will other exhausts work for my sv?

i'm trying to find a used slipon for my sv. i dont like the sound of the stock bottom end, but think the top and mid both sound pretty great.
does anyone know if a slipon for something like a gsxr 600 would work?
would anything in the 600 range be good?
i also posted this at svrider, and so far it doesnt look good.
im not chomping at the bit or anything to go get an aftermarket slipon. im just curious and want to pounce on a cheap ebay find if i see one.

If you are willing to cut the off the midpipe, pretty much any clamp on style can will work. They are all around a 2" id inlet. Just get one with a strap so you don't have any hanger issues.

That's what I did to the wifes Hyosung 650, which is very similar to your SV. I took the Muzzy can off my Bandit and put on hers. It sounds like a Ducati now.

Also be aware you'll need to do a jet kit or programmer to add some fuel.

Here is hers:

Measure the OD of the stock pipe, then contact manufacturers to see what their ID is on their slip ons.

Can be done.

Generally with a slip-on, you won't need to do any tuning. A full system yes, slip-on, usually not.

Depends how lean yours is running now. You may be fine. If it starts popping real bad on decell that's a sure sign it's a bit lean

The Hyo is known for being pretty lean stock, so any airflow increase needs a jet change.. and a lot of people are jetting them stock.

Very likely not. Especially with a Fi bike. The carbureted bike, maybe a slight jetting change, but very likely not.

Most bikes with a freer flowing exhaust are going to "pop" anyway, so that's kindof a poor gauge to tell if it's "lean" or "rich". The best way is to have it dyno'd at a reputable shop (Metric Motorcycles in the Heights) with the 4 gas analyzer. If you don't want to spend the money to get it that exact or running that well, then you can always go old school and read the spark plugs.

If your spark plug is a white or white ash color, you're too lean. If they're black and or black/ oily color, you're too rich. Your plugs should be a light brownish color if it's jetted properly. Do a search on the subject, there's lots of web sites that have pictures of the different plug colors in most of them.

As long as you're not changing the stock pipes and only cutting off the stock muffler, 99% of the time, you won't affect things too much. Now if you start cutting the pipe shorter, removing baffles and packing to make it louder, then yeah, you'll probably affect the tune somewhat.

Personally, I'd do the swap, buy some new spark plugs and run the bike for 100 miles or so (heck, maybe 50). Read the plugs and see what you get, if they're all good, I'd keep running it and check 'em again after another 50- 100 miles and see what they look like then. If it performs poorly right out of the gate, check the plugs and see what they look like right away. The color should tell you what is going on right then. Make sure it's new plugs you're starting with though.

A little pop on decell is normal, sounding like it's making popcorn is lean.

Reading plugs is the best bet, or a dyno tune.

Or talk to some tuners familiar with your bike, and see what they recommend.
