well the cheapest is definitely the baffle-ectomy. Next to that prolly Dan Moto's I think they sound pretty damn good for the money.

If i buy those danmotos or any cheaper exhaust, do i have to worry about exhaust popping, or engine damage, or anythng else like that? Sorry im green when it comes to fuel injection bikes, Im coming off of a 15 year spell of owning cb750's motorcycles, 1969-75..

Welcome to the forum! I think EatDirtFartDust will have a video soon for his DanMoto triangles (maybe you can bug him like I've been for a sound clip). Those sound decent on other bikes, but no clips are available with the 919 yet. Just by looking at it, the GP carbon DMs will be on the loud side. They'll also offer the most weight savings compared to the other undertail systems as well.

You don't have to remap with an aftermarket exhaust unless you go with a 900rr setup. People do swear the difference with a PC3 being worth every penny though (as far as making the throttle more linear).

You'll have exhaust popping, but that can be fixed by doing a PAIR removal mod (use the search button to look up how to do this).

You will not damage your engine.

I'm trying to get my K3 back on the road this year.
It's been hibernating since 95.
I have two sets of 69-71 era pipes, both mint, one with only one season of use on them.
Unobtanium !
The 919 is an awesome bike.
It's an modern incarnation of the CB750, which is why I got mine in 05.
Gotta have a centre stand, real world passenger post for the Mrs., totally naked bike, dial gauges, handle well, and be track day worthy. (the suspension work and goodies made sure of that)
Have fun on yours.

There are some outrageously loud slip-ons out there.
I think the D Ms are in that category, at least when wicked open.
If you want something less, shall we say, overt, more expense and something quieter may be better for you.
I'm running Yosh TRSs which are on the quiet side of aftermarket sound level.

I should mention, that my stock exhausts had the baffles removed. So the difference isnt from stock to DanMoto, it's from debaffled stock to DanMoto.

Not as easy as DanMoto makes it sound. I had to drill new holes in the mounting brackets, otherwise the exhaust would have hung about 1.5 inches lower, which doesnt sound all that much, but it left for a rediculous gap between the rear clip and the cans.
Drilling through the stainless steel was no picnic. If you order it, let me know, I'll give you tips on where to place the strap and drill the holes.

personally, i think the sato's sound the best, but good luck finding them! next one down is the 2 bros single side can (the stainless version). however if you're partial to the dual undertail exhaust look, 3rd best option would be erions (again, good luck finding those, but i happen to have a set for sale!). they sound better than the dan motos or d & m and are of higher quality.

I wanted those, but they looked too short.
Little did I know that the JISU are just about as short so...

man those cheaper pipes worry me.... wouldn't be surprised if they need to be repacked at 5-10k miles..... and all those pipes look funky as hell to me.. the triangle dan moto ones are the worse lol. important thing is though is if you like them, you like them. that's all there is to it.

if i didn't get my hands on a set of satos which are super rare, i'd keep the erions hands down!

its between the center core and the outer diameter of the pipes. it's there, trust me! they are not straight through pipes. if they were, there would be no need for a center core.

+1 on Delks! I've got the CF version and love the way it looks. I took out the db killers, at full length they're just slightly louder than stock...but this summer I think I'll be cutting them in half and giving it an in-betweener sound.
