best pipe for an SV?

Howdy guys, I;m looking at getting a good pipe for my 2002 SV650. Something in carbon fiber would be good, but that's not a biggie. The deeper the sound, the greater teh power, the better. Any suggestions?

My friend had an SV650S with a dual exhaust Yoshi setup and it sounded awesome.

Actually I have a V&H S4 full system and I really like the sound (and the fact that it weighs 1/2 of stock)

They are stupid loud and come with a big Texas flag tacked on the side, which I suppose is OK if you're from there.

Yeah D&D sound stupid! The loudest pipe isn't the best sounding pipe... the folks at D&D don't get that!

Muzzy are top shelf stuff. Jeeps!

I like 'em loud...

However, I have full Muzzy exhaust on my Ninj, which is a parallel twin... I am sure it will sound different, but on my bike it sounds nice and throaty... I would imagine you would get similar results...

So a muzzy would be a decent way to go, huh? sounds good

Hey, since we're talking SV mods, does anyone know of a wide-tire kit for the SV? I've heard of some people running 180mm rear tires on 'em.... just curious

I had the 2 to 1 Muzzy setup on my EX500! Sounded great!

Here's pics of it both with and without the added lower fairing.

Muzzy on a Zuk is sacrilegious.

There's room for the big tire but it changes the way the bike handles and raises the gear ratio.
