Best slip ons?

Looking to get a set of slip ons for my street triple r. Anyone know if any direct comparisons have been done between all the more well known options? Im looking for a nice deep sound that are louder than stock but not ear bleeders like i hear the dannotos can be. Im thinking the Akrapovics over the arrows, 2bros, danmotos, jardine. Anyone using them offer any opinions? Thanks

Seems the most popular ones are the Arrow Slip ons, or Comp Werkes. There's another one that's more tubular and black but i forget what it's called. Those seem to be the 3 most popular from what i've gathered. You looking for low mount slip ons....or high mount?

Keep in mind you will need tight-fitting ear plugs if you use loud high-mount slip-ons especially below 6000rpm because of the location closer to the ears. OEM map tune 20589 (for the loud Triumph slip-ons) should work well for most loud aftermarket slip-ons. The Arrows come with their own map. - Wayne

Personally i prefer the look of the high mount. Im not looking for ear bleeders just something so people stop randomly swirving into me since they dont know im there. Since im new to motorcycles in general, these mapping you mention are for fuel ratios? and are set via a data cable of some sort?

i don't care if you paint your bike flourescent green and mount a ambulance siren on the pillion, people will still swerve at you, pull out in front of you, and just generally try and kill you (not on purpose) for no reason. just saying, don't rely on the pipes...

The Triumph TORīs sound great if you want something deeper and louder but still maintaining the stock look, I have them and love them. When and if I change them I will be getting something by CRM (Chain Reaction Moto) Great looking stuff in my opinion! And you can change your own maps using a data cable (ebay OBDII data cable) and TuneECU (free program) there are loads of threads on here about it.

I prefer the slip-ons that don't stick out past the end of the bike. The Akrapovics are great but look a bit long to me. Same for the Two Brothers.

I have the Arrows but I also like the SC Projects.

The human ear is very bad at locating deep sounds. That's why sirens etc. have a rather high pitch. But even then, sitting in a car they are hard to locate.

Louder and deeper pipes will not help you in traffic, the only thing that will help is changing your driving style (since you cannot change other people's riding styles). Just as you need experience to judge the correct corner entry speed, you will need experience to "read" traffic, i.e. anticipate the behaviour of other drivers. And just as with corners the solution until you gain that experince (my guess is 20-30.000km) is to err on the side of safety: don't ride with too large or too little a speed difference relative to other traffic, don't ride where other people can swerve into you (ride next to the hood of the car next to you, not next to the trunk).

Back to slip-ons: the arrows are the best compromise in terms of sound and performance to me. The Akrapovics sound a bit nicer, but I find them to be quite a bit too long - and of the course the price is ridulous. Most other slip-ons are said to have too much of a negative performance impact. I would go with the Arrows.
