newer R6 mufflers so that's definitely what I'm leaning toward. I don't like the size of the stock muffler of course, but I also don't really like how big the aftermarket mufflers are for this bike, except the smaller ones like danmoto. I'm not a fan of the short, fat cans either, like the delkevic, but the 14" doesn't look too bad so I'd consider it. Budget isn't a big issue but I'd surely want to stay below $400-450, but again, seems like the ones I like aren't too expensive and I only want the muffler not a full exhaust. Hope that makes sense.

Tune it with the slip - From my experience, the bike never runs the same with Fact Tuning and Non Fact Can - CP can tune that shit for you - Hell, buy your shit from him and work a deal on the tune, homie is just watching Porn and cranking away on either his Johnson or his Shakeweight

All the exhausts I would have would be the normal sized mufflers for that bike.

Shakeweight.

How much would the tune run me and what exactly do you do? I've never had to tune a car/bike before.

Honestly with a slipon you shouldn't need any tune at all. It might clean up the low end a bit and give a bit more smoothness and rideability, but you don't really need it.

Ok sounds good. Few of the guys I read about said the bike shot flames sometimes with the 08-09 muffler. Is that running too rich and would that be cause for concern?

Typically that is running lean, and yes, it could be less than optimal. Cross that bridge when you come to it. If there really is no baffle in this thing, it probably won't run well anyways, but at least you can richen it up pretty good so you don't toast your valves.

A tune is $50 at most shops - $199.99 @ CP's but you get a free jacket if you are wearing white hi top Reeboks

After reading a bunch of threads on the newer R6 muffler, looks like I'll need a tune because it does lean it out and I'd hate to ruin my valves. CP can you PM me exactly what I would need to do in order to tune it. Do I need to buy the power commander, and if so, which exactly do I need plus how much will everything run me.

Thanks!
