Which exhaust do YOU think i should put on my sv650s ? 2005.
Im getting a slip on ! 110% sure.
(random) I heard that some people have to get a power commander and tune there bike a bit when they get full systems . . . do they have to do this also when they get a slip on ?

I really like the deep idle'n the m4 gets which is why Im considering that(But thats just an idea)...any other suggestions/comments ?

I was looking at videos with yosh pipes and it sounds kind of scooter like...idk is it just the video ?
Does not.

Videos never do exhausts justice.

I had an RS3 and was very pleased with the sound. (not to mention price, got it used with light rash from a member here)

I would say an M4 only because they look the best IMHO.

first time I have heard that!

I'll let ya follow my "vespa" through the twisties while I range around in 3rd gear. No...my RS3 sounds real deep (no baffles) and is just plain wicked when wound out.

+1 for the RS3. I put one on my K2 last month and it is brilliant! They're right, the crap youtube videos do not even come close to the sound you'll get from it. Almost forgot: The absolute best price I found for it was from Indy Super Bikes.com. Not the fastest, but definitely the cheapest.

Unless you're really concerned about weight and heat displacement, there's no tangible difference between SS/titanium/carbon pipes besides aesthetics (and cost). The stock can is so ridiculously heavy that any aftermarket pipe is going to shave a decent amount of weight, but mostly people buy them for the sound/looks.

Buy a Leo Vince Evo II SBK. This thing sounds amazing. I've got mine in carbon fiber, it's very light, looks good, and only gets warm. It's really cool to be able to ride all day, then touch your pipe and its only warm. Even better for passengers as you don't have to worry about shoes melting if they should touch it....... But, most importantly, it sounds amazing. :eek:

See my post here for pics:

The material effects the sound of the pipe as well. From my experience carbon fiber usually gives a deeper tone than all others where as aluminum tends to be deep but a little bit tin-canny yet. Stainless always sounds raspy in my personal opinion, but I'm sure others will disagree with me. Just search some youtube videos and you can get a general idea for the difference in sound quality out of each material. I know they aren't the best for comparing, but until you get a bunch of people lined up with different pipes to compare youtube will be your best bet.

Any aftermarket slip on is going to sound much better than stock no matter what. You should also consider if you want quiet versus loud exhaust in which case you may want to search for an exhaust with removable/replaceable baffle. That's part of the reason I chose my Remus exhaust. Carbon fiber oval with removable baffler = deep throaty goodness! That just sounded wrong.:vroom:

+1 for pistolpete. The fact that carbon fiber doesn't get super hot is a nice benefit. I almost bought the Leo Vince carbon fiber slip on but got a really good deal on my Remus so I jumped boat at the last minute. I don't regret it.

Cool...I'm glad to here that haha, no matter what then I'll be dropping some weight off my bike.
