950t exhaust upgrade.

I recently had the opportunity to change out my 950tís exhaust from the 2-1 factory setup with the addition of a Cobra slipon to a full true duals thanks to one of our forum members, Steve, who lives just south of us in Huntsville, Al.
Steve gave me an unbelievable deal on my new exhaust system. I had installed and rode in a charity run today. Itís loud for sure, but has a deep rumble. Click image for larger version

Thanks again so much Steve! They enhance the look of the bike in my opinion.

Looks great Keith and I bet it sounds good too. Always loved the dual exhaust look.

I like the look. Are they loud all the time or just when you get on it?

Me too NorthernRider, thanks!
Yes les, loud only when you really crank the right wrist. One thing I did notice was it had a tad more take off from a stand still.

You know load exhaust reduces fuel mileage. 😁 From wanting to hear the new roar.

Keep the stock pipes around for awhile. If I had mine I'd switch back. The loudness can get tiresome unless you wear plugs or a full face helmet. Hopefully you love them for a long time though.

For mad scientists who keep brains in jars, hereís a tip: why not add a slice of lemon to each jar, for freshness?

Thanks Highwayman and you raise an excellent point. I do wear a full face helmet and earplugs, and Iíll be keeping the stock exhaust as backup. You never know when youíll need it.
