Thoughts on This Exhaust

Allright, Im going to bug you guys one more time about exhausts. Ive narrowed my choice down to the Yoshimura TRS Slip-on. 58cycle.com has them for $310. I really want a black/carbon fiber looking pipe, and I love the tri-oval look. Does anyone have some good info on them? Is the price worth it? What's the sound like on their exhaust's? Thanks of all the help!

Have fun, ride safe!

$310 is cheap for a pipe, plus it's carbon. Looks sweet, I would snatch that one up.

Thanks for the reply mstrand_68. The site says that fuel remapping is not needed, but recommended. What is this, and how difficult is it to do?

If your bike is fuel injected, you will need to buy a power commander ($260, pretty easy to install) and download a fuel map. Depending on where you buy your pipe, you can order the PCIII with it, and request it have the right map already loaded.

Do you really NEED a pcIII? Sure it's best... but need not sure.

The question should be "Do you really need a remap?"
If you need a remap, you gotta get a pcIII (or one of the generics)

you can add an exhaust for the price of the system. You don't need a PC and remap. I am confident it will bolt on and be fine. If your looking for the absolute most performance from your bike then do have it dyno tuned to create a custom map that works best. Custom maps around my area run about $275, then a PCIII, and then the price of the exhaust.

PCIII and custom map may yeild little hp, or may amount up to 5-7hp. However a marked HP increase is unlikely. You will however have a better throtle responce and the most performance possible.

*Dyno tuneing does not take in affect the RAM Air effect. Only the DynoJet wideband pc will have the ability to accurately adjust for the ram air.

OK, so is there any ill effects if I put a slip-on and DONT remap, will it hurt the bike in any way?

No. But you wont gain much of anything either.
