Yes yes, this has been talked of many times on this forum, and I have done some peeking, but have found that those posting possess invariably more technical expertise and nous than myself. And as I have a number of possible upgrades to ponder, the opportunity to get educated and help me decide if focusing on mufflers is worth my time and money is too great presently to avoid...
My 05 919 is stock, other than the Danmoto cans. They look okay, in fact I quite like the dual alongside the seat look. However, they are loud and raspy, and I assume there are no baffles due to this.
I am not flush with the notes, and exhaust system was nowhere near my list of main focus points (braided brake lines, PC III, new grips, chain and sprocket). Yet I have an opportunity to grab a Delkevic Y pipe and cans for a decent sum. And then see a single pipe leading to a single exhaust on ebay, which will fit (I believe).
And I wonder what difference to the engine and ride, these potential changes could create?
Does moving to a single exhaust fit with how the bike is set up to run in stock form?
Will the Delkevic cans change performance in any way? Will the single?
Any advice and education is welcome!
