I stuck with the stocker on the 250 as well as my 750. Sure, they are ugly and heavy, but there are better things to spend money on first. Brakes, suspension, tires, and track days. Each to their own. I do drool over a nice Akra or Yoshi for my Suzuki, but my internal cost/benefit calculator says not yet.

IMO the biggest let down with the aftermarket cans is the decibel level of the majority of them.
I'm all for a lighter pipe in stainless steel or CF that wont rust and looks more stylish, but I don't particularly want to announce it to the world. Especially as these small singles don't have (IMO) the most appealing of exhaust notes.

The Fact is: Unless any of you yeah Sayers have brought your CBR into a Dyno Shop right after you bought it, Blown your warranty immediately by having it tested, then installed an aftermarket pipe of your choosing, then Re Dyno'd it,..... YOU HAVE NO IDEA WHAT YOUR TALKING ABOUT!

Many of us that have a CBR 250/300 are not looking to scare the cats and wake up the neighbors....Just get from point A to point B efficiently.


Misnomer: Loud pipes do not save lives
Loud pipes will save me from an accident because they can hear me coming.
Loud pipes mean I have a large dick and I'll attract more women.


An Aftermarket Exhaust Pipe is for Pro Racers or fools. Period. Unless you know, Don't Blow.....


Cheers
I think you're being a bit fickle. Dynos don't void warranties, and neither do slip-on exhausts. Loud pipes do indeed give another method of making yourself noticeable, which is invaluable on a motorcycle, regardless as to what it is that accomplishes the task.

People own the motorcycle they buy; they can do as they please to it. I happen to have a Leo Vince slip-on and have been very happy with it. I am neither a pro-racer nor do I consider myself a fool, and I'm sure as hell not going to talk about my genitalia with you.

Tis better to be thought a fool and remain silent, than to open one's mouth and remove all doubt.

I made my own out of a car muffler. Looked much better and a little lighter. 76Db @ 9500 rpm. Nice and legal too. My old Derbi Gpr hah 98Db @ 8500 :P

Take care & ride safe.

I'd pass on the K&N. The system's restriction really isn't in the airbox, and they let way too many small particles through the mesh for my liking.

I just put on an FMF header and Delkevic SS exhaust this morning; still a good weight savings even if though it's not carbon fiber.
...it's definitely louder, but not that much...
guys, it's really all about personal preference just like most everything. I'll still keep my old exhaust if I want to back on.

That, and it IS still, just a 250.

I would advise keeping the stock system.

I had to remove my 18" Delkevic SS when the rubber bracket insulator melted. I was also not pleased with the way it induced cold stalls and hot stalls off idle. I never felt a lot of benefit from either the weight savings or supposed power gains. I did get tired of being obnoxious in parking lots and the droning while riding.

I did keep my Delkevic SS header pipe. Flows better and looks better than the rusted OEM unit.
