and don't buy from blair, he's shady.
When I put my M4 on I didn't remove any of the exhaust, except what was cut off of course. I used a hacksaw but I don't really recommend it, the place where you make the cut it actually 2 pipes, one is a perforated core inside the outer shell. It was a lot of work to get it off.I just got my highsport today. Can't wait to install it and hear the difference (I cannot stand the stock sound). Too bad slip-on means you still have to remove most of the exhaust to do the cut.
I got the full system M4 and love it (why do something half assed). $1k+ is pretty exagerated, mine was only 750 and i've seen them for less then that depending on mount style.yes, it is a great exhaust.
unless you're worried about an extra 5hp, and want to spend $1k+, a slip-on is fine.
and ranger, you know as well as I do that the second gen exhaust thread is WAY to bloated to be a useful source of concise information.
It depends on your reason for getting it...Does anyone know if this is a good exhaust and is it worth it 2 buy a full system or just get a slip on?
and did you get a power commander or the like?I got the full system M4 and love it (why do something half assed). $1k+ is pretty exagerated, mine was only 750 and i've seen them for less then that depending on mount style.
Wat is your best price on a m4 carbon high sport slip on for a 2008 sv650 sfThat is ridiculous, everyone knows that I provide the best price match, and service on the M4 for the members on Svrider.com.

if not, your bike is probably performing worse than it did with the stock pipe.
i didn't ask you :nana:Yup I recently put the PC on.... I drove the bike a few weeks with the full M4 and no PCIII and it was pretty much the same as stock... slightly different torque curve perhaps not quite as good...but the bike was running hotter...
It is much better with the PCIII on with the M4 map.... (and it even runs perfectly fine without misfires when it is colder than 60F ... that [email protected] in the PC thread has a screwed up bike or screwed up PC if his has problems and not all PCIII are crap, nor are they a miracle either it is just another option if you like playing with the bike... I hate taking mine in to the shop)
someday I may even get a custom map done, but for now as long as it is as good or a bit better than stock, that is fine for me... I am interested more or less 75% looks and sound and then around 25% for the performance... but the option is there to tweak it a bit more... especially when I do some intake mods... if I go that far with it...
i didn't ask you :nana:
but thanks for proving my point ;D
Yeah those stock cans are HEAAAAAVVVVYYY when compared to a titanium or carbon M4 can. The look and sound is amazing and the saving of 7lbs doesn't hurt.
I used a reciprocating saw also, and I unbolted the footpeg mount and moved it out of the way so I could get a better position and cut down and away from the swingarm with no risk of hitting it at all. Although then, too long of a blade can hit the tire, so you still want a shorter blade.To cut off the old pipe I left it on the bike and used a reciprocating saw with a metal cutting blade. It took longer to find an extension cord than it did to cut the pipe. I then filed off any sharp edges and had the new M4 high, mounted in a total of about 20 minutes. The look and sound is amazing and the saving of 7lbs doesn't hurt. If you use a reciprocating saw just be carefull to not use a blade too long or you risk hitting the frame.
