Exhaust & Integrated Tail Light

I'm looking for readily available, easily installed, and loud pipes for my '03 cb900f. Was looking into Delkavics, thoughts?

Also, wanted to do an integrated tail light & get rid of the big blinkers/rear fender. Any suggestions on those parts?

TIA

I have Delkevic slipons, a CustomLED integrated taillight and a horrible home made tailtidy made out of some L brackets, flimsy metal and LED bolts.

The Integrated taillight is great, but I ordered a clear lens off of eBay, then hotglued the taillight board into the housing as per their instructions. The board is well made though and the expense is worth it.

The slip ons. I wish I got shorter ones and shouldíve gotten the kit that included the y pipe, but it was easier to install. The issue is that they didnít include the spacers for the mounting brackets, mounted properly, they were touching the seat cowl. Delkevicís support was great though, I told them the spacers were missing, they said they werenít included in that slip on only kit, but sent me them anyway after seeing the fouling. They do sound great though and I can toodle out of my neighborhood without waking everyone up.

The tailtidy works, but doesnít look nice. Someone else on here ended up taking the stock tabs off the seat pan, then took their Ecu out, drilled holes in the back and bolted the stock license plate bracket on. Which looks pretty good without flouting the law noticeably. That is probably what Iím going to do with mine.

I also got a Delkevik exhaust system. I got the single Y link pipe as well. Well built, sounded great but I ended up regretting the length. I even ended up fixing an extra hanger bracket towards the rear. Recently replaced the slip ons with shorter round SP engineering cans and I couldn't be happier... for now.
I used the Delkevik Y link pipe, it's 50mm where the cans slip on.
Also between the Delkevik and the SP engineering cans I tried a pair of cheap chinese cans. These were bloody loud. Cost a hundred bucks for a pair but one started to fall apart after a year or so. I was kinda glad to see them gone, and probably everyone else!
Made my own tail tidy out of some checker plate aluminum.

I've got a used set of Delkivics if you want them. Let me know if you're interested and I will go dig them out of my storage. I've been meaning to sell them for years, but just never got around to it.

What did you switch to? and why? Interested though.

I switched to a single side exhaust setup, using a 2Brothers midpipe and DanMoto carbon fiber can. Why? To reduce weight and clean things up a little. Also liked the way it looked.
