Well, so much for the whole "D&D pipes give you no gains whatsoever" or "D&D pipes cause you to lose hp". Seems as if the D&D pipe was a whopping 0.5hp behind the beloved Akra and actually made more HP than the Arata. Hell, it wasn't even the loudest pipe in the test.

I would not put a D&D on my bike, They are not all that good sounding and they are made cheaply!
I can only go by what I have personally experienced. I had a black satin D&D on my 6R. It had a nice deep tone at idle and it would scream at the top. Not raspy, not a tin can full of marbles sound. Got plenty of compliments on it. Had the pipe for 3 years and never experienced one problem with it. Best of all, I got it for a little over $200. Spending over $500 for a slip-on just to get a "cool" Akrapovic sticker is a bit extreme. Esp. for the little power gains they provide.

Can't speak from personal experience with D&D on other bikes, though.
