919 Exhaust

Ok, since the Satos are not longer available, trying to decide between the MIZZ x-cones and the Leo vince.
What, if any, experience has anyone had on these? I have read a little on both, but nothing real enlighting.

I would entertain adding the power commander to either if that will help.

Thanks

I'd be adding the PC first, as the factory map is poor in relation to what the PC will let you install. When I say poor, I am specifically referring to pure "rideability" and responsiveness at lower throttle openings and tacho readings.

Have you considered the Yoshis too ?
There are the quieter side in general, but I have no idea how loud / unload the MIZZs and L-Vs are that you referred to. There are lots of really good choices, that is for sure.

919 Exhaust

Sound is not the primary factor for this upgrade, it is performance. Although a better sound sure wouldn't hurt.
I would be open to Yoshis if they help with performance.

Thanks for any input

I've been trying to find the Leo Vince but haven't had any luck. Where have you been able to find it?

Can't go wrong with Yoshis.

And really any pipe will improve the Horny as the stock pipes are very restrictive.

Yoshis work and they sound delicious.
I may be a slug at Track Days but EVERYONE says I have the nicest sounding bike out there.
The real key with any slip on is a good map, there's a fair bit of smoothing out of the torque curve that is possible with decent mapping. Interestingly enough, the torque curve on mine is much better than Yoshi's published curve. Mine was custom mapped, but the map ended being very similar to Lord Duck Hunters V4 Moriwaki based map.

Thanks to everyone for the comments.
I found the Leo Vince at:
LeoVince Exhaust Systems - Honda 919 2002-2006 (SBK Oval EVOII Carbon) - [part no.OPL6359] - OPPRACING Products

Anyone seen the touque curve of the Yoshi vs Mivv?

Did you have fitment problems on the Yoshi?

I know the exhaust won't do miracles, but looking to get what I can. I'm putting Renthal ULs on next week and just looking to "spruce" things up a bit in the performance area. Sounds like the PC is a no brainer.

Thanks again.

The Yoshi's fit up beautifully.
I was able to centre them almost perfectly.
I used antiseize where the header outlet goes into the entry of the Y tube, and also on the ends of the Y tubes where the Yoshi adaptor pipes slip on.
This way it was easier to shift around and get it "just so". I found the Y pipe positioning on the header end to be a major factor re subsequent take aparts and reassembles.

959 buck-a-roos for the Leo!!!!!

Check out Dennis Kirk - they have Jardine pipes on special or

Starcycle-usa.com

Yoshis start at $482 for stainless, $638 carbon

Plus a power commander for $279.

So you can get Yoshis and a commander for less that the Leo.

No-brainer really, unless you really hate the look of the Yoshi

I'm just pissed-off that my NZ dollar is pretty sad against the US or I'd have a pair on their way.

I can't say enough how much I like my Satos! I waited until I found a pair for sale (on here actually) and swapped the person for my stock pipes.

They sound UNREAL. I have two other buddies with 919's and they both like riding behind me just to listen. One has stock pipes, the other a partial bafflectomy.

I figured as they are no longer available, they are a collector's item for 9er's. I would go with a cheaper pipe until you can find some Sato's then, swap 'em!

I still have yet to get a PC, but I hear the Sato's play very nice with the sato map available for the PC 3.

First let me say I think the white Ti Moriwaki's are the best looking cans ever made for the 919, it is a tragedy so few exist, at least stateside. Too bad they are absolutley unobtainable.

I rock carbon Satos and if they are not available even in the used market I'd look to the Yoshimura in carbon. I like the triangle thing, think it matches the tank well.

Let me also say I like they way these look.

Honda Hornet 900 CB919 GPR Exhaust Slipon GP Evo New : eBay Motors (item 270536863720 end time Mar-26-10 03:10:13 PDT)

Don't get me wrong, they are stupid expensive, not even if they were high quality would they be worth that; but I do like the LOOKS (only).

I've got the delkevic ones, and while they're not a name brand, they are nice. You'll need a pair of clamps for the Y pipe to mid-pipe, but other than that, the price can't be beat.

CHECK EBAY HERE

They also have a website, but they don't list the stubby cans there.

I just installed carbon fiber Yoshimura TRS slip-ons on my red 06 919. I have to say that they fit the bike perfectly in every way and the sound is incredible, deep with a nice burble at idle, aggressive at WOT!

I'll post pictures when I can, hopefully this weekend I can get the bike cleaned up and glamour shot ready. I'd highly recommend them, as well as biohazardcycles.com, where I got mine for about $630 shipped.

I have it and make it available with no strings attached.

Use caution with the Sato's, as many had internal baffles made of inferior/poor quality metal - there is a thread about that issue.

I like the Yoshimuras. I think they look and sound great on the 919.
I just traded my 06 a couple of days ago for an 09 Bandit 1250.
I immediately ordered a Yosh can to replace the huge one on the Suzuki.
I put the stock cans back on the 919 before I traded it in as they didn't affect the trade in value. I figure I can sell them to help pay for goodies for the Bandit.
Here are some pics of the Yosh cans and my gone 919.

I meant to include this rear end picture of the 919 in the last post.
Also, here's a shot of my new bike.It looks better without the top case, so I leave it off when I don't need it. You can see why I want to lose the stock can on the Bandit.

I've never been to Denmark. If you pay my return flight there, I'll bring them personally and give them to you. In fact, I'll install them.

Compared to the prizes we have to pay for such a Yoshi "system" in Denmark - paying the roundfare from Cdn. to Denmark would be cheaper

Carbon Fiber Yoshimura TRS

Here are the pics of the CF Yoshis I promised (first time posting pics so hope it's done right!) I think that they compliment the 919 perfectly, you can decide for your self.

I have McRomo's map and it seems to be working very well. I've only had the cans and map for a week but acceleration is very smooth without any noticeable weak spots. I can't say is it is much better then stock since I installed the cans over the winter, but it feels very strong!

Good luck with your decision, if you still have it to make!

I've noticed that there appear to be two types of outlets on the Yoshi mufflers, as above - short and straight or a longer turned down one - anyone know why?

I contacted Yoshi about this when mine came in and they didn't match the picture. I was told that they no longer make the end cap with the "turn-down-tip." The TRS only come the open cap now.

In the box but not installed. Looks to be 3 hex bolts to remove the caps and slip in the inserts. I'm not going to try though, unless the local police suggest other wise ;-)

Thanks Jon. I still love the 900RR Exhaust. Mainly due to the less stink, but sounds good too.

3d's Sato can looks and sounds incredible.


Lots of great options if you stick with the undertail too.

Good luck
