Question 00' Mille exhaust

I know...there are as many opinions about which exhaust as there are members. Having said that...I need some opinions. I'm looking for a pipe/chip/airbox set up for the '00 Mille. I was all ready to go with the renegade, but I'm not crazy about having to repack every 5K miles. My main concern is increasing HP (duh!), but I don't want an obnoxiously loud sound. This is a street bike set-up (95% of the time). Thanks...Rick

I prefer 4 strokes over 2 strokes...you get 2 extra strokes!!!

A buddy of mine has the same bike, and is running the RSC Ti shotguns with a BB Power EPROM. He said the bike is MUCH improved from a drivability perspective, and I can tell you for sure that those pipes sound SWEET!

I have a set of LeoVinci's on my Falco that I'm using with the Renegade airkit and a FactoryPro EPROM. HIGHLY recommended combination!

It is one of the essential features of incompetence that the person so afflicted is incapable of knowing that he is incompetent. To have such knowledge would already be to remedy a good portion of the offense.

They sound GREAT!!!

Not quite as deep as Termis on a Duc, and MUCH angrier sounding on top. I'm VERY, VERY happy with them.

I could never call them "quiet," though they're not anywhere near as obnoxious as most of the Hardleys around here. They've held up very well over the last 2 years, with only a few stains to show for it. They're due for a repack, though: A couple weeks ago I went by a parked SUV at 250MPH, and set off it's alarm.

Click on the link to my photo album: There's a dyno chart in there showing stock, pipe/chip, and pipe/chip/airbox curves. All on the same Dynojet 150, by the same operator. The all stock curve was taken about a year before the others, but the pipe/chip and pipe/chip/airkit runs were done within an hour of each other. We actually did the mod with the bike still sitting on the dyno, so it's a true before/after deal.

Oh yeah - the guys at Evoluzione Motorsports did a big pipe comparison, and found that the stock headers on the RSV are actually pretty good: Spending the extra cash on a full system doesn't gain you as much as you might think, though should still be necessary if you plan on doing head work.

Hope that helps!
