well, here's my question. i've currently got the GYTR slip-on, but i've been playing with the idea of wrapping the pipes to lose some of the heat that eats up my legs (figuratively). a buddy of mine suggested getting an aftermarket midpipe so that CAT would be gone, but also mentioned it would be LOUD (and was excited when he mentioned that part b/c that's what he wants to do). does anybody have this combination? no cat, aftermarket midpipe, and the slipon? i'm just not a huge fan of the super-loud exhaust... got over that in highschool (just my opinion) and if removing the cat and replacing it with a new midpipe is going to make riding it nearly unbearable, then i'll just suck it up with the heat. thanks...

its bearable but a large difference from having the cat on. I didnt like it at firtst but it grows on you.

I dont think you would lose that much heat radiation from taking out the cat, IMO. Mine still keeps the legs toasty on certain days.

Not that BIG of a performance increase either.

Go full or go home (from the guy w/ the midpipe)

has anybody heard of this mjs perfomance header mod that they do to turn your current header into a full race system? they're offering it for $215 right now if you send them your headers. i'm just worried about it being SUPER loud (call me a pussy all you want, but when i haul ass, i'd rather not draw extra attention to myself with noise that doesn't need to be there)

I had a gytr stubby slip on and mjs race header on m 08. Too loud and the tone wasnt good. Annoying on the highway. Changed it out for a KR Tuned carbon slip. Love the way the bike sounds now. There is a "good sounding loud" and "bad sounding loud". The gytr sounds nice with the stock header but I definitely didnt like it with a race header or mid-pipe. Just my .02.

I have the gytr and a mid pipe. It is loud but i like it. the only prob is that it could draw some unwanted attention if you put it around 10k or even 8k in town. in the canyons its great.

that's what i was worried about... too much attention b/c of the decibel level. thanks for the advice. i might wait to get the header until i can get a new slip-on too.
