Aftermarket slip-on exhaust for C14?
« on: June 26, 2014, 01:51:38 pm »
Sorry to start what must be a well worn topic but I couldn't find the answers.  I want a decent slip on pipe and would like to see something other than 2 Brothers or Delkevic -- unless everybody loves them and they're the pipes to buy.  Leo Vince is out of business apparently.  A nice used pipe would be good too if you got one !:beerchug:

Thanks
Matt

If you are looking to attract attention and annoy your neighbors, Muzzy has the ticket. (No pun intended)

Not as loud and obnoxious as the 2bros IMO...  ???

Plus, Muzzys and Kawi go together like beer and nuts.  ;) :)

I tried the Muzzy, I really liked the mellow sound and sometimes I enjoy the sound of other bikes, BUT, as an old fart I realize there are other people on the planet and most of them, like me, appreciate peace & quiet. There's a lot more to it than just pleasing yourself and for that reason I decided not to be the obnoxious motorcyclist that that drives around screaming "hey everybody look at me"!
If you depend on loud pipes to save you, you're driving all wrong.

Apart from that, if you ride for more than 20 minutes, a loud pipe can be quite tiresome to your own ears too. On my FZ1, which I switched for a C14 yesterday, for a while I had a Holeshot slip-on. Unfortunately they send me the wrong one which was loud. After a few months I put back the original slip-on, I couldn't stand it anymore. The street version of that pipe was real nice though...

Really? I guess my slip-on will be a collector's item soon then.  :D

I put an Area P No Limits slip-on on my '10.  Love the sound; not obnoxious at all, no drone at speed (even with the windscreen fully raised).  Nice mellow note that lets you know you're on a 1400 when you get on it hard.  The full system (headers w/ no cats) is another animal altogether.  The entire neighborhood will know when you're coming and going.  Price is very reasonable too ($415 for stainless, $465 for carbon fiber).  Just my $.02.

Sorry 2Bro is what I had on my 07 Bandit and I went with it again on my 12 C14. Only thing I did extra was I had the mid pipe ceramic coated. Now it all matches. Eventually the entire bike will be blacked out.

I also went with an Area P, stainless steel slip-on.  Not loud at cruise, but definitely noticeable when you get on it and at idle.  Very good quality, and I like that the end caps are attached with button head Allen screws instead of rivets like others.  The end caps are machined from 6061 billet too.  Area P claims 14 lbs. weight savings and 5.6 HP/ 4.7 ft-lb gain.  I would buy again.

I have the Vance & Hines CS One on my 2013 C14. The stock baffle was a bit too loud and droning for me, so I got the next smaller size baffle. Idle sound is very nice - deep bass. There is no noticeable drone at any speed. When you romp on the throttle, the sound is fabulous.

I've got the Delkavic 13" tri-oval carbon. Really like it. Didn't want a loud exhaust, was looking for the weight savings.
Was concerned about the volume but the wife said it wasn't loud at all. So I ask my buddy that owns an ST1300. Asked him the same the question. He said at idle was very deep, throaty. He liked it.
I let him take it for a spin, He Loved It. Not obnoxious at all, just a nice warm feel til 8k then the animal reared his head. I recommend this pipe!!

I have a Holeshot on my '08.  It isn't loud at all.  My wife even says it doesn't sound bad.  I like the fact that it doesn't look anything at all like the stock scud launcher. (Sorry for you guys who like your V&H, but it's just a smaller-sized Electrolux to me)

Sorry you don't like the V&H, Bruce. My favorite description of the stock unit - potato canon.  :great:

Those of you with the V&H CS One...  I can't seem to find the baffle listed anywhere.  I think I would prefer it just a bit quieter, with the baffle in.  Where did you order the baffle?  Part number?  Or, does it come with the slip-on, and you decide whether to use, or not?
