If you decide to put an aftermarket exhaust system on the bike what happens to this feature that is on the bike:

The 2-into1-into2 stainless steel chromed exhaust system features Suzuki's digitally controlled SET (Suzuki Exhaust Tuning) system for optimum engine performance and powerful v-twin sound


On a bike like this I think performance should take a priority over looks.

I wonder how the valve works and what it is supposed to do. If changing the exhaust adversely affects performance, what is the reason to do it? If you change the exhaust and add a FI management system, perhaps that will counteract the loss of the SET. The SET is probably used to control backpressure and ensures the correct note of the exhaust.

I agree. With the Valkyrie people would change their pipes to the Cobra or TBR 6 into 6 pipes and swear they had more power. Turns out the dyno showed they lost around 6 to 8 horsepower! :mad: I think the best thing to do is get this bike on the dyno before and after and see what happens.

Maybe something like this would be cool. 8)

This goes back to the post about some of the performance parts coming from traditionally sport bike parts manufacturers. That type of muffler is popular now on sportbikes. Who's to say that we couldn't come out with a 2-1 pipe that ended in a piece that allowed traditional sport bike slipons? I wonder where that SET valve is?

That VTX 1800C/Rune creation is awesome. It would cost over $30,000 however. That one-off must have cost a lot more.

I spoke to yoshi rep & he said that a yoshi setup will be available very soon for the m109r. It's supposed to be a 2 into 1 setup that tested very well. I love that concept bike who's making that? I think with a few mods the m109r would be just as cool if not better.

I e-mailed Yoshi and they had never heard of the M109R and when I responded a new power cruiser he stated, "thanks for your interest in Yoshimura products but we don't make parts for cruisers." As if he was talking down about cruisers. :verymad:

LaMonster: My thoughts exactly. I'll be the test mule. That shiznit would be awesome. I wonder how close it would sound to a TL1000?

The TL1000 and Honda RC-51 have a great sound.
They have an unbelievable sound. A friend of mine had a RC-51 with Sato's on it. Unbelievable, very distinctive. If my bike could only sound that good.
