ok, I'm new to street bikes, and am VERY skeptical of this items actual value, but thought I'd see what you guys here would think...

thanks!

I think they will be so loud that no body will want to ride with you.

I know a guy in Houston, also with a 919, who's got those cans. Not much louder than Satos that I noticed. Albeit, I rode with him during a Charity event, Ride for Kids, so there wasn't any opportunities for us to go WOT... so who knows?

What I do know, is that we were unfortunate to have a couple of Squids riding before us, one of whom had a Comp Werks (I think) mini can, half the length and size of a typical muffler, which was extremely loud and annoying, and maybe that kid's can drowned out the D&D?

Yeah Rob it also make a huge difference if you're behind the rider or not. I've riden beside someone with DandD's and it wasn't that loud but boy from behind them when opening up the throttle I literally just dropped back because I coundn't stand it.

ok, then these are not for me. I would like something in the future with a little more sound, but I don't like em real loud. I guess I should be looking for a set of Sato's... 1st edition?

Ist if you can find a set, 2nd edition would also be a good choice.

EZ myself and a few others have been able to purchase Jaurdines on Ebay for a little over $300 and I think the sound is perfect and so far (over 3000miles) they have held up perfectly.

I replaced my D&Ds with 2nd gen Satos. 1st gen Satos will be louder than the D&D's. Sato 2nd gens are about the same (both require ear protection if you care about your hearing). The D&Ds produce a different, more "raw" sound. Satos are more professionally crafted but is the extra dough worth the money on a non-performance oriented bike like the 919? Only you can answer that question.
