Hindle made my YZF sound mean. I'm gunning for high mount Devils on my SV, but am open to any dual high mount carbon.

D&D -- I'd use 'em for my SV. Makes the bike sound like a Harley!

Worst sounding would be D&D

Worst quality would be Two Brothers

But I like the way my micron sounds on the f4i. :take_it:

My SV is equipped with stock dual exhausts. The Devil set I'm looking at is a high-mount carbon slipon system but yeah, it's in the $800 range.

Worst D+D. Had one on my first bike (ZX6R) and it was way too loud. Had that high pitched sound. I like the sound of a full yosh or Arapovpic. Also Wileyco has a good sound as well.

worst = any slip on (why bother)

I only question their design on the Y pipe. The pipe Y's at a right angle.. This can't be good for flow dynamics

Akropovich is by far the best made exhaust out there.

I have a Devil Ti can on my R1 that is just fine... They are located here in jersey and I got it CHEAP right from the distributor...

A guy I work with has an SV1000S and he just installed a set of Dale Walker Hole Shot can's on it and it sounds friggin awesome! It does have a hint of Harley sound to it though.

10-08-2005, 12:02 PM
I had a D&D on my 2002 R1... my god! It was the worst friggin' exhaust! Way ugly loud, and it cost me hp. Replaced it with a high-mount Hindle (which is not so good on the track btw) and haven't looked back. I put a GYT-R exhaust on my 04 R1 and it is the wickedest sounding exhaust I think I have ever heard on a 4 cyclinder 4 stroke. Especially after breaking it in.

My wife also had a D&D on her first bike, a 1995 EX-500. That thing was just plain ridiculous if you can imagine a twin-cylinder with a D&D... But the kids seemed to like it when flames shot out the back... ;)

High_Revs_17
10-08-2005, 04:34 PM
What's the point of spending the cash on a D&D when you can just gut out the stock can...that might even sound better.

Hindle is a sexy lookin' pipe.

Devil did their homework, they seem to sound great on many different bike makes.

I loved my full Yosh system with the race baffle. It had great sound and performance.

It seems not a lot of Honda guys choose Erion or Jardine, even though it's used on the winningest race machines in the AMA. Win on Sunday, sell on Monday.

Don't be hatin' on the D&D...yes on a 6 they do sound raspy...but on higher displacement bikes they sound pretty killer...Just ask Southpaw, LMFAO!

They don't sound killer, they sound like murder...

And they're built by Joe Bob's Pipe Fitting and Tailor Shop While-U-Wait in LoosaLippsa, Texas.

D&D gets a bad wrap...takes that certain whacko to like em...me being one of them...they helped my 01 gix6 frankinbike(750 motor) with some nice hp #'s...105 on the 6 and 137 with the 02 750...that 750 motor would check out like no other...Got the sv1Ks now though...lookin to get a full dual high mount TiForce.

10-09-2005, 05:34 AM
D&D's get some of the best power curves..
Akra I would say is one of the best diesel pipes.. For my bike I would go with Jolly moto or Arrow cans!

PitsVtec
10-09-2005, 01:53 PM
D&D is too annoying for me. I was recommended a Jardine, heard it and bought it...suits my bike and my ears just fine.

ffejtable
10-09-2005, 11:10 PM
I have a full Muzzy o my 96 zx6r and its as bad as the D&D on my 01 zx6r, but thats partially because the packing in the Muzzy magically disappeared...

I bought the 01 with the D&D on it, and I really hate it... The sound, anyway.. I really cant complain about quality, or comment about power.

I have been thinking about Jardine for the new track bike, but chances are, its going to be a Yosh... The Yosh sounds real nice on my bike... Loud, but deep, instead of raspy like the D&D....

10-10-2005, 12:56 PM
Sorry, I'm not feeling the shorties or dual pipes on one side. I don't know, but they just don't look right to me. I do love the sound of dual pipes, but more from an RC51. A person we have ridden with has one and I forget what kind of an exhaust, but the noise is mouth watering..... :nod2:

10-10-2005, 01:50 PM
MIG that sounded awsoem onmy r6 i have a yosh now dnt reallylike the sound
myboy had 2 bros xmetal dual cans onhis monster 900 and it sounded like thunder ...
ilike cheap shit so hindle sounds good to me...

but listening to some of these bieks new form the factory i ma beginginto like the stockers.. especiallysince they dont wake up the cops..

NYCSTRIPES
10-15-2005, 06:01 PM
I have an RC51 with a Ti Sato half system and the bike sounds great. My other bike is a TL-1000R with a full M4 setup and it too has a distinct and healthy sound.

I guess if you have a certain bike, there will be a pipe kit that will sound great on it if you shop around. I went with exhausts reputed to make the most power on each bike and I was rewarded with great sound too. I got lucky.

My friend's TL-R has a D&D full sytem, I hate the sound of that setup. Loud and unpleasant.

10-28-2005, 02:55 AM
I've gotta say ARATA. I looked and researched almost every brand out there and finally settled on the ARATA "new style" Ti. Build quality is flawlwess and the sound is..........................oh so NASTY!!!!!!!!!!

RonJ83
10-29-2005, 12:08 PM
best sounding: Graves MotoGP Full, geez that thing is loud!, Akrapovics & Aratas are excellent pipes too. Termis are cool, but i think they need to make some Ti pipes as suppose to only CFs, and jardines are a great choice too.

cant say much for D&D or 2 Bros cause i dont know anyone who accually owns them.

stealth r6
10-30-2005, 01:29 AM
worst by far D&D

Best IMO: Devil, i bought the high mount carbon fiber for my R6 well considering i kno the owner of Devil Bikes and live 2 minutes away from his place, i couldnt let the deal go by. Paid 350 for it, and love the way it sounds. Has that beautiful deep throaty sound and not that annoyin raspy sound the D&D has.

D&D can get a little annoying. Wound up going with the micron and was pleased. A little louder than stock but not hard on the ears.

Lord Duckhunter

The ONLY people that think Two Mothers is a good exhaust are the ones that have never had anything better...

I always hear "I've used Two Mothers on my last 10 bikes & they are awesome" Well Gee if you have never used anything else I guess that makes it easy for you to choose huh... Ask anyone that has owned a Two Mothers product & a premium exhaust like Sato, Arata or Moriwaki which one is better & see what their response is.

If you want an opinion it helps to get it from someone with enough experience with all brands to add some credibility to their statement.

I wrote an article on exhausts for my RC site. Disregard the RC specific info & you will find that most of the info rings true across the board.

http://www.rc51.org/exhaust.htm

Lord Duckhunter
02-14-2006, 03:49 PM
oh & to the Busa guy that claims slip--ons are no account you are totally clueless.... A well designed slip-on can add more performance than many full systems. IN fact on the RC51 the Sato exhausts actually give more overall performance than ANY other exhaust slip-on or full system we tested & the gains are in the mid-range where it is most beneficial. Most full systems like Akrapovich concentrate on peak horsepower numbers & HP is always a trade off so they sacrifice mid-range or lowend performance to get peakier numbers, but how often do you really ride around with the throttle wide open & the bike bouncing off the rev limiter??? Very rarely I bet... You use the mid-range performance of the bike all the time in daily riding.

Many of the OEM headers nowdays are built very well so well in fact that choosing a full system over slip-ons typically produces only a few more horsepower at best. What you get for your money in most cases is droping a few more lbs than you pick up in horsepower which makes slip-ons a very viable bang for the buck on almost all the current sportbikes.

FMF was strictly dirtbikes untill a few years ago when they made the jump to the sportbike market. I have never really seen anyone running one and from what I have read they have a tendency to lose more power then they produce.

Also, sound clips are great to listen too but you are never going to hear what the pipe truly sounds like from a clip. Just my .02

I love D&D!!! I rock it. I was looking at going with the Devil High Mount OVO but I heard it on this guys 954 and it sounded like shit. Kind of steered me away from it now. So once again I'm looking. If I find a 929 with it and heard it and like it, I'll get it but not taking that chance until i know.

I have had many. Sato and Moriwaki were my favorites for sound and quality for my RC51.
My M4 full system delivers incredible sound but isn't the most great looking or top shelf quality. I had a few Yoshimura systems as well which were pretty decnent for the money but are also a mid level pipe.

Ti Force is one I never owned but they look and sound awesome.

I think this Yosh TRC I found sounds the best on any GSXR-1000 I've heard. It's a special race team part I got on ebay. It's the same dimentions as the cans off Mladin and Spies' bikes, 14 inches in length with a 2 1/2 inch outlet. The regular end can for a TRC is 16 inches in length with a 2 inch outlet.
