a slip-on is really only going to give you a different sound. There might be a few horsepower gained, but its nothing significant. A full system will give you a real bump in power and shed some lbs.

more peak horsepower, but at the cost of bottom end power

Great if you've got a track bike, but a waste for the street.

Slip ons give you sound, weight savings , & cool factor which is 99% of why you buy a pipe anyway.

How much you want to spend and for what?

you will lose weight, that's about all the gain you will get out of a full system.

All said and done, w PCMIII and tuning.... Is the 1500 worth it? Will you fell it? Maybe... the weight will be the biggest difference. With mods comes complications especially when the problems become intermittent.

A slip on is usually for just looks and different sound. Its a toss up...

I went to a full system cuz I was rear ended and found one for 371( muzzy) off ebay... and that is literally stealing.... pcm was 300 plus all the other stuff like block off plates etc... I did it myself so no labor...

To answer the power question... untuned, maybe 3-4hp w a full system. Tuned, no more then 6hp. The weight difference is where you will feel the biggest change.

Just get a slip on. It will sound cool, a little more power and is relatively cheap.

Full system is a LOT of money and you won't see the full benefit without a PCM and dyno tuning. Even with all that you will hardly be able to tell the difference, unless you are a racing .

my thoughts, comeing from a background of working on cars,

this is the just of it!

a full system and air cleaner, helps free up HP, its a cheap mod for the HP you gain and its easy to do!

now if you looking for just sound like a lot of people are, the slip on it your best bet, cheaper and you get the sound effect you are looking for , but min HP gain , and realy not noticable!

so it up to you , the full system would require a remap or tune, but that also helps get the hp out of the system.

to me yes the full syst is worth the money, and will go with a lot of other mods to add hp and inhance rideability, if tuned! any ways

Werd.... and i be willing to bet the people voting for slip-on only have just a slip-on themselves.

Why would you not get a full system unless its a price issue?

thats not why i said slip-on.

i said slip-on because for street riding are you really going to feel/use those extra 6hp. i mean riding on the street why would you need more than a slip-on unless your plannin on racing. if it was for the track, maybe it's a different story but for everyday street riding only a full system isnt worth it. i think a slip-on is just enough

IF the slip-on will eliminate the cat (heavy and restrictive) I would go that route and save the money for tires/trackdays...

I have a full system on the busa and a cut stock pipe on the 600.

Other then money, you will lose room for the wiring for the PCM in your trunk(already constricted in size Im sure), one map wont work forever. My bike is now riding rich, needs to go get remapped again.

Will an aftermarket exhaust hinder the engine? It could... you're allowing the engine to work more efficiently but also allowing more to be pumped out of it; its not designed for it and even though the PCM is a great mask for what the oem ecu cant do... its still a patch. In all honesty, you likely wont ever have a problem, but PCMs have been known to not allow a bike to start at times; or kill over and you'll have to rewire on the side of the road(these are rare but do happen.)

More vibrations through the frame due to less weight to dampen the engine pulses/vibrations(you may enjoy that part vik...)

Other then price, those are my other querks.... That said; my manifold is hit underneath and flattened a tad on the center runners due to drag racing; do cause significant vibration from the engine to transfer through the seat; I had a header 0 gasket blow out on me...

Its a preference thing. It will also be considerably louder w a full system.
