Can anyone comment on the Delkevic full system vs the slip on, as far as the sound level?  I don't want to make noise for noise's sake and don't want to wake the neighbors when I go to work at 6:00 a.m.  I am at least getting the slip-on, but if I buy the full system it is about $86 cheaper than buying them separate.  I am going for the 18" muffler, probably stainless.  I have a 2018.  Thanks.

As far as the slip on goes... baffle out = deeper but not much louder. I think you're neighbours will be fine.

Thanks.  I am trying to get an idea of how much louder the full system would be vs a slip-on.  I guess that is subjective, but if it is too loud I don't want to go there.  That's why I'm going with the 18" can.

Ask the guys that have them installed.
They can give you an idea of loudness.
Shouldn't be that much louder than just the slip-on.
    Only thing different {that would effect sound} is the full system has no Cat.

Ride safe, Ted

The full system is not loud, running the 18" can without baffle. It's also not hot on the midpipe or the muffler, because there's no 900F cat in there. Mines on an 09, there were no sensors in my way and it has no dash lights or funny operation. Im running the Shoodaben AP flash, it runs killer and sounds perfect but definitely not obnoxious.

Great, thank you!  That's the kind of review I was looking for.  I'll go with the full system then.

Thanks again!

Put the Delkevic Full System on my 2018 Concours 14 and really like it.  Not too loud at all.  I didn't want to wake up the neighbors when I go to work in the morning.  I got the 18" stainless can because I didn't want it to be too loud.  Even when opening up on the road it is not too loud.  I have the DB Killer removed too.  Thank you all for the advice, it was a great decision.  Looks so much cleaner than stock too!

If you've taken the vid with a smartphone, you can text the vid easy enough.  I'll upload to google photos or youtube and then post a link.  PM me if you want to try that.

No flash yet.  Will probably go with Ivan's flash when I do.  I spoke to him about it before I bought the Delkevic and he said it was good-to-go.  I used his jet kit on my FZ1 and it was great - I know he does his homework.  Always found him to be very helpful.  I may wait until the factory warranty is up, not sure.

I would think with the full exhaust you would be running pretty lean without a flash.  Is there any popping on decel?  I got mine flashed by Ivan less than 2 months after I bought it new, no way I could have waited for warranty to run out, plus I bought another 3 years of warranty for a total of 6 and will probably buy 3 more if I still have the bike in 3 1/2 years.  Still haven't had a warranty issue after 2 1/2 years and according to the research I've done,  the main warranty items are TPMS batteries, and the windscreen adjusting mechanisms.  If you did have an engine issue I suppose you could always send it back to Ivan to reflash it back to stock before taking it in, oh and be sure to peel the sticker off of course😀

DON'T WAIT.  You're really missing out, whichever vendor you use. The driveability is night and day better and the power is stupidly addicting. I have Zero regrets on the 350 I paid Mr Steve, it's totally worth it. Just do it!
