muffler removal, is it really worth it ?

i have an 06 R6, with Two Bros slip-on.

i love the deep sound of straight pipe bikes, but was wondering if it was really worth all the extra $$$.

the mjs midpipe is a option i was checking out, everyone on here seems to love mjs stuff. but then you gotta buy the pcv. mjs has a deal that they will include a custom tuned pcv with the midpipe for extra $$$. actually saving you like $50.

ive also read on here that the best way to tune your pcv is to have your bike dyno'd. not something that i could find in NL, and realllly dont wanna take a boat ride to have it done

i was also hoping to start doing some track days this year here in NL, Canada.

any thoughts ?

^^^ After what he said, get a Bazzaz and an AFM and you can make your OWN map whenever you want.


Things I am sick of explaining on this forum:
  • What's the difference between an R6 and an R6s? HERE
  • Should I start on a 600 or a 250? HERE
  • How do I ask the forum a question and actually get an answer? HERE
  • Where do I find a map for my Bazzaz? HERE
  • Should I get a 520 kit for MOA POWAH? HERE
  • How does rotating mass work? HERE

Even the custom tuned map that MJS provides is baseline..... you'll get some pops and gurgles like I did (environment/motorcycle is different). The Autotune made some changes for the better, but I don't want to play around with it much.

After owning Dynojet products and then owning Bazzaz products, and experiencing the customer service on each, I would never go back to Dynojet. Both units essentially accomplish the same goal though, they just go about it in different ways. I've never regretted my Bazzaz purchase, ever.

Bazzaz > Dynojet. I would rather pay double for the Bazzaz to avoid dealing with Dynojet.

hit up chief, hes a very fair guy to deal with and will work with you based on your needs and specific set up. i would discuss plans with him first before making any parts purchases and set a plan in motion to make sure you are getting exactly what you need to attain your goals for the bike.

Re: muffler removal, is it really worth it ?

also, do you think i would really need the bazzaz after getting the flash? or is it just the convenience of being able to adjust the map to my specific needs/wants ?
