I just checked out their website and they actually do not have one listed under GTR1400 or C-14. I would want to be carefull of outside heat and relation to the saddle bags, short or long pipes. Who knows though the site said they have only been in business 5 years, it maybe a quality product for a great price and they want to get their product out there to start making customers pass on a positive buzz.
 Hear is one guys review that I only quickly scanned:  http://www.cbrxx.com/engine-airbox-exhaust-fuel-delivery/11516-delkevic-slip-exhaust-review.html 
There's no real way of explaining the intoxication of a rock and roll situation you get when listening to your favorite songs. It tran sends standard human capabilities, the adrenalin is like hot molten lava cruising through the veins... and with this kinda inspiration is the reason I don't listen to music when I ride.... hahahaha

Here is a left side and back shot of mine.  Let me know if you would like to see anything else.  I don't have any very close up shots, but if you look on ebay and see the pictures posted there, they are very accurate.  That is what I am talking about, I wouldn't put those shots up due to the color and overall finish around the welds, etc... but they did and it is exactly what you will see when you get them.  They aren't bad, just not as good overall in the finish department as most others

Well, I think Santa's bringing them for me...30 day money back, I'll try them.  The folks on the Honda forum say they're good.

I'd love to hear them!

If you order it, let us know how it worked out. And more importantly how it sounds.  :great:

I will make a YouTube vid as well...hurry Santa, hurry!

Hoping that it's quiet at steady throttle and growls when I twist it!

I don't know if the wife got me the carbon or the steel...either is fine with me...I rarely ride without the bags, so it's mostly going to be hidden...(somewhat).

Here is my evaluation so far. I ordered the 17 inch tri oval carbon version on friday and it was on the porch today when i got home.  First off i have never used an after market silencer on any of my other bikes so again, just my opinion.

I opened the box, it was packed nice and secure. I pulled all the parts out to check everything over. the first thing i noticed is their was not instructions of any kind. It is not to hard to figure out where everything goes, plus lots of pics on the internet.

Appearance, again cant compare it to a two brothers or cs one since i never owned either. The thing that stands out is the welds are a distinct color contrast to the rest of the parts. Again this is well visualized on their web page so it was no surprise.

Install was pretty straight forward and easy. the only part that caught me by surprise was an extension that had to be between the clamp around the muffler and the rear attachment on the bike. I had everything just sitting in place and the side bag would not go down into locking position because it was hitting top of the muffler. Easy enough to figure out than where the extension needed to go.

Once everything was in place and bag fit on i torched everything in place with some blue lock tight. I wiped it all down with a warm soapy town and dried it and fired it up.

I was pleased, not much louder than stock pipe, which is what i want. I tried it with baffles in and out. i can tell a little difference but not much with the baffles out other than it has a whistle with the baffle out and the screw that holds the baffle out. I read on other forums to eliminate the whistle just put the screw with a nut to cover the hole. I opted to lock tight in the baffle.

I am happy with the look of it and in the end that's all that matters. I did not get out for a ride yet. Suppose to be low 20's here in the morning so i got the gerbings out and plan on riding to work in the morning.

They sound nice.  They are not too loud, but have a deeper note to them than stock naturally at idle.  They are fairly quite with or without the baffle, with the baffle mine seem to have much less decel popping.  They only get kind of loud when you really call on it!  The sound is perfect to me, the finish leaves just a little to be desired to the competition.

If possible could any of you guys post a few photos of the exhaust on your bike?  Thanks in advance.

That looks good.  I was going to order the oval 18 but that 17 looks long as it is.

looking at the photos it appears the muffler portion is 14" but the total length is very close to being the same as yours.   Both the 18" and 14" measure 350 mm.

Do all aftermarket exhausts cause the loss of the heat shield on the mid-pipe?

Otherwise, I think it looks fine. If it produces nice music, and the finish holds up, it should be a viable option for us more budget oriented owners.

Nice, man!

What length did you get?

Pull the baffle - it's easy - one bolt.  I didn't want to kill myself pulling (I tried pulling it straight out with pliers, but it was snug), so I used an allen wrench through the hole as a lever and it popped right out.

It's not much louder, until you ask it to be louder (twist hard)! I'm really happy with it.

Got a 17" tri-oval stainless two weeks ago. Nice construction and finish , packaged well, fast shipping.  Installation went fine except there was no bolt included to connect the pipe strap to the drop link. I had a 3/8" x 1" stainless bolt and locknut in the shop, so no problem, but if not would have meant a trip to hardware outlet to finish. (not a deal breaker, would buy again). Sounded a bit loud to start (baffle removed), but only took a couple of rides to get accustomed, still can listen to the stereo up to 60-70, then the wind sweeps most everything away.
