Surprised to see that nobody(?) is using such a good-looking slip-on (am I the only one liking it???).
Question regarding exhausts in general: should I expect to lose the popping sounds coming from the stock pipe once replaced with any aftermarket one? If that is the case then I will not be changing anything ... love them too much :)

No you won't, if anything it will be amplified exponentially!

If I were to go aftermarket it'd be with Termi's for sure. They look and always sound great.

That said, the stock exhaust sounds SO good that I can't really justify changing just for appearance since performance gain would be pretty marginal from a true usable perspective.

Funny, when I stopped by my local shop a few days after picking mine up, and started the bike to leave... the service guy came out from the back of the store because he heard it an thought I put a pipe on it already... I know I'm preaching the the choir, but even before break in / opening up a bit it is probably the best sounding stock system I've ever heard.

All of that said, that Shift-Tech Carbon is a nice looking pipe. Probably the nicest I've seen outside of the Termi's.

I'd hope there's no can of worms there, appearance is all about personal preference...

I'll say I'd be very interested to hear the difference between one can / outlet and 2 in person.

I might open up a can of warms but ... I do not like the look of termis (and price tag). Althought termis do sound good.

IMHO- Guido runs the absolute BEST Carbon Fiber distributor in the US!!

Yes I am a pal of his, however that does not change the fact that the Carbon itself is always a perfect fit, finish, and pattern when looked at closely! I personally like it much better than the regular DP stuff! Great customer service too. Ya can't go wrong!

**WHOOPS- you meant "Pipes" here, sorry! :)

Agreed, the stock exhaust sounds amazing. If I were to go the aftermarket exhaust route it would be a full Akrapovic system & MWR Filter + Rapid Bike for tuning.
