I can understand the stealth thing, because I don't necessarily believe that loud pipes save lives (although even a possibility of a chance of somebody noticing it is better than no chance).
My problem with stock exhausts is this, though. First, they're crazy restrictive with all the EPA regulations these days, and depending on the bike, the fueling from the factory sucks. I just finished fixing all this on the R1, and if the bike ran from the factory like it runs NOW, the crossplane R1 wouldn't be at the bottom of every magazine shootout.
Second, depending on the bike and its placement, catalytic converters can be miserable from the heat.
The exception being the crossplane R1s. They just sound toooo good with a nice set of pipes.
