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.

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 ?
