Any suggestions for a good slip-on for my VFR? I want it for sound. And since it's fuel injected, no other modifications are needed, correct?

Well I went with Two Brothers High Mount CF one. Of course you should really go with a full exhaust not just the slipon regardless of the manufacturer. Honda put on too much emissions crap which adds a bunch of weight and I'm sure it saps power.

I love the sound of my 2 brothers pipe. It is getting louder by the day. Two Brothers reported a 13 hp difference with their full system and a K&N Filter, plus it saves close to twenty pounds.

I highly recommend the Leo Vinci setup. Check out my post https://www.sportbikeworld.com/forum/...ML/000535.html

It is only the slip on and it is for an F4, but the quality should be the same for your bike.

If you have the money go with a full system, if not, you can upgrade later with the Leo and with the Two Bros.

I plan on getting the headder later on and rejetting.

I stayed away from Two Bros. because everyone and their mother has one on their Honda. I have only seen one other bike with a Leo Vinci on it. (Which surprised me)

tigerblade,

Do you not have skidmarks or not have underwear. Pete wants to know.

I would go for the M4 for the VFR. Great price, excellent quality and IMO the best sounding pipe on the VFR. I have heard it on the 750 and 800 VFRs.

I am also in the market for a slip on for my VFR800. I've heard that full systems take away from the mid range power of the bike and make it not as pleasurable to ride. I mostly want it for the sound and the look. I've heard that staintune are very unique and good quality. I want a high mount pipe but I don't want to lose any passenger footpegs. I also have a tailocker on my bike so the wolf system is out. I also want to keep my center stand.

Let me know what you get and how you like it.

Luke

The high mount two brothers pipe doesn't lose the rear pegs. So that's not an issue. The full system just fits exactly where the old system did. The pipe even has a rest for the centerstand machined in.

I think the two brothers is the best out there, along with Erion for Honda's.

I don't like the look of M4's. They look stubby and cheap IMO.

I don't think I've felt any loss in power in the mid range after I installed the system. The only thing that I would have changed is the fact that my FI light has been on for 4,000 miles. But it's running as good as it ever has. And the bike just keeps getting louder as I pile the miles on.

check this http://www.twobros.com/VFR/y2kvfr800/y2kVFR800dyno.html

I don't see any loss in power there. Except a little at 6,000 rpm but then it makes it up by 7,000. I don't cruise at 6,000 rpms so that's not an issue.

Just my two cents.

Ian
