Looks like the Two Brothers exhaust is now on sale. Looks pretty good too. Saves 10 lbs and adds almost 2 hp. Starts at $419 for the polished aluminum. I think I'd have to get the black one though. :)

Note the power gains they got are not just from the exhaust, but with the exhaust AND there fuel controller (juice box pro)

I like the twobrothers one... But it doesn't look road legal, is it ?
I know here in switzerland they are very strict... But if you put the db killer, do the police mess with you ?
(Well I'm sure you can't really answer because you're not swiss, but maybe some advices ? :) )

It's only for the track. But here people use them on the street, and they are the only ones who like the sound. Everyone else hates loud pipes!

Yes it will cause you will have "new toy" syndrome and you will run it higher in the rpms to hear the sexy noises. lol

Just put a 2-bros on the bike we have in the showroom. They sound good, but the weight savings alone is worth the price. The stock pipe is around 15-20 lbs.

Well my bike is loud as **** now. I noticed more torque in the low and mid range, when i switch gears the bike is actually pulling me a tad bit harder, almost like it wants to take off from under me. But i've noticed my speed has actually decreased a bit. Weird huh? Before the exhaust when im at 7k Rpm's, ill be about 67-68mph. 8k Rpm's, ill be 77-78mph. You get the point right. Well after I get the exhaust on and honda does my first maintainence, I got on the highway and I hit 7k Rpm's going only 62mph, and 8k rpm's going only 74ish. Dont know whats going on but i can feel it pulling me more in city driving which is nice.

That's probably due to the reduced compression of the exhaust. I'm sure the 2 Brothers is a little less restrictive than stock.

I am installing mine on tuesday...I am just wondering did you install the Powertip for noise reduction?

I want the exhaust but I live in Waikiki and its can be super loud...so I am putting the powertip (silencer piece) in.
Nope I didnt, but I was thinking about it. Its loud when ur running light to light. But on the highway cruising, its toned down with a good bike sound. It really helps ya get noticed by cars which helps with safety. At stops it sounds like a v8 muscle car rumble lol.
