There is a thread like this for the second gen but not the first so i thought it made good sence to start one. *Maybe this could be a sticky at the top like in the 03+ tech forum*

I stole this bit from the 2nd gen thread...

Exhaust Types
There are two types of exhaust systems for your SV. You can purchase a slip-on exhaust (generally less expensive) or a full system exhaust (more expensive, but it nets a bit more power).

Slip-on Exhausts

• Less expensive
• Easy to install
• Reduced weight
• Doesn't require a remap*
• Requires modification to stock exhaust system

A slip-on is generally less expensive and easy to install. To install the exhaust, you will have to cut your mid-pipe (using a hacksaw, sawzall/reciprocating saw, angle grinder, plasma torch, jaws-of-life if you're nimble, you get the picture...). It's a very easy procedure to do and requires minimal tools. Slip-ons will give you a louder and deeper sound to your bike and a nice look, but rarely do they net a power increase, and if they do, you won't be able to tell. In general, a slip-on will not require you to remap your bike's fuel injection mapping. This modification is best suited for street riders.

Full System Exhaust

• More expensive
• Reduced Weight
• Generally nets a HP/Torque Increase
• Does not require modification of stock exhaust system
• Will most likely require a remap*

Full system exhausts replace not just the muffler, but also the the mid-pipe and exhaust headers. The result of this is far less exhaust system weight, a HP/Torque gain, and an open and deep exhaust tone. In general, full system exhausts will require a remap of the fuel injection mapping. A high flow air filter should also be installed. This modification is best suited for track day addicts and racers.
