I've heard the theory put forth that says the more bends you have in your exhaust path, the less power you make. Any one else heard this? I've had a salesman at Hard Racing tell me that Micron "doesn't sell" the Serpent system in a high mount because of the extra bend in the mid pipe and how it robs HP and that Micron is all about HP (I'll post his answer if I can find it). So that would lead me to believe that these Froggies would make less power than a standard mounted slip on. And if that's the case, then why does Ducati, and now Honda make underseats with all those kinky bends?
