I know there are some other posts on here about these pipes but I am seriously thinking about purchasing a set and wanted to get some more opinions. I see that they come in both a stubby version and a full length. I guess i'm not sure what the difference would be beside length. Would the stubby version be a little louder due to a shorter baffle? I know there are a lot of choices out there for exhaust but at the moment I cant justify spending more on a set of exhaust. Too many things I want to upgrade on the bike not enough money. Story of my life. This is a great forum and I can't tell you how much all of you have increased my knowledge of my new bike and products. Thanks!

I emailed them some time back re stubby and long. Have the reply at home - went something like:

Maybe 2-3 db sound difference between the two - stubby being ever so slightly louder. Mainly personal preference re the 'look' - you may prefer the long ones if you are having 'stink' issues.

Both come fitted with db reducers and they are rated fairly quiet with them in (mid 80's I think they said) and described as 'loud as hell' with them removed! You can always shorted the db killer insert to alter the sound level between the two.

They rate well in Europe and many forums over their have happy clients. The 919 ones sometimes don't some with the clamps for the 9er mid-pipe join so you may need to purchase a pair.

Otherwise a search will find several good Delkevic threads at least one with a sound bite.

For the price I don't see how you could go wrong really.

Not a nice as my yoshi's though,

Delkevic Stubby map?

This looks like a good place to ask this question:

Does anyone have a PCIII map for Delkevic Stubbies?

I have the stubbies on my 05 919. Love em. With the baffle out sounds similar to the bafflectomy and slightly louder then stock with the baffle in. The tone is better either way though. Very well worth the 300 bucks I paid for mine. I'm in the same boat more mods then money available.

I have the Delkivics. Awesome pipes. I've loved them. I'm thinking about doing the 900rr conversion tho. If anyone is interested, for the right price, i'd let mine go. =) Just sayin...
