I ordered a set of MIVV exhaust from PJ's parts
and thought I would give my 2cents.
Pipes arrived very quickly (considering they are imported) and in perfect shape. I dealt with PJ personally, on the phone, and I can't say nice enough things about the business he runs. Super nice and very professional.
Installation was easy. Every part lined up perfect. No troubles at all. Total install time time: 1 hour. And that was taking my time to make sure everything was as it should be. Need help? Click here.
I get the pipes on, turn the key, wait for the fuel pump to whine, start it up AND.... slightly louder than stock. Slightly. Now, at idle, the pipes sound quiet and legal. At 4500 rpm's, they start to get a little rowdy but mostly still very legal. Dam. If your looking for a set of pipes that can give you performance without a ton of noise, these are the one's. But I was wanting something a little more aggressive.
10 minutes + Drill = No more dbkillers.
Turn the key, wait for whine, and... AND... Perfection. Pure exhaust perfection. I was really afraid of the average sport bike tin can sound. This is far from it. Low rumbles and a clear tone. They are significantly louder than stock but comfortable. Overall I'd say they have a quality, not quantity, sound. In fact, I'd dare to say I have never heard a sport bike with a better sounding exhaust. I absolutely love them. They have been installed for a month and i still giggle when I hear them.
I have not had the bike dyno'ed, nor will I. This is purely a seat of the pants evaluation.
The performance gain is noticeable. It feels MAYBE a touch quicker off the line. Nothing incredible. I DO notice a much smoother throttle. Engine braking and down shifting is incredibly smoother. The jerkiness of the bike has significantly improved.
Overall, I'm really happy with MIVV and PJ. I have included a few pics and two videos. The videos are taken from roughly the same spot about a month apart. The first is the OEM the second is the MIVV. Hopefully, the OEM will give a point of reference so the videos are actually usable. Enjoy.
