looking at a bolt on slip on muffler...

I had a micron stainless slipon/midpipe combination when i bought the bike and loved its sound but changed back to stock form to get teh SET valve in the exhaust adn have the low end torque vs the extra couple HP on the top end with the micron

This is the pipe im thinking about, I like the oblong look, carbon im not to concerned about as it does nothing anyways, its

Im not buying straight from yosh so no heart attacks about that

how will this sound in comparison to what the micron sounded like, the micron wasnt loud but had more of a rumble to it when id be near idle, I dont want a super loud pipe either as id hate it

whatchya think

I have a Yoshi pipe on my bike, but I don't have the triangle shaped pipe - just the standard round tube.

I think it's the RS3 or something like that (it came with the bike when I didn't know jack about them) but I really like the sound of it. It's lower than most that I hear and is faily quiet unless I'm REALLY getting on it (and we know how often that happens ) and then I don't really even notice it. I'd probably buy another one of these for my next bike just because it's NOT loud and doesn't have that wail that you can hear for miles when you're hard on the throttle. Good luck, hope this helps!

I like my areaP pipe too. At low rpm/idle its relatively quiet, but when you get on the throttle, it lets you know it's back there. http://www.areapnolimits.com/product...R1000-2001.php

I never had that valve, but I don't think my Akra pipe cuts off the low end. Maybe we should swap bikes for a quick ride...

Aparently my pipe is loud though :P

I have a full Yosh system on the Giggy and it's not bad, you can hear it when it's on but it's not awful. Doesn't really get loud until you're at about 8k rpms. Substantially quieter than my old Triumph 955i with the Carbon race can.

PM me your number and I'll play you the soundtrack when I get home from work.

the valve provides additional back pressure at low engien speeds/loads this helps make more torque, but as speed adn load increase the valve open allowing free flow
