Which Exhaust?

Looking for quality and sound. I have had my 2006 919 for a week and it is way too quiet. I am looking to spend no more than 800. Would appreciate some suggestions. I am leaning toward yoshi carbons.

If you want to keep the dual exhaust, Yoshis sound and look best IMO. 900rr conversions sound nice too but you lose the sexual appeal of the dualies

Want something real inexpensive? Delkevic. Other systems look much better though.

What's happening, your neighbours are rushing out of their houses saying they love your bike, but want to be able to hear more of it??

Stealth has its strengths, IMO...

+1 Not sure how easy they are to find though. I went 900RR to get rid of the stink, a lot of good options there too and you will only need 1 can .

I have Yosh as well and one of the reasons I went that way is because they are on the quieter side vis a vis some of the others.
Around town or on the highway at cruise they are not at all what I would call loud.
Even wicked open and up in the revs they are not bad, although one could not claim them to be quiet in that circumstance.
If my wife doesn't complain about the noise, even after hours on the bike, then we KNOW they are not excessively noisy.
Some cans are outrageously loud, and loud does not equate to torque or power at all.

I just took off SS yoshis and put on these beauties...



loud (but not obnoxious) and MEAN [the rumble that you'd like] as f*ck.
I'll post a vid eventually (when I have the time to do it).

not many people run the D&Ds, so if you'd like to be a little 'outside the box', then these are the pipes for you. lots of different options as well (CF, satin black, etc..)

What's everyone's opinion for the deepest sound and most torque out of some cans?

We can no longer get the Sato pipes. What's the deal with that?

I notice with a louder exhaust that deer seem to haul ass the other way.

It works bro! It's kinda annoying at times even for whip, but I'd rather see the deer and elk hauling ass off the road rather than standing there to see what's coming

Yeah loudness has its advantages. And personally I like a loud bike cause I like it loud. And if I'm loud that means people are paying attention to you which in turn could save someone hitting you that's on their damn cell phone

I just put Delkevic CFs on my bike last Thursday. I was a little concerned about their looks because I'm not a huge fan of ovals. However, once they are on the bike, I think they look pretty nice. They are slimmer than the stocks, so they hide underneath the sides of the tail better. Delivery was fast and the install was way too easy...about 10 minutes to get the tail and old cans off. About 45 minutes getting the new ones on. They sound great in my opinion, and they come with easily removable baffles so that if they are too quiet for you, just remove the baffle in about 20 seconds. I'm sure that there are better cans out there (Sato, Yosh, etc.) but for the price and availability, not sure if there's a better option out there.

My goal is simple. It is a complete understanding of the universe, why it is as it is and why it exists at all.

I put Delkivic CF pipes on mine also about a mounth ago and I love them! good Quality and especially for the price, $410 shipped. The bike still has the same nice 919 torque, and I think they look great and sound nice also!

Sadly, I've learned that it doesn't matter how loud one is when it comes to other people. They are completely oblivious to their surroundings and don't pay any attention to any type of noise. And people call me Deaf...

Nothing gets my blood boiling quicker than a blast of my sebel, they have their window down, and they don't even register or respond to it. Had someone make a left turn when I was less than 100 feet from an intersection. Clamped down hard on clutch/brakes and was on the horn the entire time since I couldn't swerve left due to oncoming traffic or right due to the idiot continuing to make his turn. He then had the nerve to tell me after I chased him down that he didn't hear the horn even though his window was down.

TLR Don't assume people hear you just because your bike is loud, people may be able to hear out there, but they either sure as fuck don't know how to listen or just don't care.
