Hey fellas, I'm new here on the forum. I'm the new owner of a 08 R* 1700. I'm in the market for some aftermarket pipes. Nothing too loud, but good sounding. I was thinking of some cobra slip ons. Will they sound good? Would like something not to expensive. How much if any do the aftermarket pipes really open up the bike? I'm also now familiar with the infamous engine sounds these bikes make ( the minor knocking sound when throttling). I'm sure the pipes will ground out any engine sounds. Thanks for the feedback

There shouldn't be any knock... Check your oil levels.

Depends on what kind of exhaust you want. Full length? Half length? 2 into 1? 2 into 2? true duals? There's a LOT of stuff out there for the roadie.
