2002 CB919 debaffling.

Hey guys, do any of you have a link or know of a video on how to debaffle the stock exhaust? I miss my old 900rr exhaust set up and want some noise back.... I don't want annoying and obnoxious sounds from my bike. I want a deep and smooth sound when I give it a little throttle. I'm also looking at possibly getting some delkevic's. Which is a better way to go, debaffle or delkevic? And what delkevic do you recommend? I'm looking at the cheaper ones... (in the $300's) I see there are several different lengths. What length is the deepest, yet quietest? I want a little louder than stock but not obnoxious. Thank you!

I wouldn't cut up a stock exhaust. There is probably someone here that has one that they've gotten tired of or moved on from.

Yes, debaffled stock cans get passed around on a regular basis here. I just dumped a set someone else dumped on me for less than $100. There's enough debaffled cans floating around and new stock cans cost enough that you don't want to be cutting up a good set of cans at this stage of the 919's life.

This is right! Don't debaffle. If you don't want obnoxious - you won't like it!

I actually thought the stock exhaust didn't sound too bad. The worst was the whine at idle, but it had a nice deeper tone when you gassed it. The stink is why I switched.

I'm one of the "debaffled stock can dumpees" and I'm actually quite happy with them. Definitely look around the classifieds before you decide to debaffle your cans. It is very likely that you will find a cheap set of debaffled cans for sale here. I really like that I still have my original, unmodified, stock cans put away so I can switch back to them any time I feel like it.

I guess I'll keep it stock! Haha! I'll go with delkevic. They're about $325. Them they can be loud and when I want quiet I'll put on the stocks

Yup. There's almost never a need to debaffle stock cans at this point, debaffled cans are available in quantity.

The 919's getting old enough that 'vintage' status isn't far away, scarily enough. Speaking as someone who also has a vintage classic Honda in the stable, has had them off and on for years and who participates in that community, it's extremely frustrating to try to find reasonably priced used stock exhaust parts when 'everyone' modified and ruined theirs. At this point, we have a nice floating population of debaffled cans and there are still many unmolested stock ones in good condition. We should keep it that way if possible.

Just so you know, your stealth field generators are in the stock exhaust rear baffle. If they're intact, you can actually wheelie past most cops without them looking up from their doughnut and computer.

Check the classifieds on this site, there is a free set of cans that might still be available. You can debaffle them and keep yours unmolested (or vice versa).

I've already made arrangements to pick those up. The free ones are no longer available.
