Agree! Probably the most aggressive set of pipes I have seen for the bolt so far... Only concern - heat on the inside if the leg sitting longer rides? Anyone have experience with exhausts of this nature?

I find the cost of mufflers and headers for motorcycles to be outrageously expensive. How can a slip-on muffler cost $500 to $600 dollars?  >:( A nice job of compiling the list though! The only part of my stock Bolt that I don't care for is the muffler. It looks too bulky to me. Does anyone know if someone makes a slip-on that looks better but is close to the stock one so that I don't have to buy a fuel controller? I'm perfectly happy with the stock performance of my Bolt.  ;D

I second this.  I didn't buy the bolt for horse power,  the stock exhaust is just so darn ugly!!

It's funny. When I first saw the bolt, I really liked the look of the exhaust and then when I bought it, I couldn't wait to buy a new one (plan's sort of for next year). But yesterday a guy came up to me asking about it and asked if I put that pipe on. When I told him it was stock and that I was planning on replacing it, he replied that he thought it was really cool looking. Make me take another, slightly more objective look at it and for some reason I'm considering sticking with it. I'm liking it more and more since. If I did replace it, I think I'd go with the Yoshi full system as it's reportedly got great performance gains and isn't ridiculously loud.

Hopefully the SS one extends out a bit longer then the one on Revzilla. Gonna suck for me since I know my legs would be close to the exhaust part.

My TBR Black Series Slip-On came with a removable sound tip.  With the tip, I'd say the TBR Black is about an 8.  Without it it's about a 9.  I have the tip off, and to put it into perspective, I coast half-way down my driveway (engine off), then throttle barely enough to tip-toe out of the neighborhood.

Maybe others would rate it plus or minus 1 point for loudness, but 8/9 (with/without tip) is my best guess.

Good to know. Will edit the ratings.

The Bassani seems pretty loud in the video, I noticed it's the upswept model the straight model has an inch longer baffle so it may be a bit quieter. Either way $729.95 is pretty spendy for a black 2 into 1 system. Then again the Akrapovic makes it seem like a bargain.

I've been considering a Supertrapp 4 inch universal 18 inches long, has anyone tried this yet? I like the idea of it being tunable and at $269 the price is right, plus they look pretty cool.

For my personal choice, I like the Voodoo. It's one of the two that don't look like a big canon. Why replace a Canon with another one slightly louder.
