do you sell your OEM one or do you keep it, to put on when you sell the bike (and sell the aftermarket one separatelly)?

i keep my oem one, but that's in case of a crash and the aftermarket gets bent or rashed up.

However, IMO it's always a good idea to do some parting out before you sell too, because you'll make more that way. Either way, I keep the stocker

I kept mine in case I do a track day somewhere that has noise restrictions.

Keep it...You never know when you might need it again...

And even if you do try to sell it, you're not going to get much...

just curious why you would put on an aftermarket pipe, rejet or remap for the aftermarket pipe and then swap the pipes out when you go to sell it making it run like crap? Prolly not gonna help ya sell it.

Because some after market pipes that you can purchase can run in the thousands and you won't get that back selling it with the bike. You'll make more money selling it seperately.

I keep all the old parts I swap out for gee-whiz parts. Still have my stock turn signals, exhaust can, etc. Anything not completely worn out like old chains or tires. I also prefer mods that aren't permanant. So I screwed down my indiglo gauge faces without using the adhesive. I got flushmounts that didn't require any cutting, same as I did with my frame sliders.
The only thing ireversable I did was hack off the fender and swap grips. Other than that, I can return my bike to stock. Oh yeah, and I had to can my rear sprocket from wear.

I keep mine. If I sell the bike the after market goes with the bike and so does the OEM. WHat would I need it for?

On this note, are there any a/m exhausts that don't require rejetting?
