I'll chime in about the Trident Stubby, absolutely love it!!! If stubby's aren't your thing I'd recommend the Trident Undertail, don't have one but if it's anything like Peter's other products I'm confident it's more the just pretty good.

You were talking about sound. Length doesn't influence sound like that. Stock pipes are the same length as TPUSA Dominators or Predators and they all sound different obviously.

On my S3s, even my first 955 with a Two Bros, over my Blue Flames over my Jardine, over my Tridents over the last 8 years. All similar sizes all different sounds. Baffles, packing, diamater all influenced tones.

On the 955, Trident stubby or the Leo Vince if you can still get it. I had a high mount on my 2002 S3. Loved it.

Tripps - have you taken the baffle out on your stainless? It will certainly get louder then...

We have the carbon oval and the stubby in stock by the way if the OP decides to go that way - certainly the stubby can has proved very popular on the 955 as it gives something like 11 bhp with the right tune and looks great - really opens up the wheel and swing arm

My 98 Trident has a Yoshi carbon can.
My 05 Sprint RS has a Kerker carbon can (i also have an ally Yoshi can which used to be on it & my ST before).
My 99 Daytona had a high level Arrow can.
My 02 Daytona had a Triumph S/S race can.
My 04 Daytona had an Ackrapovic carbon race can.
Mt 00 Speed Triple had a custom made under seat system.

All of these have/had a very similar sound. The carbon cans had a very slightly deeper, more muffled sound than the metal cans & the volume varied slightly according to weather or not they had a baffle in. . . but essentially, they all sounded very very similar and in isolation, you wouldn't tell the difference between one or another.

Its the 3 cylinder engine that provides the soundtrack, not the can. The can can (The Can Can da da da da !) influence the tone/volume slightly, but essentially, they all sound the same.

No, I haven't, I will have to look, is it a bolt in or does it require drilling? My bud installed it while I was working on something else, so I don't know/remember the details of construction.

The baffle is in the front end of the can - just take the can off the link pipe and if you see the baffle in the end (it will be like a cheese grater blocking the hole through the can) just pull it out - it just slides in and out
