SV650 - Which Can?

I'm getting close to being able to buy a can for my bike. I was wondering what the good ones are?

I want something that won't hurt performance, and doesn't necessarily have to improve it. I'm not going all out with a new full exhaust, power commander, intake, etc... just the can.

I'm after the best sound, and have no idea what sounds good on my little twin.

I researched this a ton. Micron, Micron, Micron.

Yoshis are real nice too. Scorpion's say their slip ons do not need remapping at all. From what I see you don't need to jet bikes with a slip on, but most recommend it. Scorpion's doesn't improve performance, just sound, that is why they advertise no jetting required.

Not trying to hijack a thread here, but do slip-on's give you any real performance gains? Or just sound? I know when it comes to car engines, you can buy any muffler you want, which may give you a 1-2% increase in top-end horsepower but a big loss in low end torque/power. The real difference is made when you buy a full exhaust (Headers & Pipe) Also, what could be expected when pricing a full exhaust setup?

slip-on/bolt-on are basically just sound... but there are a few bikes out that have really really nice headers where once you get rid of that restrictive muffler you can gain... but you must tune for it. Like my 9R for example... I had a K&N air filter, Micron bolt on, and a jet kit... it gave my 136 at the rear! That is about 15 over stock!

That's all I want...sound. I don't want to have to go through all that remapping stuff. I really don't have the cash.

I saw that ebay listing already. They ship to Canada only.

Besides, don't you pretty much have to re-map the bike if you put a full system on? I don't want to end up running to rich/lean or whatever it can cause and lose power and/or do damage.

I simply can't afford to go the whole 9 yards and make my bike go faster.

Thanks for the knowledge Chris.

Which bikes (I'm assuming Ducs) have these wonderful stock headers you speak of? and if you're already spending some cash on performance why not just go and properly tune the thing anyway?

nope. the SV exhaust is one welded piece from start to finish. And a heavy one at that.

And ive heard nothing but good things about the M4 exhaust for SV's. Also sv650.org has some audio of different exhausts.

Well first off...that EBay listing ships worldwide...read closer.

Ships to: Worldwide
And JK is right... M4 makes a good exhaust for everything.

Grin.... I have heard this about many of the newer bikes... such as the 05 & 06 R6's... Speedwerks could tell you tons more about it...

For slip ons, how do these compare?

Yoshimura
Leo Vince (someone told me the SVs sound sweet with these on)
Micron

Stay away from D&D, right?

Another option I'm toying with is getting the stock exhaust ceramic coated, in black, to match the frame.

I think this would be significantly cheaper than buying a new can.
