Has anyone got any dyno info on some systems for the 109 ? does it retain the servo and exhaust control valve? And If not Iwonder how much low end power might be lost versus mid to top end power.

I haven't seen any numbers on pipes In fact I don't think there are any commercial pipes out there yet. If so they're hiding pretty good. ;)

I put V&H big Shots on my Mean streak and then fitted the quiet baffles.
To some extent I feel I spoilt my bike as it was just too loud.
I want a note that's mellow and just the right volume not something that sounds like a powerboat.
Do any of these pipes on the market have a nice note or should I just let my dealer get his guy to rebuild the std mufflers as he suggested?
While doing that is it benifical / practical to remove the cat convertor?

I'll wait for 2 into 1"s  also,  Vance and Hines. I think they may have started on Suzi's with RC engineering. ;)

I love the way the stock pipes look. I'm just not ready to replace them yet.
I think they kinda sound like an older Chevy impala or something. (Like the commercial)
Beefy! (or a motor boat) lol :D

i am waiting for someone to gut the stockers and see what that sounds like.. :D
I modified the stock system with a 1 3/8 hole saw and it soundes great. Not to loud and not to noisy, they are straight thru.It did lean it out alot though.

At idle my 109 sounds mellow and yet gets a nice deep rumble when in gear and on the throttle. Several people that I have visited mention how well the bike sounds on approach. Had V&H on my 1800 VTX/C and I put "quiet baffles" in them......they were almost deafening..... I'm sticking with the stockers for now.

I just ordered a set of Sideburners, and I was told a date of June 21st :mad:... I was thinking of going with the Cobra's, but I'm sure it's going to be worth the wait... A lot of VTX1800 owners rave about how nice an exhaust it is.

So all I need now is an air intake kit made by Lamonster :D.. I have money burning a hole in my pocket if you couldn't tell.
