Okay, I cannot take that gigantic stocker exhaust anymore. I've never put an aftermarket exhaust on a sportbike, just quads and carb'd bikes. On quads, I just put the exhaust on, re-jet and ride. With a sportbike, I can see where there might be a problem. Am I correct in that if you change out the whole exhaust, even on a FI bike, won't this possibly do some damage to the fairing with heat? I'm not looking for more power, just sound and more exhaust flow (which I know will allow more power). Can I just buy a slip-on and go?
Or better yet, should I buy the complete system and have a shop install it? What kind of exhaust seems to be the more popular, reliable and budget friendly? Any suggestions are welcome.
I'll be out of town for the weekend so I'll check back on Sunday.
