No offence taken mate, point taken

I love Staintune work it just is always at a premium price.

Though Trident generally produces the best HP gains on these triples.

cheers
Dave

Yeah, agree they aren't the cheapest pipe out there. But far from the most expensive either. Well, the times I've installed them on my bikes in the past, there were always dearer pipes available.

I like the remus, but still find it visually a little "heavy" for my tastes. Am hoping that, judging by the pics I've seen so far, the staintune will look a little "lighter".

I don't like pipes that are rivetted together, or have separate straps looped around the pipe to mount them (like the trident among plenty of others). Looks a little cheap in my opinion, when a design that is specific to a bike can include brackets welded in the correct locations etc. My preferences, anyway.

I'm with Ants on this one.

For me it's about what I trust and what I've had good experience with. Staintune fits the bill. Convenience also helps . To my surprise my local dealer is also part of the Staintune dealer network.

I'd been looking at the others with the idea of getting a new muffler. Just from looking at the website Remus was too expensive. My other problem is that as I don't live in a place that has the convenience of
being on a mail delivery route or that has pesky items like street names/numbers I usualy run into difficulties getting large items from overseas. So many of them wont deliver to a PO Box number.

So, once I'm back from holiday the GT will get a new muffler. I guess I'm lazy but the convenience of just needing to make a phone call and then organising a day trip to the dealer wins the day. Might get an 18 tooth front sprocket at the same time

Just to point out that whilst our stainless cans are riveted together, our carbon and stubby carbon are not - in fact I think we are the only manufacturer to have rivetless carbon cans

And I guess like everything you pay your money and take your choice - you can have a Trident stainless delivered in Australia for $400 or a carbon for $525 to your door - I can't knock staintune though - they set the price they need to set to stay in business and make a living - they're small volume and high quality much like us and one of the very few to still be in business after years (in the UK Trident is the only major exhaust manufacturer that has not either gone bust, been through receivership or folded and started again with the same name the next day)

No offence intended mate - I simply don't like the LOOK of rivetted exhausts.

And in the end, it does come down to personal choice (thank God, or we'd all be riding Harleys and UJMs). I went Staintune for a couple of reasons, and love the pipe. Seen the Tridents, and like them a lot too. Was tempted. Sometimes personal preference is a very... personal... thing. All strength to all of you! If I ever go 1050 I suspect the Tridents will be high on my shopping list.
