Thumbs UP on the Staintune! I have one on the '01 VFR and I'm
real happy with it. I was able to buy it slightly used for
$300, instead of the $450-500 they want for a new one. I researched
a lot of opinions before buying it and had narrowed it down to the
Staintune and Micron. The fit and finish is excellent. It's a nice,
polished, great looking can. The bike has an awesome growl when on the throttle....I run it without the (whatever ya call it) silencer.
It's NOT too loud to run without it. My Inline-4 friends love the sound!
The edge went to the Staintune because the packing is stainless and never needs to be repacked! That really sold me
If you hunt around on the VFR forums you may be able to find a
used one, when some go to full exhausts.
