Hi!

I'm looking for replacing the stock exhaust with an after market system. I'm currently considering the following:

1. Mad Dog
2. Staintune
3. Jardine

I'm looking for an "authoritative" sound, not necessarily louder, but much more powerful than the stock pipes. I have extremely good experience with Staintune, which I bought for my MT-01. Excellent fit, finish and very good customer handling! Sound wise I believe the MDs seems to be what I'm looking for but I really need more input from fellow Rocket Riders!!!

Thanks!

I can only say that I am very pleased with both performance, sound and looks of my Staintune pipes. I initially thoght of Mad Dogs but I like the "longer" look of the Staintunes.
Pics as usual in my album.

I have D&D's 3into2's on mine. They sound and runs good, but I miss the pipe on the left side. Makes the bike look un-balanced without it on the left side. That's why I like the jardines. I just can't convince the wife I need new ones.

Pipes are definitely a personal choice. I like the sound (deep rumble) and slash cut looks of the Mad Dogs. Very nice pipes. And be sure to replace the cat box while you're at it. I purchased the Triumph bypass kit and everything fit just right.

this is an exhaust we're working on and i have to say with the supertrapp you can not only change the sound level but extreme differences in the powerband by simply adding subtracting the discs at the end. best muffler out there since you can vary it for the bike.
sounds great too.

wiff, by that i mean me and my metal fabricator very good friend.. to make these on a scale you would have to have enough interest to warrant making a jig etc. this is approx 20 hours of labor. i'll post up some pics and see if you can even tell where the welds are.
hey doug..
when i'm satisfied with the design i'll ceramic coat the inside and ceramic with chrome x on the outside.. looks just like chrome.
these header run so much more efficiantly that i spent all day riding it and have no discomfort with just the plain metal.
jars, factory etc. must run 50-75 degrees hotter at least in radient heat than these. running the jars w/o shiels i had a carpet layers knee pad on my shin area 1" thick and it still felt like a bad sunburn. these, heck if i didn't want them in a chrome look i would just leave them the way they are.

wiff, click on the pic and notice how the left pipe looks like one piece
compare it to the 2 to the right where the sections of pipe are only tacked together. unfortunetly for this quality few people would be willing to spend the money. if you look at some jars w/o the covers on you'll see how crappy the welds and finish work are and they are 1k..

Hey Travelguy
Nice work on the pipes , are you running three into one , I can't quite see in the pics ? When you were welding did you disconnect the computer or the battery ?
