Just purchased a 2007 -9 ( white) and will pick up the bike on Feb. 15 ( purchased privately off a CL ad) bike has 17000 km's and seems to be in good shape.
Certainly very low mileage for the year. The bike is fitted with aftermarket Cobra pipes, which are loud. Being as though neither myself ( nor my long suffering
neighbours) enjoy loud pipes, I am giving serious consideration to replacing the Cobra's with the stock pipes-which come with the purchase.
The local Suzuki dealership want $400 ( CAD) to swop the pipes and put bike on dyno to re map etc or do whatever it is that they do. ( Bike has power commander)
I noticed that the pipes are extremely black at the ends ( carbon build up ?) could this be as a result of the map for the PC not being chosen correctly ?
Another reason I want to go to stock-guessing the map can easily be re set-but more worries about the loudness issue.
Also I will want to put some tunes on the bike. Usually go with a basis set up with 2 speakers on the bars etc. On last bike I had-also with after market pipes
the pipes drowned out my music-another reason I want to revert to stock.
What are your thoughts ? should I go for it or will I regret giving up the rather nice rumble of those Cobra's.
