919 MIVV exhaust review

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:
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.

Sound:
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.

Performance:
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.

I cant seem to get these videos to embed. Can anyone help a brother out here?

Awesome, thanks for the effort.

I was planning on picking up a set of these as well until the funds ran out and I grew quite happy with the bafflectomy.

You guys (mdtoney is an exception) are probably sick of looking at my 9er. But I thought I'd throw in a couple of pics to support MIVV movement. A majority of you probably don't know this. . .MIVV is the official exhaust sponsor for MotoGP Team Repsol Honda.



Here's a close up pic of the aftermarket carbon fiber heatshield that hides the exhaust joint/clamp. It's much cleaner.

No one on here is sick of looking at your bike! It is one of the best looking 919's in my opinion.

Looks great Blackrig! If my Satos ever wear out I'll get some MIVV X-cones for the 919, love that pipe on Gin's 599. Surprising how good the sound quality is out of those relatively small pipes, especially considering how some of the other much larger aftermarket slip ons are considerably louder. And +1 on PJ and Paige, great people!

I know you've all seen this pic before, but I don't want her bike to feel left out...

I applied/trimmed the adhesive backed REAL Carbon fiber wrap (the thinnest available on Ebay) to the heat shields available from:

http://www.jpcycles.com/productgroup...5-27AFF4BA9662

I wasn't too sure if the adhesive would stick under extreme heat. But it has and looks great!! Or, if you like the bling factor you simply leave it chrome. Overall, it does a great job of lessening the heat on your leg AND especially hide the exhaust joint and clamp.

Yes they easily reinstalled and removable. . .look closely at the tips in the photos below. Initially, you'll have to drill the rivets to remove. To reinstall, you simply use screws/nuts/LocTite.

I made the two videos at the top of the page. That's what I was referring to. Near the end of the post there are two clickable links.

Do these (or any aftermarket) pipes do anything for the exhaust stink? Or are you stuck with that if you keep the pipes in the stock location?
