My R1200ST has stock pipes and is EXTREMELY quiet. I want to get after market for some sound, but also because the enormous exhaust can blocks most of the single sided swing arm.

I tested a Vulcan 900 something something and I would have LOVED to have that bike as just a city cruiser. I was terrified when I took it on the freeway and swore to Jesus that if I lived, I would never take it on it again! But in the city, it was fun as hell!

Not only that, but they have a LOT to gain by doing an ECU flash. I had ECUnleashed do mine, and its a completely different bike. Very smooth, and very strong throughout the rev range. And I got rid of a ton of the heat with the catless midpipe. Its a shame these bikes come so restricted from the factory, because it really is something after just a few tweaks.
"Restricted"? That's an understatement! Why on earth they decided to limit the throttle to 80%?

Back on the original subject... I HATE loud bikes with passion.

My biggest gripe with OEM mufflers is how ridiculously expensive they are! For example, each of the SV1000 mufflers, each one, is $850!! For the price of a SINGLE muffler, it has two, I can get a M4 2 into 1 full system with CF muffler and I'd have $100 to spare...

I am in similar fashion as serpentracer. I prefer aftermarket exhaust, but not obnoxiously loud.

But I have to say, my Arrow was "made" for my Daytona (literally), it needs it. I have to unleash my trumpet.

Im torn... On one hand I want a loud exhaust for the sv, on the other hand I REALLY don't need to draw any attention to myself given my daily riding style. Stealth is my friend. Decisions, decisions.

Loud pipes save lives.

My friend's dad's uncle's cousin twice removed knows a guy who's bookie dated this hooker whose ex boyfriend was in a horrible accident and lost all of his limbs... Now we call him Bob cuz he likes chillin in the pool... Anyway, the EMTs, nurses, doctors & sergeons all said he would have been killed if it weren't for his loud pipes.

True story.
