dual to single.....

I have an 03 sv1000s with yoshimura slip ons but not to fond of the dual cansiter look, how much of a difference will I notice if I converted it to a single canister. Will have a friend build the exhaust for me and will be using a larger diameter pipe. Any suggestions on size and info will help...

*plans for bike, 520 conversion chain and sprocket, power comander, tune up etc....the basics.

Too many to list

Chain stretch not true.

Just lube the thing and it will last.

ONLY buy a reputable exhaust. M4 FTW!!! IMHO

If you do build your own exhaust, put some research into it. Most mandrel bends or welds use outsized pipes between welds so there isn't restriction at the welds on the inside and the pipe progressively gets a little larger.

Research, research, research

Man if you do the 520 conversion I would use a high tinsile strength chain like the EK ZZZ series chain. The tinsile strength of a EK 520 srx X ring chain is 8500 pounds. The strength of the ZZZ EK 520 chain is 9400 pounds which is the exact same strength of your 530. Anything less than that would be dangerous. If that chain snaps, it will, at least, break a hole in the crankcase of your motor. At worst it will wrap around your leg and break your ankle if not more. Just food for thought.
