Like everyone else, I struggle with the $700.00 for 2 HP & 1.8 Lbs. weight loss? I know it comes with an ECU re-map, and, can be put together with a OEM air filter for....? I still dunno what it all does together?
But, I'm getting closer to 3,000 miles on my stock bike & exhaust, and, I still absolutely LOVE it. It seems to getting a little meaner as it breaks in, just a touch louder and deeper sounding when I rock the throttle open in any gear? I sense a little more exhaust vibration at WOT now.
Since I really like the 'stock' exhaust so much, I struggle to consider investing in an exhaust? I mean, unless it's 5 or more Lbs. lighter, or, has a really unbeleiveable sound, I just can't see messing with it? We can't play with the ECU, so, there are virtually no gains in HP or torque with any of the exhuasts available, and, they cost $500+ before installation.
I'm still noodling the idea of a Lithium Iron Battery (Shorai or Ballistic), because that looses 7+ Lbs. at the top of the bike, which would be noticeable- and, heck, that's almost $200 bux...
