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.
Somone on another thread said why replace a big wiffle ball bat with a slightly smaller softball bat.
I have the cobra slip on, I love my softball bat  ;D

I like the look and sound of the Cobra, does it have the O2 sensor connection? I can't find that info.

Yes it does. I asked Shane that same question before I bought mine from SS.

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.

I feel the same way. I actually like the look of the exhaust. I love the looks of the bolt on it's own merits. I also love the bolt's looks for what it doesn't look like...a harley.

Haha! Yeah, I think that's why I changed my mind from the V&H Twin Slash. Beautiful pipes, but IMO... A bit Harley-ish. Now, to maintain cost, a bit of the original aesthetics, increase performance, and still make it a little different without annoying the neighbours... I'm feeling like the V&H Competition Series 2-into-1 Slip-On would be the best bang for my buck. Furthermore, I feel that it's the same sentiment that Greasyjonny has expressed that's got me looking almost exclusively at YAMAHA Star Custom Accessories for my beautiful bike. Just a long-winded expression of my thoughts at the moment. Sorry.

Vitrox,

Now that I've had the TBR Black Series (M-2 Carbon Slip-on) for a few weeks and have swapped out the suppressor tip (P1X) a couple of times, I'd have to say the loudness is a 9 and 7 (with and without respectively).

I put the suppressor tip on today, because I considered taking it down a notch (in consideration for neighbors and parking garage at work), and was a little disappointed how quiet the exhaust got.  It still sounded great and had less pops on deceleration, but it was too quiet for my taste.  The P1X tip reduces the sound by 7-8 db, so I may try to find the P1 tip which is supposed to only drop 3-4db.  Or I might just keep it super loud and proud.

Unfortunately there really isn't any information on the Chappell customs exhaust. Only thing you can do is contact them and order it.

I did just that and also ordered one of their chin scoops (last one  ;) ) so I'm feeling pretty good!  I was going to order the V&H slip on but loved thier red bolt for the build off so much I decided to order one from Chappell.

Chris was more than helpful and has an exhaust on it's way to me now!  I can't wait.

I'd reference that you can contact them too as Chris was very prompt and helpful.

I can seem to find the answer even though I am sure I am not the first. What exhaust will still allow my o2 and not cause a check engine light. My bike is 2015 and has lots of warranty but I want a pipe on it now. Slip-ons, full exhaust, I know I will need a tuner if I do intake too and that's down the line. I just want to be heard while riding here in Phoenix.

Good list.  I think the yoshimura is the way to go.  Waiting for prices to drop a bit

I believe both V&H systems use the o2 sensor. I'm sure there are others.

That being said if you just want it so you don't get an error message my EJK hasn't thrown an error in over 3k miles.

I thought they all had the O2 sensor mount.

the question should be the other way round, which ones don't have the mount?
