I've never seen or heard of it before, but it certainly looks cool and is damn cheap.

The however look like they will be UNGODLY loud due to the HUGE opening and short nature

There are a couple of video clips on youtube on different bikes. It's a different style muffler, but same maker on an X11. <<-- Link

Also if you're in that price range, there are stubby mufflers by Delkevic for around $330 shipped.

the delkevic ones are big oval things... and rnt stubby... the "stubby" delkevic ones are like the same length as the stockers.

Most probably generic mufflers churned out by the thousands in some Chinese factory with some dude's (in this case Dan) logo stamped on it.

ALL stubbies are likely to be loud.
you can't make a small muffler without it being either a h.p. thief or very loud.

there's a REASON why those Yamaha big twins have such huge ugly mufflers on them.

save your $330 and do the baffle-ectomy for free. it's just that if you don't like it, you can't just go back to stock, as is the option if you bought a new set of cans.

I'm trying to figure out what want on the 9er as well Right now it's either something like the original posters or i'm gonna go 900rr conversion. I love the duals but the performance nut in me likes the extra power and wight savings of the 900rr conversion.

If I go 900rr I'm going with a Two brothers M$ or something like this.

YouTube - GSXR 1000 K4 Dan-Dan exhaust

One of the better sounding I4's I've heard it just sounds pissed.

Common sense. So rare it's a god damn super power.

I love my Yosh TRSs in the dual setup.
More of a beastier growly sound that one gets with a 4:1
A 900 RR setup will net less weight, that is for sure.
Never checked out their dimensioning, as in diameters and lengths.
I'd assume it was piped to match the cam timing and carb/port sizing, in which case while it might make more power at the top , it would likely be at expense of some loss of torque lower down.

I wouldn't really call it ungodly loud. But to each there own. I grew up around trucks with straight pipes so even the retarded sounding choppers are still mellow to me. Nothing sings like a V8 through thin wall 316.

Common sense. So rare it's a god damn super power.

my personal fave is blower / super charger whine from a roots style super.... like this YouTube - Supercharged Big Block Camaro 1000+ horse power @ 36 secs.

a close second is a duramax 6.6L with a straight 5in exhaust rolling some coal. and an rc51 with a nice exhaust.

but regardless.... such a small outter diameter with such a larger inner diameter pipe is going to be pretty damn loud and fatiguing over time.

Ear plugs when you ride? I wear them whether I'm on the bike the quad or at the strip. I lost enough hearing listening to my impact wrench. evan when the bike was stock I ran with ear plugs.
