Been shopping and my head is spinning. The manufacturers' sites are terrible. No part #s or specific info. The vendors aren't much better.
1. Does Micron build a slipon for an 05?
2. Does Yosh build anything for the 05 with the zyclone baffle(non-race)?
3. M4? Everyone seems to like the sound but not much talk about how loud that sound is or how well they are built.
I'm looking for good build quality and mellow deep sound without being real loud, but shopping without touching or hearing them sucks.
My stocker with the restrictor removed was OK. However, my boss put a rather large dent in it with a Dodge Ram so there is a new can and a new PCIII in my near future.

Thanks in advance for any insight.

Thanks alot Nexus. I have googled till my ears bled.
Micron has no applications or dealer list on their web site. If they make one, nobody seems to sell it.
Yosh has an even worse site and the only thing dealers seem to stock is the race versions.
M4 has a good following, but the only comments about them are that they sound good, nothing about sound level or fit and finish.
I'm looking for someone who has recently purchased one of these pipes to give me their impression or a lead to a reputable dealer who stocks them.
I will look into the Holeshot Damo. Thanks.

I can't speak about the '05 products offered by the various companies, but I'll tell you what I know.

1. I think Micron only makes full systems for the SV
2. Yosh does make exhausts (slip-on and full) for the SV with Zyclone baffles
3. The M4 is made well, and has a deep, mellow sound. It is not one of the louder exhausts, IMO. I had one (full race mount) on my 2000 for a while and had expected it to be louder, actually.

Holeshot has a much louder, raspier sound. If you want a deep exhaust note, I'd go with Yosh or M4.

I've also heard a lot of people have had good success with www.pipecity.com

www.oneidasuzuki.com also has a good selection and good pricing.

Hope this helps, but again, I don't know much about their '05 offerings.

I like the quiet stock exhaust as I don't want attention when I am running the bike hard, but as far as sound quality my favourite is the M4. It's a nice deep throaty sound. I think it is pretty close to what you want in your description. A friend was running the Holeshot and it is louder with what I would describe as a "snarl" quality to the sound.

The M4 cans are much louder than stock, for sure. Obnoxious... no. I ride with my father all the time, and he is not a big fan of loud pipes. According to him, the bike is pretty quiet when cruising, but does make some noise when I get on it. Overall, the sound is pretty deep and mellow, sort of like a Flowie on a 4th gen F body. Buy one now ;D

I'll add a +1 for the M4 pipe. I have a highmount can and love the look and sound of the pipe. Its a very deep sounding exhaust, way louder than a stock but much quieter than say a micron. My friend has a micron on his sv and you can hear it comming more than mine. yosh is by far the quietest of the three. for the price I dont think you can beat the M4...

Another vote for the M4 here. I love the sound and it is not that loud. Build quality is top notch and it's cheap to boot. 8)

That's just what I expected from you guys. M4 it is. Now is it a slip on or a full system?
Thanks again guys.

Oh, and Nexus, I know we all have bad days..............................but at least I didn't ask "what oil?"

Check out this link for some footage of a trip we did earlier this year in Australia. It's a ride by clip and the different pipes in order of passing are, starting the yellow k2: stock, Two Brothers, stock, Remus Grand Prix (mine), stock, (kwaka), de-baffled stock, (cbr), Staintune.

Staintune is an Australian manufacturer whose pipes are all stainless steel and come with a removeable baffle. Very high quality unit, and website is www.staintune.com.au

I just went with a slip on. Didn't feel like spending the cash for a full system and a PC. Doing just the plip on doesn't need the PC.

If you have the cash, and already plan on the PCIII, then get the full. M4 makes some beautiful headers, and really makes a performance difference you can feel.

I was told specifically that Yoshimura no longer makes the Zyclone for the SV.
The '05 is the same as the '04 and '03 so you should be able to see proper fitment from this.
As far as the others...you probably had enough replies with decent info.
Check out www.morepoweracing.com
They had some great info on a quieter baffle for the systems.
