Another SV ?, pipes

I am looking for a good pipe with more of a better sound and not so much worried as a big gain in performance. What are the best pipes for a good sport bike sound?

I know yoshi's are good, but is there anything else that is just unique?

Who makes a good jet kit to go with this? I know that is probably a must for upgrading the pipe.

Is it as important to jet kit the bike if it is FI as opposed to a carb one? I am showing my super noobiness now.

Not really with a slip-on but the bike will reap the benefits more with it.

My problem is I wasn't expecting the jet kit to be close to as much as the exhaust. So I would be alright with a slip on til I get a jet kit and not harm the bike too much from running it leaner with it?

You might be surprised to learn how many bikes are running around with slip-ons only.
The fuel mixture doesn't get real important till you go with a full system.
Most any mechanic will tell you, you do need it for any air (in or out) modification. If money is the thing and a slip on is the way. I wouldn't worry about it.

You would be surprised how much gain is made by a jetkit and just a slip on... especially on the newer bikes... of coarse with the newer bikes and FI the possibilities are endless.

Yep, It just takes the right fuel map and hang on.

I have a Holeshot pipe on my Bandit and I really like it. Sounds mellow until you rip on it. They have pipes for the SV and there is some soundclips/video on the site to check out. Worth a look. When I ordered my pipe and jet kit, I talked to the guy(Dale Walker) that designs and builds the stuff.
